After teaching several cooking camps Chef Theodore Leaf was asked by parents to create his very own. This year we are excited to offer a dynamic cooking camp full of fun and creativity. Campers will learn everything from proper knife skills to high wire tasks like creating emulsified sauces. Each day will also include a presentation from Chef Theodore’s network of farmers, butchers, and even a celebrity food stylist (hello Instagram) and more. So much work and passion has gone into making this concept a reality and we look forward to providing a premium camp experience and inspiring campers to take their cooking to new heights.
