KCC Culinary Clinics

This exciting new program will immerse kids into the world of cooking, nutrition, baking and entertaining.  Each clinic will be offered one Saturday each month for 4 hours in beautiful downtown Winter Garden!  All clinics will be held at the Winter Garden Mason Lodge.

Jr. Chefs will receive a skills patch for each clinic they attend.  Those who attend all of the culinary clinics will receive a Junior Chef jacket presented at a special ceremony hosted by the KCC instructors. 

Homemade Pasta & Plant Based Cooking

This 4 hour clinic will engage chefs-in-training (ages 7-17) in the art of making homemade pasta from scratch. They will also learn how to make perfectly roasted veggies and a cashew cream sauce that will rival any alfredo sauce on the planet. We will also make a marinara sauce that will slow cook as we make our pasta. This hands on clinic will encourage kids to try new foods, work with their hands and learn basic kitchen skills.
