County 4H offering Spring Break cooking camps

March 5, 2012 by Randy Keck

The Parker County 4-H will host two Kitchen Boot Camps designed to help youth develop the basic skills needed to appreciate the culinary and baking arts, but will also educate them with the cuisines of different cultures. The camps will be held at the Texas AgriLife Extension office on 604 N. Main Street in Weatherford.

Lil’ Chefs, which is geared for kids 7 to 10 years old, is from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. March 14-16. Kids venture into a delightful experience creating foods based on the three award winning books “Ratatouille,” “Strega Nona” and “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.” Our Lil’ Chefs will take these books and a recipe book home.

Passport on a Plate is for 11-18 year olds and is from 2-5 p.m. March 14-16. This is for kids who want to travel the world through a culinary adventure. This year students will work with recipes from Thailand, the Polynesian Islands and Mozambique. The young chefs expand their palates, reinforce academic and social skills, and learn about food safety and knife skills while experimenting high quality flavors and ingredients. This camp is packed with culinary excitement and tasty adventures!

Classes will fill-up, with 20 students maximum in each session. Registration is $55/child, and no spots will be held without payment.
For more information, call the Extension office at 817-598-6172.
