Chopped : Dumplings

Much like the beloved TV show Chopped, Cooking Round the World’s “Chopped for Teens” is an opportunity for teens to try their hand at creating a recipe and making the dish from scratch. This one-day class will focus on dumplings. Teens will be asked to make dumplings with 3 ingredients they must use, a table of alternative ingredients and cookware, a time limit, and told to create something delicious. This hands-on super fun and creative culinary program is imaginative and ideal for teen chefs!

Teen Service Leadership
Instructor: San Ramon Staff

Experience plus education is a well-known formula for success. This is true for college applicants and those seeking career opportunities. However, for many teens, aspiring for success, it can be hard to find meaningful service opportunities in their community to pair with their education. The City of San Ramon Parks & Community Services Department has created the Teen Service and Leadership program to give teens in San Ramon meaningful opportunities, in their community, to help them grow and become future leaders. Participants will gain hands on experiences within the Parks & Community Services department learning to work as a team, meet deadlines, assist with community events, network with City Staff and learn important “soft skills” to interact with the public and co-workers. In addition to learned skills, this is a great item to add on resumes and college applications.

This nine week program will take place in the classroom, as well as include several outside of the classroom community service experiences on weekends and evenings to provide beneficial volunteer opportunities.

  • Volunteering at City Special Events
  • Attending a City Commission or City Advisory Board meeting (great way to learn how City Government works)
  • Forest Home Farms events & programs

The complete nine week calendar will be given to all participants at the first class meeting.
Ages: 12-17
