Claremont Chefs Academy is a culinary school that offers cooking classes for kids as young as 3 years old to adults. Our hands-on classes allow our students to learn proper culinary trades such as knife skills, food safety, etiquette, to science, social, and math skills in a fun and safe environment. Students will enjoy what they make at the end of class as well as receive the recipes to take home. We also offer workshops, scout events, team building events, private adult parties, special needs classes, and more .
Planning a Birthday or Special event? We host parties here for kids and adults. Our parties are very interactive and tons of fun. All students will learn how to make a meal from scratch such as our ever-popular Pizza Party.
COVID-19 UPDATE 5/21
Hello to all our students and parents! It has been a long time since we have been able to cook with you but it looks like we will be able to start our Summer camps by following the LA County Health Officer Guidelines similar to essential businesses offering Child Care:
Article 13 Part v "Childcare facilities providing services that enable employees exempted in this Order to work as permitted. To the extent possible, childcare facilities must operate under the following mandatory conditions: (1) Childcare must be carried out in stable groups of 10 or fewer (“stable” means the same 10 or fewer children are in the same group each day); (2) Children shall not change from one group to another; (3) If more than one group of children is cared for at once facility, each group shall be in a separate room. Groups shall not mix with each other; (4) Childcare providers shall remain solely with one group of children." Click HERE for full report
We have taken this pandemic very seriously and want to see the steady decline in COVID 19 cases. When we resume our classes, we will implement the following new safety policies:
- We will continue to wash hands upon arrival and during the class as needed.
-All students and chefs must wear face masks at all times.
-To test for possible fever, we will thermal scan each student prior to entering the kitchen.
-We will reduce the class sizes to help with social distancing. We will also change table configurations to allow more spacing.
-To also help reduce the concentration of people in our shop, parents are no longer allowed to stay and watch the class. Drop off only.
-Parents will be required to wait for their child(ren) in the outside atrium when it is time to pick them up.
-Please do not attend or send any children to class if they have any signs of illness such as cough, runny nose, sneezing, etc.
-All foods prepared at the shop must be consumed at the shop. We are not able to send any foods home.
We know this may take away from how we ran our classes before but this will only be a temporary situation. Once thing have gotten back to normal, we will reduce these requirements.
Unfortunately will not be able to offer Birthday Parties and Adult classes until further notice.
Till then stay safe, stay healthy!
