2019 Summer Camps

This summer, we are partnering with Simran and Stacie of A Little Yumminess to offer five sessions of youth camp. Many of our members have taken a class about Indian cuisine with Simran and Stacie at our 18th St. Classroom, and we're happy to introduce you and your youth to their longstanding summer programming, featuring some familiar faces of 18 Reasons' instructors.

Session 4: Bay Area Eats with Chef Annelies Zijderveld

Date and Time: July 15-19, 2019, 9 am-3 pm

The heart and soul of Bay Area food lies in the wonderful diversity of cultures of our community. Join us as we explore flavors from around the world by taking our inspiration from some of our favorite Bay Area chefs and restaurants. Each day we‘ll cook a full menu of savory and sweet dishes; explore global ingredients and flavor profiles; and practice cooking skills and techniques that help campers build confidence in the kitchen. In addition to plenty of hands-on cooking we’ll explore food traditions from around the world that have found a home right here in the Bay Area.

Annelies Zijderveld was born in Texas and has called the Bay area home for many years. She is the author of Steeped: Recipes Infused with Tea, a book for tea lovers about how to cook with tea. As a cooking teacher who teaches at 18 Reasons and Draeger’s in San Mateo, she believes cooking should be fun and flavorful, (and still can’t quite get over the amazing abundance of fresh produce and ingredients available to us in the Bay area). She also volunteers as a chef with Cooking Matters and delights in being a part of the wonderful work of #NoKidHungry in her local community. With a master’s in intercultural studies and a Mexican-Bolivian-Dutch heritage, she’s keen on finding the points of intersection around the table. Her food writing has appeared in Edible East Bay, allRecipes Magazine, The Kitchn, Paste Magazine, and Brit + Co. among other publications. She is the creator of the literary food blog, the food poet and you can follow her food antics on Instagram @anneliesz.
