UK132.6-1 Rest of World15.832 Total260.59.7 “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” What’s particularly concerning about these figures is that growth in the UK – the group’s largest market – was negative. Fevertree said that “the wider retail environment in the UK experienced a challenging Christmas with the mixer category not immune from the weak consumer confidence and corresponding slowdown in spending.” It also advised that it expects trading conditions in the UK to remain challenging in the first half of 2020.On the positive side, however, growth in the US was strong.Earnings decreaseFinally, the company advised that profit margins have ended the year behind management’s expectations and that it expects 2019 earnings to decline by around 5% compared to 2018.US growth aside, it’s a pretty ugly update, in my view. Given that the stock had a high valuation, I’m not really surprised that investors have bailed.What now?Would I buy Fevertree Drinks shares now after a fall of 25%?Crunching the numbers, the answer is no. In 2018, Fevertree generated earnings per share of 53.2p. So if we reduce this by 5%, we get a figure of 50.5p for expected 2019 earnings. At the current share price of 1,520p, that equates to a trailing P/E ratio of about 30. If the company was still generating strong earnings growth, I could stomach that valuation. However, given that earnings are expected to fall, I see it as expensive.I also remain concerned about rising competition. This is an issue I’ve been warning investors about for years now. Not only have major soft drinks names such as Coca-Cola and Schweppes upped their game in the mixer space recently, but supermarkets such as Waitrose and Co-op have got in on the action by releasing their own premium mixers.All things considered, I’m going to leave Fevertree shares alone for now. When investing for growth, I prefer to pick companies that have strong momentum. Only a few years ago, premium mixer drinks company Fevertree Drinks (LSE: FEVR) was the growth stock that everyone wanted to own. Just look at the extraordinary rise in Fevertree’s share price between January 2017 and September 2018 – it surged over 250%.Today however, investor sentiment towards Fevertree shares is very different. The shares have been underperforming for a while now, and this morning, they’ve crashed around 25%. Here, I’ll look at why the shares have plummeted today, and explain whether I’d buy the stock now.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Revenue downgradeThe reason that Fevertree’s share price has crashed today is that the company has released a disappointing year-end trading update, ahead of its preliminary results that will be issued in March.In the update, Fevertree advised that group revenue is now expected to £260.5m, which represents growth of around 10% on last year. This figure is below the board’s expectations – in August FEVR advised that it was expecting full-year revenue of £266m to £268m. It’s also below the consensus analyst forecast of £267m (analysts were expecting top-line growth of 12.5%), which explains why the shares have been hammered.UK sales declineFevertree also provided a breakdown of its growth on a geographic basis, which I’ve summarised below: Image source: Getty Images.

Why the Pan American Silver share price crashed this week

Enter Your Email Address Image source: Getty Images. It’s been a bumpy ride for the Pan American Silver (NASDAQ: PAAS) share price since the beginning of 2021. Trading has been choppy as conflicting signals concerning the Covid-19 fight have caused silver prices to shake.Movements in silver have certainly been wilder than gold so far this year. This is because the grey metal plays an important role as both investment and industrial metal. Thus silver prices have been highly sensitive to signals concerning the fight against Covid-19 and the global economic recovery.