Super Chef Masterclass
This is a special Super Chef program held at the Australian International School. Carefully designed by Super Chef Tim, this course is a deep-dive into the complexities of the kitchen with elements of pressure tests, competition and friendly rivalry!
Children will still explore a whole world of flavours and textures, celebrate diverse cultures and learn to cook starters, mains, desserts and cakes from scratch. This includes learning about healthy cooking using pure organic ingredients, reading labels and understanding food allergies. Campers will also discover fascinating food facts and history through daily workshops.
Our talented team of professional chefs teach not only how to prepare such tempting food, but also take great pains to explain why it is done in this way, ensuring a sound understanding.
"My kids love Super Chef at Camp Asia – they get to be creative, learn about healthy eating and have lots of fun in the kitchen all whilst learning a life skill."
Chef Tim Ong’s skills and enthusiasm have resulted in a number of notable achievements, starting with completing a business degree in Australia, holding his first head chef position at 23 years old, working with many Michelin-starred chefs and TV appearances on Asian Food Channel. He counts running Camp Asia’s Super Chef camps amongst these, having worked in the program since 2012.
