Every culinary master knows that in cooking, the presentation is as important as the taste. This new fusion of our tried and true Art and Cooking camps, which we call “The Art of Cooking”, will put the imaginations, as well as the artistic and culinary talents of our campers to the test. Our week-long camp will teach campers new recipes and the culinary skills to make these tasty treats a delicious reality, and will also allow them to channel their imaginations and find their style in the presentation of both their dishes and the artistic details of the surrounding décor. All they learn will be put to the test within the camp at various points throughout the week, leading up to the end-of-the-week parent lunch on Friday.

Any chef, cook, or culinary professional would tell you that cooking is an art, but we would argue that it is a fusion of both art and science, the latter of which is the focus of this camp. In Edible Science camp we will be creating delicious food using various types of scientific reactions. We will be observing these reactions, and then tasting the delicious product that these reactions create. This is the smart way to learn to cook: this is Edible Science!
