“Thanksgiving Feast” a 3 day cooking class will teach young chefs how to cook and prepare an entire Thanksgiving meal, in addition to teaching the joy of service, as the entire meal will be donated and served.

10 young chefs will be cooking up a feast to remember the 3 days leading up to Thanksgiving. Meeting each day from 9am-1pm at 825 Carlsbad Village Drive, they’ll prepare from scratch a traditional Thanksgiving meal: cranberry sauce, cornbread, green beans, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie, and of course, Turkey.
The class is created and led by Amanda from The Good Food Factory. “Thanksgiving is a favorite meal of mine to teach,” says Amanda.  “Each year we learn the traditions, history and food of the first Thanksgiving. In the past we’ve made enough food to feed 20 or more people and I always thought it would be great if we could also practice the tradition of giving and instilling in youth the joy of service.”

Every summer we bring joyful, educational, fun, silly, delicious COOKING CAMPS! This summer we are bringing back some favorites, while also bringing in some new ideas that are SURE to inspire your chef to cook good food, while creating memories to last a lifetime.
