Young Chefs Academy is a unique culinary school that is specially designed for children of all ages.  YCA takes the fear and unknown of having a young chef in the kitchen by providing a safe environment that encourages discovery and creativity.  Weekly classes are the perfect place for students to develop, build upon and sharpen their culinary skills as they progress through our structured program week by week.  Planned around a unique monthly theme, each class is an entirely new experience that incorporate culinary skills that build upon each other to progress over time to more complex food preparation and presentation.  In addition to the Chefs Club Memberships, they offer drop-in classes, birthday parties, camps, workshops and field trips.
