Master Chef is back and better than ever! For newcomers, our highly popular Master Chef program is all about teaching our students to be creative with food and ultimately cook with their hearts more than their heads! How do we teach this, you ask? Simply by incorporating daily afternoon challenges and group recipe development exercises only offered by Rooks to Cooks. 

All our afternoon challenges are preceded with power house culinary theory meant to guide your master chef-in-the-making to success during their challenges. First and foremost, we build these challenges to be fun, while at the same time they are meant to motivate our campers to help them find their unique cooking style. Our goal is to have the challenges act as a platform for our chef-in-the-making, so they can soar as confident, creative and skilled young cooks.

In addition to the daily challenges, we will spend the mornings teaching our campers more advanced cooking techniques and theory, helping them to build their knowledge and skill in the culinary arts. They will, of course, have hands-on practice through the preparation of 2-3 daily recipes excluding those completed in the challenges. These recipes will act as their daily lunch and take homes to share with the family. 

Objective: To teach our campers advanced culinary skills and knowledge while building their confidence in themselves and their abilities. Upon completion of this program, our campers will understand a wide range of culinary theories, how to use ratios and their foundational knowledge to cook without recipes, and have the skills and confidence to cook independently at home. 

Daily Challenges:

  • Monday - Risotto recipe development. Taste vs. Flavour 
  • Tuesday - Nailed it, Cake Boss. 
  • Wednesday - Iron Chef 
  • Thursday - Chopped! 
  • Friday - Pop-up preparation 

We recognize the potential in every camper and know, if given the chance, each camper will shine as bright as the biggest professional chefs out there. Join us, sit back and watch the magic unfold!
