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, a handful of table setting, a pinch of menu planning, and laughter to taste. 

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?

Each visit to Young Chefs Academy is a new experience with fresh monthly themes and exciting new programs. Students sharpen their skills by employing the mantra, "Mise en Place" which, in the cooking world, translates into "Everything in its place."
 
At Young Chefs Academy, we take the fear, mystery, and the unknown out of cooking. In addition, each class and event incorporates supplemental subject matter which ties into each theme. Our staff of highly qualified teachers, chefs and nutritional experts carry out our mission to provide an interactive learning experience that gives children the opportunity to develop a life-long love for the culinary arts.

Chef Mike was an excellent teacher and very funny! Even my parents learned from him! "Hot pan, cold oil, food won't stick"!