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The price has been more robust, above $27 per ounce, in recent sessions. But the Pan American Silver share price hasn’t fared anywhere near as well. In fact, it plummeted following the release of first-quarter numbers on Thursday. At $29.82 per share, the company closed yesterday at its cheapest since 31 March, falling 11% on the day. However, it has recovered some ground since.Results miss expectationsA falling stock price is hardly a shock when a company releases worse-than-expected financials. But Pan American Silver, the world’s second-largest primary silver producer, missed market predictions by quite a sizeable margin.Adjusted earnings per share at the business — which operates a string of precious metals mines across Mexico, Peru, Canada, Argentina, Bolivia and Guatemala — clocked in at 18 cents for the three months to March. This was up 80% year-on-year. But this fell well short of analyst forecasts of around 30 cents.Revenues at Pan American Silver, while up 2.7% year-on-year at $368.1m, were adversely impacted by an inventory build up in quarter one. The company’s realised average silver price for the period rose by a much more impressive 60.1% from the corresponding 2020 period. This clocked in at $26.41 per ounce. Realised gold prices meanwhile averaged $1,788 an ounce, up 13.2% year-on-year.Pan American Silver downgrades forecastsThose disappointing sales and earnings results aren’t the only downward drivers of Pan American Silver’s share price however. The mining giant also slipped after it downgraded production forecasts for the full year.Pan American Silver now expects to produce between 20.5m and 22m ounces in 2021. This is down from the targeted 22.5m-24m ounces the company had previously earmarked. More happily, the business left its gold output expectations unchanged.Production problemsAt its La Colorada mine in Mexico, Pan American Silver suffered from “lower than originally anticipated workforce deployments” in the first quarter, due to coronavirus conditions in the region. Production has also been affected by a blockage that occurred during commissioning of a ventilation project.La Colorada production in 2021 is expected to come in 20-25% shy of forecasts as a result of these problems. On top of this, output at its Manantial Espejo project in Argentina is predicted to come in between 8-10% short of earlier predictions, again because of coronavirus-related workforce shortfalls.Chief executive Michael Steinmann said: “Quarter one was a challenging quarter, as the Covid-19 pandemic continues to grip Latin America, impacting our workforce, communities and operations.” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Foto de Chris Gannon.[Episcopal News Service] Si Dios está en todas partes, una imagen laminada a la que se ha llamado Jesús Plano [Flat Jesus, en inglés] está haciendo lo más que puede para probarlo.Simplemente, visite su página de Facebook y lo encontrará viajando en un globo aerostático con los episcopales de Virginia, acompañando viajes de misión a la República Dominicana y a Kenia, viendo la película Mi villano favorito 2 [Despicable Me 2], ayudando con sermones (¿eso es trampa?), relajándose en la playa y sirviéndole de acomodo a un perro. Incluso pasa el rato con el mucho más alto Flat Andy, hecho a la imagen del obispo Andy Doyle de la Diócesis Episcopal de Texas.Este Jesús Plano es un muñeco de papel coloreado a mano que viaja por el mundo este verano como cortesía de la iglesia episcopal de Santiago Apóstol [St. James] en Birmingham, Michigan. El primer personaje “plano” lo fue Flat Stanley, protagonista de un libro de Jeff Brown en el cual un niño tiene extraordinarias aventuras luego de despertarse un día y descubrirse aplanado con sólo media pulgada de espesor. En la actualidad, los escolares suelen escribir cartas a amigos y familiares acompañadas por imágenes de Flat Stanley, quien ofrece divertidas lecciones de geografía al tomar fotos de otros colegas de papel que posan en diversas localidades. Existe incluso un Proyecto Flat Stanley como programa de aplicación.Stanley inspiró a otros personajes “planos”, tales como Flat Andy. Chris Gannon, el creador y distribuidor de Flat Jesus y ministro de jóvenes y adultos en la iglesia de Santiago Apóstol, vio algo acerca de Jesús Plano en Internet y pensó: “Caramba, qué manera tan divertida de mantener a nuestra congregación conectada durante el verano”.Tablilla de anuncios en la iglesia episcopal de Santiago Apóstol Birmingham, Michigan, registra los viajes