PREP's Kids Summer Cooking Camps are,

if we may say so ourselves -- just the bomb!

In our camps, kids get to learn, experiment and be adventurous in a low discipline, low rules learning environment where learning comes by doing. Our seasoned staff provides examples of tasks and then lets the kids do the work!  At PREP kids learn to cook by doing and by making mistakes and fixing them and by trying new things and improving on them. Essential cooking tasks like cutting and measuring and kneading and shaping and mixing and fixing and tasting are performed regularly by the kids.  And kids never cease to amaze us how capable and creative they are in the kitchen.

Now in our 11th year, PREP's Summer Kids Cooking Camps run Mondays thru Thursdays from June thru August.      >>>more info

Kids Classes

Hold your child's next party at PREP!

Your little darling can be executive chef for the day by picking the guest list, the menu, the desserts, the music and calling all the shots.

  • 100% Hands-On Cooking
  • Kids Make Everything!
  • Everything Made from Scratch

Kids' parties last 2 1/2 hours and kids make 3 recipes of their choosing (or our experienced party planners can suggest a perfect menu for you).

At PREP's Kids' Cooking Parties, we guarantee more fun than should be allowed!

PREP's Kids' Classes are not like other kids classes where they pass around a bowl and a whisk and  each kid gets to take turns stirring.  Nooooo.  At PREP, kids make recipes  from scratch from handmade pasta to salads to French macarons -- whatever  is on our menu - the kids make it!   And at PREP, kids learn kitchen safety, ingredients and knife skills as well.  By the end of a PREP Kids' Cooking Class, your little chef will be chopping parsley like pepper flakes and wanting to come back for more!
