We had so much fun cooking and traveling the world with our tummies last summer that we’re doing it again! Registration for our 2014 A Little Yumminess Around the World is now live. Space is limited and tickets are going fast, so if you’re interested it’s a really great idea to sign up right away. Read on for more details or jump over to our summer camp page for the registration links. And if your little ones can’t join us this summer, we also have some other exciting family and kids’ programs in the works…. so please stay tuned!
This summer in addition to cooking, eating, tasting and learning about cuisines of the world with our campers — everything from Indian paranthas, Argentinian empanadas to Thai curries — we are thrilled to announce a partnership with a wonderful children’s writing teacher named Tessa White who will lead two writing-focused days each camp week. We found that our kids had so much enthusiasm for what they were learning about, and so much to say, that we thought that they would love the chance to wash their hands, pick up a pen and write about their experience. Tessa does wonderfully imaginative projects in her afterschool program called The Writing Club and we absolutely can’t wait for the party and reading by campers which will conclude the fun each week on the Friday of each session. (Please take note: we had to increase the age of campers by a year –entering 2nd through 4th grades in fall 2014– to make sure the writing component would work well.)
We’re totally excited about the venues this year, too. First we’re taking over the kitchen at Marin Preparatory School in the Castro and then we’re back at one of our favorite foodie places in all of SF, 18 Reasons:
- Session I (June 16-20 / 9am-1:30pm): Marin Preparatory School, 117 Diamond Street / SF
- Session II (June 23-27 / 9am-1:30pm): 18 Reasons, 3674 18th Street / SF

As we’ve been planning all the details over the past several months we keep finding ourselves saying, “Boy, we wish there had been a camp like this when we were kids!”
