Why We Love It

At Young Chef's Academy, kids get to have a hands-on cooking party with the birthday child being the star chef.

Named "Top 10 Best Birthday Parties" by Parents Magazine, a Young Chef's Academy cooking party gives participants hands-on cooking activities, learning useful skills to share with their families at home.

The all inclusive themed packages at a Young Chef's Academy cooking party includes details such as the invites and clean-up. They can provide invitations, food and drink, paper products and decorations. Each guest goes home with a recipe card.

"We had our daughters 6th birthday there today and everything was PHENOMENAL! Chef Kelly was our party host and did an incredible job leading a group of 5 and 6 year old gals (who were quite rambunctious before the party started!). We chose the "Rockstar party" and added on cupcakes. It was both the perfect amount of involvement for the kids and food for them to eat. Chef Kelly was able to hold the interest of all the children while teaching them about what they were doing and encouraging hands on involvement. And as a parent, the best part was not having to do anything to get ready! Everything is taken care of. We will definitely be coming back for individual classes and hopefully more parties!" - Kitty Barnes, Facebook

"We celebrated our daughter's 10th Birthday with the from scratch spaghetti class. It was delicious, well organized, and the instructor was great with a roomful of kids. Fantastic party!! Out daughter was tickled with the whole event." - Bernice Holland, Facebook