de Jesús Plano. Foto de Chris GannonGannon creó un patrón y les pidió a los niños de la parroquia que colorearan unas pocas docenas y los distribuyeran entre los feligreses para que lo llevaran consigo en las vacaciones y enviaran fotos. “Creo que estaban un poco dudosos al principio”, dijo Gannon.Pero un miembro de la junta parroquial llevó a Jesús a Alemania y colgó fotos en la Red. Una familia informó desde una vacación multigeneracional en Alabama. “Las fotos eran sencillamente inapreciables” —entre ellas la del Jesús Plano enterrado en la arena de la playa—, dijo Gannon. La laminación le permitió caminar sobre el agua en varios lugares.La noticia se propagó. Personas ajenas a la iglesia de Santiago empezaron a solicitar el Jesús Plano —alrededor de seis por día, en la actualidad— y compartían fotos y conversaciones acerca de él en la página de Facebook. Una desbordada tablilla de noticias en la iglesia marca sus viajes. Del 17 de junio al 18 de julio, 114 de estas imágenes de Jesús han salido por la puerta.Él, que no se deja atrapar por la rutina, luce varias túnicas diferentes. “Las tenemos con mensajes de paz. Las tenemos al estilo de Larry Boy de BeggieTales”, dijo Gannon. Han creado túnicas especiales para los diferentes estados donde aún no le han invitado —por ejemplo, la primera persona de Vermont que pida un Jesús Plano recibirá uno anunciando Whirled Peace, su sabor preferido de Ben and Jerry. Y a él sí le gusta el helado, al menos según un comentario en el blog de la Rda. Elizabeth Kaeton, en el cual él (Jesús) y su chofer clerical discuten temas relacionados tanto con la justicia como sobre el conteo de calorías.“Sabes, es bueno que estos tengan sólo 170 calorías, o rápidamente dejaría de ser ‘Jesús Plano’ para convertirme en ‘Jesús Gordo’”, dice después de un cono de helado digno de celebración.Kaeton, que se cuenta entre los primeros en pedir un Jesús Plano realzó su semblanza con los comentarios que ha puesto en su blog acerca de él, dijo Gannon. “Creo que ella probablemente tiene un gran motivación por la cual esto ha crecido tanto y ha llegado tan lejos”.Pero esos momentos del “Jesús Gordo”, para no mencionar una foto de Facebook que lo representa como un vacacionista tomándose una cerveza en la playa, a menudo la hacen temer que alguien objete el proyecto del Jesús Plano. Hasta ahora, dijo Gannon, nadie lo ha hecho.“Esos son los momentos en que uno teme que alguien lo vea como herético o demasiado paródico”, explicó Kaeton. “Creo que eso hace a Jesús más accesible”.Y, lejos de ser una tontería, añadió, “creo que tomamos la evangelización con mucha seriedad. Creo simplemente que ésta es una manera perfecta de empezar una conversación. La gente que por lo general no habla de Jesús… que no hablarían de lo que Jesús creía respecto a pasar un día juntos como una familia, lo están haciendo, y sencillamente creo que eso es maravilloso”.Jesús hace un poco de activismo comunitario con Jessie Cragg de la iglesia episcopal de La Trinidad [Trinity Episcopal Church] en Kirksville, Misurí. Foto de María EvansLa Dra. María Evans, directora del laboratorio médico en un hospital en Kirksville, Misurí, pidió un Jesús Plano después de leer al respecto en el blog de Kaeton, e inmediatamente lo llevó consigo para echar una mano en el programa Alimento para Niños [food for Kids] de esa ciudad.A un gran porcentaje de los niños del condado les sirven almuerzo escolar gratis o a precios reducidos, explicó ella. “Eso significa que durante el verano puede que se queden sin almorzar. Varias iglesias en la ciudad se han asociado para ofrecer un programa de almuerzo de verano, donde todos los que acuden a uno de los parques de la ciudad pueden obtener un almuerzo nutritivo, y eso incluye a los adultos que acompañan a los niños. De manera que el Jesús Plano estuvo allí y los niños creyeron que era algo divertido.Más tarde, él asistió a una eucaristía en un hogar de ancianos y a un estudio bíblico sobre la historia de María y Marta.“Se mantuvo callado”, dijo Evans “me figuro que si hubiera tenido alguna objeción a la manera en que estábamos interpretándolo [el pasaje bíblico] hubiera dicho algo”.Tocante a cuánto habla el Jesús Plano, observó Gannon, depende de quién esté hablando”.