TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - Kids chopped, diced, and macerated the idea of the ‘typical’ summer camp by attending one focused on learning basic and advanced methods of preparing food.
As part of Tyler Junior College’s summer camp series, students ages 13 to 18-years-old participated in a week-long culinary arts cooking camp. Future chefs got hands-on experience in TJC’s state-of-the-art facility and commercial kitchen.
Instructor Larry Matson said the teenagers are at a perfect age to learn to develop a love of cooking.
“It’s probably about that time. I think it’s important for people to know start learning some of the basics," Larry Matson, head of Culinary Arts at TJC. “And so to me, it’s very important to share, and so this is one of the ways to share our knowledge our craft that we do.”
Thursday’s lesson consisted of making a strawberry shortcake with a whipped cream topping.
