YCACrest_trans Weekly Classes!

Young Chefs is the perfect recipe for teaching children that cooking is an enduring life skill that can be artistic, creative, and sometimes quite suprising! Each class incorporates culinary skills that build upon each other to progress into more complex food preparation, such as leavening, tempering, knife skills docking and piping, just to name a few. What's docking you ask? Find a YCA Chef Club Member - they would be happy to tell you!
