Kids Cooking Programs

Fat Tuscan Gainesville Florida White Paint Stroke.

Summer Kids Cooking Camp

The Fat Tuscan cooking programs for kids offers young students the most comprehensive cooking camp in Florida. Our students get a full day of one-on-one attention from experienced chefs working in a real kitchen. From personally preparing their own recipes with our hands-on learning approach, we encourage each student to prepare an assortment of foods and meals for themselves and their families each day. This camp is perfect for the kid who is excited about learning to cook and wants experience in the kitchen. We provide each one of our small class size, week-long camps with the opportunity for each student to feel engaged and comfortable working with food. We emphasize enjoying the creativity of cooking as it nourishes a child from the inside out and as a result there are always lots of laughs and love in our camp kitchens. Learning through tactile engagement and a hands-on approach to building self esteem, we feel that the art of cooking and the science of cooking is a strength which can extend into many areas of a child’s development and education.
