Believe in the Power of Learning and the Culinary Arts!
Established in April 2003, Young Chefs Academy offers cooking classes to children in a safe environment that encourages discovery and creativity. While learning food preparation skills is the main ingredient at YCA, each class adds a heap of kitchen safety, a scoop of etiquette, and more!
Julie Burleson, founder of YCA, believes this is the perfect recipe for showing children cooking is a lifelong skill that can be artistic, creative, and fun. The welcoming environment provides a "real" setting so that the students can take what they learn at YCA to their own homes. "The kitchen is the pulse of the home. where we learn about life and each other," says Burleson. Young Chefs Academy nourishes those values and gives kids an innovative environment to learn and thrive. In this busy world, what could be better?
