CLASSES

KIDS CAN LEARN TO COOK

Summer-camp food is usually the source of jokes and moans, but it's a safe bet that won't be the case here.

The Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach and A. Chefs Cooking Studio have been teaching children from 6 to 15 how to make their own gourmet creations - everything from crispy chicken to pink lemonade pie and more.

The second of three separate sessions starts Monday, but because reservations must be made at least two weeks in advance, that leaves just the July 7-11 event. Children ages 6 to 9 can attend from 9 a.m. to noon, and those ages 10 to 15 go from 1 to 4 p.m.

Classes are $225 for Cultural Center members and $275 for non-members and take place at A. Chefs Cooking Studio at 145 Hilden Road in Ponte Vedra Beach. For information, call (904) 280-0614.
