Kids U Summer Camp: Learn to Be a Real Chef (Grades 9-12, rising)

Delve into the world of the culinary arts and learn how to become a real chef!

In this camp you’ll have the rare opportunity to work in a commercial kitchen and be trained by an American Culinary Federation Certified Executive Chef.

Each day you’ll prepare and consume a delicious gourmet meal and learn a new set of skills to take home with you.

You’ll discover food safety and sanitation skills, knife precision and safety, stock techniques, cheese making, homemade sauces, and savory soups. You’ll also learn how to build flavor profiles, be creative with prepared foods, reduce fats in a recipe, and build healthy eating habits.

During our last session you’ll receive a certificate of completion and a CD that contains all the recipes you prepared. 

Note: You’ll need to wear a white shirt, long black pants, closed-toe shoes, and a hat or hair restraint; only single band rings on fingers are permitted.

Please note that Learn to Be a Real Chef: Introduction to Culinary Arts is designed for students in rising grades 9-12.


Kids U summer camps at the University of Tennessee provide a wonderful opportunity for students in grades 3-12 (rising) to learn, have fun, and explore their interests in areas such as technology, art, photography, cooking, chemistry, anthropology, and much more.
