Vicksburg, Miss – From June 3-7, 2024, the Vicksburg-Warren Career and Technical Center hosted a Free Culinary Arts Camp for 7th-10th graders. This camp aimed to spark interest in culinary arts among young students. Consequently, it offered a week of hands-on learning and creative cooking.

The camp operated daily from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM, Monday through Thursday, and from 8:30 AM to 1:00 PM on Friday. Each day was filled with interactive sessions. These sessions were specifically designed to build essential culinary skills and foster a love for cooking.

Throughout the week, the camp provided an enriching and immersive experience. Professional chefs and culinary instructors guided the students. As a result, they learned essential skills and techniques. Each day, students engaged in hands-on activities. They mastered knife skills, understood kitchen safety, explored various cooking methods, and experimented with recipes.

The grand finale of the camp took place on Friday. During this event, students showcased their newfound culinary talents to their parents and guardians. This special event featured a delightful array of Italian cuisine, all prepared by the students. The showcase highlighted the students’ ability to execute a variety of Italian dishes. It demonstrated their understanding of flavors, presentation, and the hard work they put in throughout the week.

Parents and guardians enjoyed a mouthwatering spread. It included classic Italian dishes such as handmade pasta, rich and savory sauces, and decadent desserts. This event allowed the students to display their skills. Furthermore, it gave them a platform to gain confidence and receive positive feedback from their loved ones.

Plans are already underway for next year’s camp. The organizers hope to expand the program to accommodate even more budding young chefs.
