Junior Chefs Academy
Kids ages 11 to 18 can participate in our Crème de la Crème Junior Chefs Academy working alongside our talented pastry chefs.

From the moment of arrival, we welcome kids to The Ritz-Carlton by encouraging them to explore the sights and sounds of the hotel and its environment. Guided by playfulness and a sense of wonder, Ritz Kids delights and engages your children to interact with their surroundings in a fresh and exciting way, while introducing them to the four important pillars of Ritz Kids discovery: Water, Land, Environmental Responsibility and Culture.

We invite you to the Junior Chefs Academy at The Ritz-Carlton New York, Westchester. Junior chefs ages 11-18 can participate in a series of exclusive seasonal baking workshops with talented Ritz-Carlton pastry chefs. The class will be held in the pastry kitchen of the hotel for a maximum of 8 students per workshop. Junior chefs will learn everything from kitchen safety to baking techniques.

Each student will receive a chef’s apron, chef’s hat and set of baking tools to use during the class. Each class is $125 per student.