“Él es ecuménico”, apuntó ella. Fue hasta Indiana para asistir al evento trienal de la juventud de la Iglesia Presbiteriana y también visitó una escuela bíblica de vacaciones presbiteriana.Evans tiene planes de llevar su Jesús Plano a una escuela bíblica de vacaciones así como al culto de su iglesia, la iglesia episcopal de La Trinidad [Trinity Episcopal Church] en Kirksville.“Espero hablar con una pareja de los jóvenes de la iglesia a ver si quieren tomar prestado a Jesús Plano por un tiempo.”Creaciones del campamento Chicago. Foto de Chris GannonElla espera que el Jesús Plano le dé a los más jóvenes de la iglesia una mayor perspectiva del mundo. “Por crecer en un pueblo pequeño, el mundo era muy insular para mí. Me resultaba difícil imaginar lugares fuera de los pequeños pueblos del nordeste de Misurí… Un proyecto como éste creo que conecta a estos jóvenes con un mundo mucho más amplio: en este caso en particular, el mundo mucho más amplio de la Iglesia Episcopal”.“Incluso si es una especie de tontería, cualquier cosa que hagamos en favor de los jóvenes que amplíe su mundo y el mundo de la Iglesia va a ayudarles cuando se hagan adultos y aprendan a vivir a la altura del Pacto Bautismal, a ver a Cristo en todo ser humano”, apuntó.En un correo electrónico, Kaeton dijo que ella ha llevado al Jesús Plano “adondequiera” y me he quedado sorprendida por cuán rápidamente lo reconocían.“A los pacientes de mi hospicio que son cristianos les encantó que lo llevara conmigo cuando los fui a visitar. Y también lo llevé a unas instalaciones especializadas donde muchos de mis pacientes también padecen de mal de Alzheimer y demencia senil”, dijo Kaeton, sacerdote episcopal y capellán de hospicio en Delaware.“La mayoría de las veces, ni siquiera tengo que presentarlo. ‘Oh, mira’, dicen ‘¡es Jesús! Con mucha frecuencia, ésas son más palabras que toda las que han dicho en semanas. Es interesante que el ‘Jesús Plano’ no luce exactamente como las imágenes ‘tradicionales’, pero lo reconocen inmediatamente. También me resulta profundamente conmovedor que ellos reconozcan al ‘Jesús Plano’, pero que ya no reconozcan a sus cónyuges, hijos o nietos”.El obispo Gladstone B. (Skip) Adams III, de Nueva York Central, visitó a los Mets de Binghamton para lanzar la primera bola. El Jesús Plano estaba allí para darle la bienvenida al obispo en el juego junto con más de 140 episcopales del distrito de Binghamton. Foto de Chris GannonLo mismo sucede en la iglesia, a lo largo del paseo peatonal de Rehoboth Beach y en los restaurantes locales. “Estoy asombrada de que nadie —ni uno solo— pregunte ‘¿qué es eso, o quién es?’, pueden ser un poquito cautos y preguntar ‘¿eso es lo que yo creo que es?’, pero la mayoría exclama con entusiasmo y agrado: ‘¡aguarda! ¿Es quien yo creo que es? Es… Jesús?’”.“Creo que es una forma maravillosa de mantener a la congregación conectada con sus comunidades de fe durante los meses de vacaciones del verano”, dijo ella y añadió. “Me encanta el ‘Jesús Plano’ porque es una manera fácil de iniciar una conversación acerca de Jesús. En mi experiencia, la mayoría de los cristianos (bueno, digamos, la mayoría de los episcopales) no tiene ningún problema en hablar de Dios o del Espíritu, pero se sienten cortados al hablar de Jesús, aunque se identifiquen como cristianos. Puede haber innumerables razones para ello, pero sospecho que hay un fuerte impulso a evitar alguna asociación con los grupos de fundamentalistas cristianos cuya cristología es estrecha y rígida y moralista.“Creo que el ‘Jesús Plano’ nos ayuda a reclamar a Jesús de los que han secuestrado su imagen y sus enseñanzas. Me da la oportunidad de enseñar algo acerca de su amor incondicional y del don del perdón y de la gracia que son inmerecidos y gratuitos. También me permite hablar del ‘profundo gozo que los apóstoles conocieron primero’. Esos son mensajes para personas que están hambrientas y sedientas de Buenas Nuevas, pero especialmente para los pacientes de hospicios y sus familias”.Si bien todo el mundo ha reconocido la figura recortada como Jesús, hizo notar Kaeton. “Me he encontrado a asiáticos y afroamericanos e hispanos que me han dicho con un tono de tristeza, ‘Él no se parece a mí’ o ‘esa no es la forma en que imagino a