Calling all teens with culinary curiosity!

Here's a chance to get a taste of what day-to-day life in a restaurant looks and feels like.

*it's not like what you see on the TV show "The Bear". Promise.

Led by Chef Claud Beltran, this is an immersive cooking intensive designed to improve students' basic cooking skills and give them a taste of day-to-day life in a restaurant - in both the kitchen and front of house.

This 2 week course culminates in a Sunday Family Supper where students will cook for (and serve) their family members in a Pop-up restaurant concept that they will collectively create, using the kitchen and dining room of Bacchus’ Kitchen in Pasadena. 

Ages: 12-16

We’ll also be finalizing the design and menu (and name) of our Pop-up Restaurant for Sunday Supper.

Sunday Family Supper

Sunday July 28th    10am - TBD  

Students will arrive in the morning and get to work prepping for early supper service (start time TBA).

They will also prepare, decorate and set-up the dining room based on the Pop-up concept they’ve created. 


During service, students will prep specific dishes that they are assigned to, and when they’re not needed in the kitchen, they’ll be helping walk plates to the dining room, bus tables, and tend to guests as servers. 


Bacchus’ Kitchen and service staff will work alongside the students for Sunday Supper.
