• Summer Camps for Aspiring Chefs! 06.04.14


    The sun is shining and the sky is clear, summer is finally here and your kids want to have fun and relax! Fill up their summer schedule at Blue Ribbon Cooking & Culinary Center on Lake Union. Blue Ribbon is in its 19th year of hosting fun, educational culinary camps for kids of all ages. Cooking camps help build confidence and creativity as they don their chef’s hat and venture to the kitchen to create meals, bake pastries, learn to chop, slice and make grocery lists.


    All kids camps except Mom & Me, will end with a celebratory graduation dinner where kids show off the culinary skills they learned to their friends and family. Each camp will supply your little chef with cooking necessities, including: a personalized chef’s jacket, apron, professional-quality chef’s knife, cookbook of recipes, utensils, and more!


    Blue Ribbon offers a number of camps that cater to all interests. Check out the list below and sign up your child, grandchild, niece or nephew for camp at Blue Ribbon before they fill up!
