Today’s children and youth are no longer satisfied with schnitzel and fries. They know about food, they understand menus and take an interest in cooking and baking from a young age. In order to meet these growing demands and provide children with professional, safe and enjoyable tools for working in the kitchen, the Food Channel will provide cooking classes at Camp Kimama. This will turn your summer into a culinary experience of a lifetime.
The workshops will be given by chefs and confectioners from the Food Channel, who will share tips and trade secrets. They will instruct them on the basic fundamentals of cooking and baking.
Each workshop will focus on a different subject, allowing the participants to experience a wide variety of recipes and to return home with tools for their first steps in the kitchen.
The workshops will be hands-on and experiential in nature whereby participants will practice preparing foods. In the end of each workshop, they will get to taste the dish they worked on during the workshop.
Workshop topics will be diverse and reflect the Israeli cuisine and its culture.

*This track has an additional fee.
