Here’s a mouth-watering popular summer camp that lives up to its name. Camp Delicious! is all about delicious food—preparing it, serving it, learning about it, and most of all, eating it.
During the five days of camp, under the guidance of some of Pittsburgh’s most notable chefs, teens will gain the skills and confidence necessary to create meals from around the world, discover new flavors and gain independence in the kitchen. They will learn and practice the vocabulary of culinary methods, including knife skills, and hands-on techniques for working with meat, poultry, dough, and other ingredients.
Throughout the week, campers will prepare diverse recipes, participate in tastings and learn where food comes from, how it grows and ways to establish a healthy relationship with food. They will train their palates to appreciate the many distinctive flavors of herbs and spices.
By week’s end, the campers will have blossomed in their abilities to prepare and appreciate real food; they will return to their own home kitchens with the skills and knowledge to create delectable meals for their own families.
Please note: Camp Delicious! is not designed for those who have significant dietary restrictions.