Jesús’. También me he encontrado con algunas mujeres que son cristianas feministas que dicen: ‘Jesús para mí es Sofía [la Sabiduría]’. He tenido algunas conversaciones estupendas con varias gentes acerca de la necesidad de la Iglesia de una cristología más amplia que creo que la Iglesia institucional debe escuchar”.El Jesús Plano se interesa sin duda tanto en los santos del pasado como en los del presente. Recientemente posó con la serie recién publicada de Locura de Cuaresma para 2014, dijo Gannon.El Rdo. Tim Schenck, rector de la iglesia episcopal de San Juan Evangelista [St. John the Evangelist] en Hingham, Massachusetts, y creador de la competencia anual de santos que se inspira en la Locura de Marzo del baloncesto, escribió a ENS que él no “había encontrado personalmente al Jesús Plano”.“Si bien, a primera vista, la idea del Jesús Plano es más bien unidimensional, cualquier cosa que haga que la gente hable de Jesús es fantástica”, afirmó. “Tal vez hemos estado citándole mal todos estos años. En lugar de decir, ‘sígueme’ tal vez él realmente dijo ‘apláname’. Me encanta que se interese en la Locura de Cuaresma del año próximo y, quién sabe, tal vez no falta tanto para los Santos Planos.Para Evans, todo depende de encontrar medios creativos de propagar las Buenas Nuevas. Al igual que el Jesús Plano, dijo ella, “la Locura de Cuaresma ha sido una de esas cosas que a la gente le gusta. ¿Esto es auténtica evangelización? Sí. Yo creo que lo es.Para solicitar un Jesús Plano, diríjase a Chris Gannon en [email protected]– Sharon Sheridan es corresponsal de ENS.

Puerto Rico strike: Twelve days rattle the empire

first_imgThousands crowded in front of the governor’s mansion — La Fortaleza — as riot cops, armed to the teeth, locked shields. “The Fortress” was under siege. Here and there, the night sky was aglow with the amber light of distant flames. For 12 days, protesters stormed barricades and braved fusillades of rubber bullets, tear gas and flash grenades. Why? Their demand was the immediate abdication of the governor of Puerto Rico, Ricardo Rosselló. San Juan, Puerto Rico, July 23 protestThis latest conflagration was sparked by the release of confidential text messages between the governor and his allies. His messages were loaded with homophobic and sexist language and callous “jokes” about the rising death toll following Hurricane Maria. That was the last straw.Repeated attempts were made to storm the governor’s mansion, and crowds quickly grew from thousands to hundreds of thousands. Rosselló attempted reconciliation, vowing to stay in office but forgoing a reelection campaign. It was not enough.On July 22, after 10 days of agitation, Puerto Ricans launched a general strike.Millions shut down the major highway running through San Juan. Two days later, Rosselló announced his resignation. How were the people of Puerto Rico able to unseat the governor in less than a fortnight? And what drove them?Corporate media have focused on Rosselló, and his despicable comments, out of convenience. Attributing the blame for the current upheaval to one man’s disgusting lack of character is convenient for corporate interests. It obscures the role of finance capital in spurring the pain and anger of the Puerto Rican people. Any accurate recounting of the current crisis must begin at least as far back as 2016.Underpinnings of the current uprisingThe Puerto Rico Management, Oversight and Economic Stability Act, or PROMESA (promise), was enacted in 2016. PROMESA was designed by U.S. federal law to restructure the debt acquired by the Puerto Rican government over the last several decades. The plan was simple: unrelenting austerity. The unelected PROMESA board members rolled out a plan of crushing budget cuts. Almost 200 schools were closed, pension and health care spending was reduced, and the hourly minimum wage for workers under the age of 25 was reduced to a paltry $4.25 (compared to $7.25 on the mainland). It was clear what was being promised — and delivered — to the Puerto Rican people: humiliation piled on top of indignity.No peoples could endure such degradation indefinitely, nor could they survive such hardship. Under these conditions, rebellion was inevitable.What’s worse is that Puerto Rico’s