Fast Food transforms to REAL food in this popular, all-American class. Each teen chef will begin by forming individual hamburger patties which will be cooked over a hot pan until a desired temp is reached. After loading up our burgers with sliced veggies, cheese and a variety of condiments, we mix together a fresh side dish: corn & pasta salad, filled with diced vegetables and tossed in a lightly seasoned dressing. Next we whip up cool and creamy shakes, the ultimate beverage to wash down a juicy burger. If that doesn’t sound sweet enough, we finish the class with moist chocolate cupcakes, hand decorated by your Teen chef!
*This class may accommodate Dairy-Free, Vegetarian and Gluten-Free dietary restrictions.
About Chef Isabelle:
Born in a small village in Quebec, Canada, Isabelle grew up with an early appreciation of where her food originated—she often foraged, hunted and fished in the area’s rugged wild for the family meal. Even as a young girl, she appreciated that use of the freshest, highest quality ingredients should be the standard in the preparation of good food. The French Canadian learned the art of butchery from her dad, the local butcher, and she furthered her knowledge through specialty courses at the local college. Her family has owned and operated restaurants, as well as a catering business, for 25 years, and Isabelle grew up learning the ins and outs of the industry and culinary arts.
Intermediate Kids’ Classes:
**This class is for kids ages 12-15 years old. Please note, we will be using real knives and kitchenburners. Please, only enroll your Kid Chef if they feel safe and confident handling these tools.
Is there an age requirement for this class?
These classes are designed for kids between the ages of 12-15 years old. This is a drop-off event. If you need to be in the room with your kid, please check out our Mini Chef & Me or Cook with Your Kid classes.
What does "Hands On" mean?
Hands-on changes from class to class, but it generally means getting your hands dirty. From rolling sushi to slicing and dicing, the class will be designed around the theme and age group of the class. We'll provide the tools, so don't fret! We will be using real knives as well as gas-burners. Please only sign your 9-12 year old up for an intermediate class if they are confident and comfortable using these adult tools. Most of the tools are what you'd have at home, as we try to encourage taking the lessons learned in the class and apply them at home.
Is there a Dress Code?
We strongly recommend wearing clothes appropriate for the kitchen. Closed-toed shoes, sleeves above your elbows, and a way to tie up longer hair are all strongly recommended.
What do if my child has a food sensitivity or restriction?
We've got substitutes prepared! Each time you purchase a ticket it will ask you to list your dietary restrictions. Please be as explicit as possible. If there's a class with a major component, ie. flour in pasta making, that might conflict with your sensitivity, we ask that you please consider another class that removes possible cross-contamination. Although we usually can accommodate nearly every allergy/diet restriction, there may be a chance we will not be able to for a particular class. If there is a concern, we will be sure to reach out to you and refund the ticket before the day of the class.
Is there a waiting list?
Unfortunately, our classes are on a first-come, first serve basis. If you're interested in joining our classes, we encourage you to sign up early!
Do you do private events?
We do! Please follow the link below which will show you which type of events we offer & how to schedule one: https://moonappetit.eventbrite.com
What's your refund policy?
We're happy to refund your ticket up to 24 hours before the event. This allows our chefs adequate time to prepare materials and ingredients for the class.
What if I have more questions?
Please reach out to us at the following email: EncinitasMarketing@Lazyacres.com
**Please note- this style of class does not include seating. Just like your kitchen at home, it’s easier to prep, chop, and slice while standing! Please wear comfortable shoes. Also, our kitchen tends to fluctuate occasionally in temperature. Please bring a jacket in the event the room gets a bit chilly. This class is subject to cancellation, please note it may be cancelled up to 24 hours prior to the class. In the event of a cancellation, a full refund will be offered!
