NEW THIS YEAR! Chef Eron loves to cook, but he also enjoys playing too, so why not do both? Play chess, ping pong, or golf (just to name a few) in the morning and learn some of the many aspects of cooking in the afternoon. Learning about sautéing and how to “checkmate” all in the same day couldn’t be more fun, so sign up for this diverse camp fast because you can only have so many cooks in the kitchen and so many holes-in-one!
