Online Summer Cooking Series

What We Do

For the youth, anything is possible. They are not intimidated by kitchen tools, sharp knives, or heat sources. Chef Instructor Sheila Crye demonstrates culinary skills online, and they give a return demonstration of novel cooking methods. What a great way to discover interesting ingredients and extraordinary new tastes!

Each session of online cooking sessions is unique, because the needs of each group differ, and so do the menus that they learn how to imagine and then cook themselves. At the end of the session, kids will have a digital directory on their computer of all the foods and menus they’ve made. Chef Sheila is gratified to learn that many of these recipes become part of their family’s regular menu rotation.

Sign up now, and tell your friends! Cooking is even more fun when kids do it with their friends. Now that the Summer Cooking Series is online, friends and family members can cook together, even if they live far away!

Class Experience
Young Chefs started in 2004, directing summer cooking camps, Saturday classes and after-school cooking programs. We now create interactive online classes available to a global audience that empower kids to get dinner on the table. We have taught thousands of hours of culinary instruction and parents and kids love our style of cooking classes.

With the proper pre-class prep, our lessons are designed for students to be able to cook without parental participation, but parents know their children best. Some children may need a hand with some equipment or instructions.

  1. This is an amazing opportunity for little folks. My daughter is always in the kitchen with me and she’s almost 7. She loves learning to cook. Wish the 6-9 group was in August after summer school is over as I’ve already signed up my minions for summer school! Will keep checking back for another future opportunity!

    1. Hi Tiona, I’ve just posted the 2017 summer schedule. Hope your daughter will have an opportunity to cook with us this year! –Chef Sheila

  2. Do you offer a cooking camp for kids with food allergies?

    1. Hi Michaela, we can accommodate most, but not all, food allergies in our regular camps. For example, if a camper is allergic to peanuts, we won’t cook with any peanut-related products. If your child has multiple food allergies and you know of other children or young people with the same allergies, we could plan a Saturday class or camp especially for them. My fourteen years of experience as a registered nurse helps me share with young people how to create tasty menu plans that avoid foods that are a danger to their health. Write me at to discuss your child’s allergies. Hope we can make cooking camp work out!