debt crisis was entirely due to the machinations of Wall Street. The Puerto Rican economy was dealt a fatal blow when the manufacturing sector pulled out of the island in pursuit of lower wages. Banks swept in and bought Puerto Rican government bonds which were sold to cover budget shortfalls and provide essential services to the people.But the economy never recovered and the debt continued to pile up. This was no concern of Wall Street. U.S. law mandates that its colonial property cannot declare bankruptcy the way mainland municipalities can. Instead, federal law forces Puerto Rico to service its debt obligations before paying for essential services. A horrible policy for the people, but excellent for bond traders.On Aug. 31, 2016, the capitalist class launched a conference at the Condado Plaza Hilton hotel to celebrate their fiscal coup d’état. The people of Puerto Rico used the occasion to express their discontent. As WW reported at the time: “After learning, on the eve of the protest, that police planned to prevent the demonstrators from arriving, protesters began reaching the site before dawn that day and surrounded all entrances to the hotel.“The protesters were determined to prevent the conference at any cost … demonstrators blocked the avenue leading to the hotel. Although it was not a massive demonstration, the demonstrators did have enough presence to successfully block the way for those trying to get to the conference.“Protesters sat in the middle of the avenue and built barricades with stones. They surrounded those who tried to attend the conference and tried to discourage them. Many people turned around. Demonstrators also threw water at some people to discourage them from participating. “Only a massive police presence — some demonstrators said it was triple their own number — allowed a few people to enter. …  [T]he tactics were so successful that fewer than 200 people attended the business meeting, according to media reports.” (tinyurl.com/yy56jgse)This was a dress rehearsal for last week’s insurrection.San Juan Puerto Rico, July 19 march.Repression breeds resistancePhysical devastation soon followed financial ruin. In the fall of 2017, Hurricanes Irma and Maria struck Puerto Rico. Although the casualty figures were initially downplayed, the rising numbers of dead and missing became too great to hide. A 2018 study in the New England Journal of Medicine calculated the total death toll at an overwhelming 4,645 people.The hurricane response from the U.S. was callous. While states like Texas and Florida received over $100 million in the first two weeks following severe hurricanes in those states, the U.S. forced Puerto Rico to make do with just $9 million in the same time frame.At every stage, the destruction of Puerto Rican life and economic stability has been planned and exacerbated by the U.S. government.So what did Rosselló’s text messages really show? Beyond his bigotry and callousness, it was revealed to the world that money — intended to assist the recovery after Hurricane Maria — was diverted to corporate lawyers and consultants. Confidential information about government contracts was shared with Rosselló’s friends in the private sector. And just three days before the leaks, Rosselló’s former secretary of education was arrested for money laundering.Secretary Julia Keleher, a Republican from Philadelphia, was a key figure in executing PROMESA’s brutal education cuts. Even schools for the disabled were not safe from her policy of unforgiving austerity.The people of Puerto Rico were not just beset by sexism and homophobia, but with predatory debt and brutal austerity, climate disaster and disaster capitalism, unfeeling imperialism and humiliating colonialism. The flames of discontent had been smoldering for years before they burst forth to engulf the colonial administration of the island.The struggle in Puerto Rico is a struggle against imperialism, and it is not likely to end now that Rosselló has resigned. In waging this struggle, the Puerto Rican people have set an example for all who struggle against oppression. The power of the people is extraordinary, and when concentrated, no empire can resist its force.This article, by an Afro-Puerto Rican activist, is based on a talk at the July 25 Workers World Party meeting in New York City that addressed the theme “Fighting against Racism and for National Sovereignty.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Cooking Camp Introduces New Teen Iron Chef Series

