Taste the Adventure for Teens

Taste the Adventure for Teens

"The power of gathering is that it inspires us, delightfully, to be more hopeful, more joyful more thoughtful: in a word, more alive." Alice Waters

Maybe you’re looking for something out of the ordinary. Boutique. Active. And delicious. This is about you. The world. And finding your place in it. Since 2004, the C’est Si Bon! Cooking School has led small, intimate teen groups of 6-10 students, from 13-17 years of age, through a sensory-awakening, out of the box, educational and personally challenging taste adventures abroad and in the US. You’ll start life-long friendships, learn new travel skills, all while searching out the world’s tastes and how you can cook up your life.
 

"Travel is the only thing you can buy that will make you richer." Chef Erick Snover

​Our fun-filled curriculum encourages teens to expand their knowledge of travel, conversational skills in all languages, and become food fluent, while experiencing new paths on foot, bike, paddle board, horse and kayak.

Our mission is to empower you and how you relate and work with others, expand your knowledge of one of life’s most vital ingredients, working together. Learn the skills and confidence you will need to passionately develop, navigate, and fulfill your life mission and shape the world around you.

At the end of the program we hope you will leave us inspired to find your place at the table. Perhaps you’ll entertain a career in the culinary world; cooking and developing community at your table. Or maybe you’ll champion sustainable ag and raise bees and peaches. So pass the plate – share – and always nourish yourself with good people, rich land and joyous food.

Teens in Kauai

   NEW DATES July 25 - August 1 2021 $5500/ teen 

Take a walk with us through the bustle of Kauai's food scene; where the vendors, farmers and artisans cultivate something truly unique and engage all the senses. On a seven day stay, you’ll find yourself in good company among beekeepers, deeply rooted fishing community, and local fruit farmers, along with lively conversation about sustainable agriculture and how to lead  a life  of flavor. Here, the immersion into food culture will be made complete as you prepare fresh, farm-sourced ingredients to craft seasonal and wildly flavorful dishes under the masterful guidance of chefs, artisans, and local farmers. The abundance doesn’t have to end with a wide range of cooking techniques and plentiful meals—there will be time to journey into the green space of the lush island of Kauai; experience the thrill of a coastal horseback ride or a late afternoon snorkel. Beginning at the communal  table and extending to the natural landscapes that surround us, our trip offers the unique opportunity to blend travel and life experience with culinary skill development and plenty of adventures.

We hope you enjoy this week and leave us inspired to find your place at the table. Perhaps you’ll entertain a career in the culinary world, cooking and developing community at your table. Or maybe you’ll champion sustainable ag and raise bees and peaches. So pass the plate – share – and always nourish yourself with people, verdant land and good food.
