Cookies: Wednesday, July 10

Who doesn\'t love a good cookie warm out of the oven? Today you will get to sample 3 examples of cookies that are great enjoyed warm from the oven or later cooled with a glass of milk.

Bagels and Pretzel Bites: Thursday, July 11

Store bought bagels don\'t always have that chew that we look for in a good New York Style Bagel. Often it seems like they are made from bread dough that they punched a hole in the center. The same with soft pretzels, they lack the chew you are looking for. In this class you will not only learn how yeast works, but how boiling the dough before baking can change the whole texture and finish. We will be making sandwiches with our bagels today so no snack is necessary.

Water Bagels with assorted toppings; bagel sandwich bar (assortment of meats, cheeses and garnishes for making sandwiches); pretzel bites with honey mustard dipping sauce.

Pizza Party: Friday, July 12

We will continue our focus on yeasted doughs today by creating our own homemade pizzas. We will have a variety of toppings, sauces, and cheeses available to create a Pizza Bar.

Kids and Teen Summer Camps for 2019

If you are looking for a great camp for your kids this summer take a look and what we have to offer in these very hands on cooking and baking camps. Kids and Teens love to cook and explore new foods. With the popularity of cooking shows kids are really getting into cooking and for those who have picky eaters, learning to cook can be a game changer. The more kids cook the more new foods they will try. In these camps we try and get your child to learn about new foods while teaching them how to use a knife, be organized, and even better clean up as they cook. Cooking is also a great way to learn about different cultures. With that in mind this summer\'s themes will be food from different countries. These camps fill up so if you get closed out please get on a wait list, because if we get enough we will run the class again. Let us know at the time of registration if your child has any food allergies or other special needs. Please have your child wear closed toed shoes and tie back long hair. Please have them bring a few containers to take home any leftovers they may have. Each of these classes will have a vegetarian option for those who need it and for those who want to try it. These classes are not vegan or gluten free. This year the camps will be taught by Teresa Scrimenti. Teresa is new to teaching at WRSoC. Her first classes for us in the Winter and Spring of 2019 were a sell out. She has a passion for teaching, food, and is great with kids. We are very excited to have her on board.
