Did you know we launched a new location: campusLA? Now we are bringing our amazing program to the West Coast.

Our culinary arts summer cooking camp is lots of fun!

We created this program when our own kids wanted to learn to cook and all that existed were programs that were too babyish; pre-made pizza crusts, hot plates, not even in a real kitchen…. and that’s still what is out there. If you find any other program then call them and ask about their kitchen, and you’ll find your way to us!

Why attend campusNYC or campusLA? When it comes to finding the right program, it’s all about the kitchen, the kitchen, the kitchen.


We combine top-notch culinary instruction with guided visits to specialty markets and stores, and event nights designed to show off the best of NYC.



Each day we create combine skill building and technique and each session does over 100 full recipes from scratch.



This program is open to students ages 12 - 17. All skill levels accepted. Sold out 7 years in a row!



Our kitchen is located in midtown Manhattan near Grand Central Station. It is a fully-loaded professional teaching kitchen with all pro equipment featuring high-end appliances, large stainless steel worktables, and separate areas for eating and prep, this kitchen rocks.



Once the cooking day is complete, our students experience NYC the best way possible… in person, going and doing everything we can imagine! Broadway shows, pizza tastings, shopping, and exploring all the best neighborhoods.
