Many of us showed an interest as children in what our parents were doing in the kitchen, and some were lucky enough to be taught the basics. Kids today are even more enterprising, and may not be satisfied with being allowed to make the salad or chop the squash. If this reminds you of your young protegés, sign them up for the Kulinary Kids Cooking School, a day camp for kids ages 11 to 16, running Aug. 22 to 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day, at The Maine Table (700 Main St.) in South Portland.
Chef Bill Irish, who brings Chopped Challenge experience, will lead the camp. He will teach from many cuisines, including French, Japanese, Mediterranean, Thai, and more, including good old American comfort food. The end of the week will feature a Chopped Challenge theme for campers to enjoy. Each will go home with a recipe packet.
