Cooking camp welcomes children into the gourmet kitchen March 25-27.Â The Biltmore Hotel will offer a tasty diversion for children enjoying spring break in Coral Gables with the debut of its Kids Spring Break Cooking Camp. Ages 9 and up are invited to visit the renowned Biltmore Culinary Academy for a memorable hands-on experience.Â Chef Jeannette Ozga, the Biltmore Culinary Academyâ€™s seasoned instructor, has cooked up three unique menus for campers to create. Each menu includes an entrÃ©e, side dishes and dessert that are sure to delight ambitious young chefs with palates beyond PB&J sandwiches.
On March 25, campers will revel in the aroma of fresh tomato sauce, as they craft an Italian feast from scratch. A fusion of Asian flavors will tantalize taste buds during the camp on March 26, and campers will explore a variety of fun foods on March 27, including Rice Krispies-encrusted chicken tenders, potato pancakes, beef empanadas and ambrosia.Â Each camper will receive an apron and recipes to take home. In addition to refining their palates, campers will gain confidence in their culinary skills, learn important lessons about kitchen safety, and perhaps develop a passion for washing dishesâ€”something moms everywhere can appreciate.Â The camp runs March 25-27 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., allowing parents to carve out some grown-up time for themselves. Campers may participate in one day of the camp for $95, two days for $165 or all three days for $250.Â Parents may call 305-913-3131 to register, and learn more at www.biltmorehotel.com/bca. Registration closes March 21 and each day is limited to 10 junior chefs.
