This summer, children 7 and older can learn from chef Anthony Goncalves in the kitchen at 42, the restaurant and events space that sits atop the towering Ritz-Carlton in White Plains. Registration costs begin at $275 per camper.
The kids’ cooking camp is run by Angela Bastone-Goncalves, a New York State certified teacher. She plans to transform the restaurant’s kitchen into a learning lab, with several rotating small-group stations, where campers will learn basic food prep skills, how to read and follow a recipe, measure and mixing and the importance of kitchen safety, also trying their hand at professional appliances like a blast freezer and ravioli maker.More for budding chefs: Young foodies from Westchester break into blogging
On Wednesdays, the young chefs will visit the White Plains Outdoor Farmers’ Market on Court Street to choose fresh produce for their culinary activities. And on the last day of camp, parents will find lunch prepared for them by their children from a menu the students created.
Children 10 and older can choose between two one-week sessions, June 29 through July 3 and July 6 through 10. Monday through Thursday, camp will run from 9:00 a.m. to noon. On Friday, it will run from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Children ages 7 to 9 will be taught from 9 a.m. to noon each day, August 3 through 7.
