We know you will be thrilled with the kitchen facility at the Bethesda Lutheran Church, 20 Union Street, located in the heart of Unionville. This location is at the corner of Euclid St. and Union St., just one block west of Main Street and north of Hwy 7. The church is surrounded by beautiful green space where we will be taking our daily breaks. The large air-conditioned kitchen and adjoining hall provide an ideal space for all our camp activities. Our instructors look forward to working with your chefs-to-be to build on their skills and enjoy a whole week of deliciousness and fun.

To teach our campers advanced culinary skills and knowledge while building their confidence in themselves and their abilities. Upon completion of this program, our campers will understand a wide range of culinary theories, how to use ratios and their foundational knowledge to cook without recipes, and have the skills and confidence to cook independently at home. 

In the pursuit of changing things up from our previous Master Chef camps, we are pleased to introduce Master Chef 2.0. Just like our original Master Chef program, Master Chef 2.0 is all about teaching our students to be creative with food and ultimately cook with their hearts more than their heads! We teach this by incorporating daily afternoon challenges and group recipe development exercises only offered by Rooks to Cooks. 

Menu sneak peek:

The daily challenges are as follows:  Monday – Vinaigrette Visionary  Tuesday – Cupcake Wars  Wednesday – Iron Chef  Thursday – Chopped!  Friday – Pop-up preparation 


Review Full Course Description

All our afternoon challenges are preceded with power house culinary theory meant to guide your master chef-in-the-making to success during their challenges. First and foremost, we build these challenges to be fun, while at the same time they are meant to motivate our campers to help them find their unique cooking style. Our goal is to have the challenges act as a platform for our chef-in-the-making, so they can soar as confident, creative and skilled young cooks.

In addition to the daily challenges, we will spend the mornings teaching our campers more advanced cooking techniques and theory, helping them to build their knowledge and skill in the culinary arts. They will, of course, have hands-on practice through the preparation of 2-3 daily recipes excluding those completed in the challenges. These recipes will act as their daily lunch and take homes to share with the family. 

Due to the challenging nature of this program, it is mandatory that our Master Chef students complete at least one intermediate or advanced camp session prior to registration in order to learn the basic skills of the kitchen beforehand. Beginners are not permitted to join this session.
