If you think your little one could be the next Jamie Oliver, hone their talent by sending them to Young Chefs Academy – a cooking school just for kids. Located in Desa Sri Hartamas, this candy-coloured cooking school offers three types of classes – Kinder Cooks for kids aged three to six, Junior Chefs for kids aged seven to 11, or Senior Chefs for kids aged 12 to 17. Classes are very much hands-on, with participants fully immersing themselves by measuring, decorating and more on their own. Kids’math skills are also given a boost when they calculate amounts needed for the recipe, and the academy helps instil the importance of kitchen safety and cleaning up. Instructors keep it fun by changing the themes monthly and sharing interesting cooking tips. At the end of class everyone gets to eat their tasty creations. Other than cooking classes, the school also hosts birthday parties, school field trips and holiday camps.
Kinder Cooks and Junior Chefs, RM380 per month for four sessions; Senior Chef, RM500 per month for four sessions.
