Young Chefs Academy and Food Network Magazine Partner to Host “Back to School” Open House Events

Children and Parents are invited for Hands-on Discovery at their local Young Chefs Academy

June 01, 2015 // // WACO, Texas – This fall, parents and their children will discover their creative culinary side during the Young Chefs Academy “Back to School” open house events.

Announced today, Young Chefs Academy is partnering with Food Network Magazine for the fourth year in a row to bring these programs to life. The partnership includes kids cooking events at select locations around the country in August and September.

“This year’s ‘Back to School’ open house events with Food Network Magazine will be our largest to date,” said Julie Burleson, the founder and CEO of Young Chefs Academy. “We will have more demonstrations, games and giveaways than ever before. Parents and children who attend should be prepared to join in the fun with our hands-on activities in our welcoming, creative environment.”

The interactive stations will allow children to create several back to school snack recipes, learn kitchen safety tips and enjoy samples from Young Chefs Academy, Food Network Magazine and participating advertisers.

Representatives from Young Chefs Academy will be on hand to discuss classes and curriculums, special events and programs with interested parents. Specific dates and times for each open house event vary per location. Dates will be announced at soon.

This announcement comes at a time of strategic growth for the organization. Answering the unmistakable call among parents and their kids for more time together in the kitchen, the bold plan pinpoints neighborhoods coast to coast for new Young Chefs Academy franchise locations.

The curriculum at Young Chefs Academy is updated regularly with fresh monthly themes and exciting new programs with a strong focus on building culinary skills. Events and classes are fueled by the mantra, “mise en place,” which translates to “everything in its place.” Tailored for young children discovering the kitchen in a KinderCooks® class, children in the Junior Chefs program and older students mastering concepts in the Senior Chefs group, there is a place and a lesson for every student to explore and grow through cooking. Each location also hosts birthdays and events for groups just looking for a taste of the Young Chefs experience.

Students from Young Chefs Academy have also made national television appearances on programs, including Dr. Oz and FOX’s MasterChef® Junior competition. The cooking school even offers a three-year MasterChef® cooking class where students complete monthly challenges and earn accolades marking their progress towards learning techniques needed for a lifetime of cooking.
