The virtual space has become a full-time resource for families here in Northern Virginia and beyond during the coronavirus era. From at-home learning to livestreamed, kid-friendly concerts, it seems as if there’s no limit to what we can do from home right now.
Cookology Live mirrors the organization’s in-person classes, teaching children professional culinary techniques through specific recipes that help broaden their understanding of cooking. This year’s summer cooking camps include a combination of live and recorded classes, continuing from Monday through Friday, with a maximum capacity of 25 attendees each.
As the pandemic lingers on, Cookology worked with three chefs to meticulously choose recipes that are easily teachable in a virtual environment and include grocery and pantry items that are easy to find right now. To kick off August, children ages 8 through 18 have the opportunity to learn how to curate family-style dinners like pasta salad and chicken pot pie, as well as practice gluten-free cooking and baking. Plus, parents are encouraged to attend sessions too, either working alongside their children or simply ensuring they are using safe practices while in the kitchen.
While currently classes are only available for kids ages 8 through 18, in the coming months, Cookology plans to release more camp dates for children ages 5 through 10.
