Summer at Chefschool


Young chefs looking for a fun, hands-on culinary experience can join the new chefschool summer cooking camps for kids and teens at the Hood Kitchen in Costa Mesa. It’s ideal for kids in elementary, junior high and high school. From basics to international and even baking classes, kids participate in week-long, half day camps with a unique 4:1 student to teacher ratio.

In the basics class, kids will learn real cooking skills (knife skills, recipes, chemistry of cooking, chef-approved techniques) and real recipes - no "kiddie" recipes.  All with healthy, wholesome ingredients and no packaged foods. The international cooking class will explore classic cooking from a different county, while learning basic cooking skills. The classes will focus on the foods of France, Italy, Greece, Thailand and Mexico. The baking classes will include classic baking techniques and an understanding of the chemistry behind baking.

Camp is $325 per week with a 5% discount ($309/week) when registering siblings or additional weeks of camp. Space is limited.

For more information and how to register for classes, call Chef Heidi Ristau at 714.474.6147 or email at or

The Hood Kitchen is at 350 Clinton Suite A  in  Costa Mesa.
