Cooking, baking short courses for kids at Center for Culinary Arts

THE CENTER for Culinary Arts (CCA) Manila offers the Young Chef’s Academy (YCA) as a year-round short course for children and teens. It was previously held only every summer through the Young Chef’s Boot Camp.

The two-hour classes will be held Tuesday-Sunday for four weeks at the CCA Kitchen, 3/L, Eastwood Mall, Libis, QC.

CCA continuing education programs manager Gigi Angkaw said they decided to make YCA a year-long course based on the positive response from students and parents.

The Little Chefs category is for children 3-6 years old, accompanied by a parent/ guardian, 10 a.m.-12 noon. It covers No-Bake Cookies; Fun-shaped Sandwiches; Smiley Pizza; Muffins and Cupcake Deco; and Shakes, Smoothies and Sundaes. Chef Peachy Mathay, who used to handle the Chef’s Boot Camp, heads.

Junior Chef Cuisine for 7-10-year-olds, 1-3 p.m., offers Incredible Edible Egg Dishes, Chicken 3 Ways, Baking for Fun, and Restaurant Faves. Chef instructors will do the demo for each recipe and ensure that each student understands the basics of cooking and food preparation. CCA Kitchen’s studio is equipped with flat-screen TV monitors for an interactive experience.

Lastly, Teen Cuisine for 11-16-year-olds, 4-6 p.m., teaches more advanced recipes under the themes Rice Toppings and Stir-fry; Munch and Crunch Appetizers; Toss and Turn Pizza and Pasta; and Choco Loco Bakes and Desserts.
