Kids Summer Cooking Camp
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.
This Cooking Camp is for kids 12-16
We will be hosting two sessions at the bright and fun Hedley & Bennet apron factory in Downtown Los Angeles.
Morning session 9AM-1PM
Afternoon Session 1PM-5PM
Each 4 hour hands on class will focus on a different classic culinary technique.
Knife skills, stocks, salads & vinaigrettes.
Proteins and Sauces
Hand-made pasta: Gnocchi with brown butter sage sauce
The final day the campers get to show off their skills by hosting a multi course lunch/dinner for the parents combining all of the skills they learned during the week into one delicious meal.
This camp is $495 and includes all food and a Hedley & Bennet apron.

Theodore Leaf is the real life story of a small town boy who against all odds worked to find success in Hollywood. The root of his inspiration began with a wig from the store window of his family’s bridal salon in rural Ohio, which sparked into a passion for the art of transformation. After completing his studies at Paul Mitchell he made his first big splash into the world of entertainment as the youngest contestant on Bravo’s Shear Genius.
The show opened new windows for Theodore and landed him a coveted spot as a top stylist at Sally Hershberger Salon in West Hollywood. Since then Theodore’s title has shifted from “hairstylist” to a man of many trades, still growing today. Having never looked back, Theodore worked both sides of the lens producing his own YouTube channel featuring numerous tutorials reaching 5,000,000 views. He has been featured on television shows including NBC’s Fashion Star, E!’s Fashion Police and Style Network’s How Do I Look?
In 2013 Theodore became the Beauty Editor at Large for Glamour Magazine and has represented the brand & contributed several articles focusing on digital beauty influencers. He is the host of the popular digital series Elevator Makeover and the upcoming Bad Hair Day both produced by Conde Nast Entertainment.
