Faraday's Kitchen Store employs a variety of chef camp instructors for Chef Summer Camp, all of whom have experience in children's culinary instruction, nutrition and food safety. We have 2 chef instructors work each camp.
The Chef instructors for our 2022 Kids Chef Summer Camp program are Chef Katherine Haynes and Chef Jenna Rasmussen, with the help of returning Kitchen Assistant Sarah Kilgard.
Chef Katherine Haynes has been a professional chef for over 15 years, working as a private chef and caterer before shifting gears and going to the Four Seasons Hotel's Teaching Kitchen. There she excelled in working with the many pre-teen and teen groups that came in for instruction. Now she enjoys teaching her 6-year-old son how to cook, and is looking forward to the opportunity to help local children grow and learn with great food!
Chef Jenna Rasmussen can't wait to work with future chefs this summer! She has a degree in Art, one in Culinary Arts, and a third in Hotel and Restaurant Management, and worked in many restaurants before becoming a culinary arts teacher. Now that she has two children, she has become a full-time mom, but still finds time to teach and cater from time to time. She believes that food will always connect her to memories and the people she loves.
We are excited and blessed to have these two highly talented Chefs supporting our summer camps this year!
