Young Chefs Academy – Jeddah KSA

I recently attended an afternoon class at Young Chefs Academy with my 4-year-old daughter.  We arrived early and paid the 150SAR fee for the class that was to last 2 hours.  The children were escorted upstairs where they were sat at a table, and their lesson began.  The children cooked, colored, decorated a chef’s hat, and decorated their “take home” box.

I found the facility to be clean and well-organized.  My daughter enjoyed her time and made a chocolate chip cookie sandwich filled with Nutella.  My biggest complaint or concern was that we were told that the class would be offered in English and Arabic. This was not really the case.  The Arabic-speaking teacher talked a lot to the Arabic kids, but the Fillipina assistant just gave basic information to our English-speaking children.  I was also disappointed in the amount of cookie that each child got to bring home.  Each child was given a single serving and that was it.  For 150SAR, I expected it to take home at least 4-6 cookies.  Overall, it was a nice experience but for 150SAR per class, this will be something I do only occasionally.

The Young Chefs Academy does offer a variety of classes, based on the age of the child.  They offer a parent/tot class for kids around 18 months old and a variety of classes for children up to 12 years old.  They can also be booked for birthday parties.
