(Ages 6-11 & 12-16)

Far from being a chore or just ‘something parents do’, COOKING takes on a whole new meaning for children who join our Super Chef camp.

They will explore a whole new world of flavours and textures, and celebrate diverse cultures, from kitchen basics and recognizing ingredients, to preparing and cooking both everyday and more exotic starters, mains, desserts and cakes from scratch. This includes learning about healthy cooking using pure organic ingredients, reading labels and understanding food allergies.

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.

They will also discover fascinating food facts and history through daily workshops and masterclasses. The highlight of the week for you and your child is lunch with parents – cooked, naturally, by your child. Bon appetit!

"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."