first_imgPersonal Living Cooking Camp Introduces New Teen Iron Chef Series From STAFF REPORTS Published on Wednesday, May 1, 2013 | 1:27 pm EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS In recent years, it has been exceedingly difficult for parents to get their children engaged in activities that pry them away from their computer screens, Ipads and video games. Programs such as Summer Art Academy’s Cooking Camp allow children and teenagers to gain new life skills while thoroughly enjoying the process in a tasty week of Cooking this summer.The Cooking Camp is a program that resonates with many kids as it creates a very hands-on learning environment that will prove beneficial to them in future years. Experienced chefs work with students by teaching classic French culinary techniques and allowing them to create their own cuisine inspired by various parts of the globe. In addition, students learn about nutritional values, kitchen safety and sanitation.New for teenagers this year, Allen is bringing forth new “Iron Chef” style sessions to add a little spice to the Camp’s classes as an exciting challenge for students. Similar to the Food Network’s show, students will be provided mandatory ingredients that they will have to use to create a dish. Chefs will help walk the students through the process while still allowing the student to take charge in exploring their creative possibilities.The chefs that conduct the classes are Le Cordon Bleu trained and teach students ages seven to 17 with new themes each week such as The 50’s Diner, Cartoon Cookery and Chocolate Extravaganza. One instructor is available for every five students with each class going no larger than 26 students. The smaller class size allow each student to receive assistance when needed and ensure a safe environment. Students are given original recipes for each class and can bring their dishes home to show off their work to the family. Students can even recreate their favorite dishes at home as all the recipes are posted online at the beginning of every week for the kids to begin their own Culinary School style notebook.The Cooking Camp was first established in 2005, as a pilot program by Executive Chef Chris Allen, but it took off due to rave feedback from both parents and students alike. “Often there are children that have food dislikes and have strong emotions towards a specific food. Tomatoes for example, it’s amazing to see their eyes open in surprise because they can’t believe it’s so good, and knowing they actually created something delicious that they like with tomatoes, it makes it so much better,” said Allen.Allen was a full-time faculty member at the Le Cordon Bleu in Pasadena and has had years of success as a chef from owning his own catering company, working as a personal chef and being a special demonstration Chef for the Friends of Robinson’s Garden.Parents notice substantial changes in their child after each lesson as their food palate is broadened and express a newly acquired passion for cooking. It is the Cooking Camp’s ability to enrich children’s lives that led to its selection as the 2012 Best of Pasadena Award in the Culinary Schools category by the Pasadena Awards Program.The summer program gives kids and young teenagers the chance to be around those their age while learning to cook with finesse well beyond their years. Many students eagerly await the summer to return to the camp once again in hopes to create something that both looks and tastes amazing. It is experiences such as those provided at Cooking Camp that stay with a child throughout their lifetime.Cooking Camp is located in Woodland Hills, La Cañada and North Hollywood. Classes are available for morning classes, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., and afternoon classes from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. beginning June 17 to August 9.For more information, visit http://summerartacademy.com/CookingCamp/index.html or call (866) 507-COOK.
