To Make the Pork
In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch, garlic powder and ginger. Stir in orange juice until smooth. Stir in water and soy sauce; set aside.
In a large skillet, stir-fry pork in oil until juices run clear; remove to a platter and keep warm. In the same skillet, stir-fry peas until tender. Return pork to skillet. Stir orange juice mixture; add to skillet. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Gently stir in oranges.
To Make the Fried Rice
Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Beat eggs and water together in a bowl until smooth. Pour beaten egg mixture into the skillet, let it cook in the oil briefly to begin to firm, and then scramble lightly with a spoon until the eggs are cooked and shiny, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove cooked eggs to a plate.
Pour sesame oil and more vegetable oil into the hot pan. Sauté onion and garlic in oil until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes; add peas and carrots and cook until hot, 1 to 2 minutes more. Return cooked eggs to the pan.
Gradually add rice to the skillet, tossing chunks to break into individual grains and mixing with vegetables; cook and stir until the rice starts to turn a light brown color and is completely hot, 2 to 3 minutes.
Stir soy sauce, sugar, salt, and white pepper into the rice mixture; continue to cook and stir until the grains of rice are no longer sticking together, 2 to 3 minutes more. Remove pan from heat. Sprinkle green onion and cilantro over rice; toss to mix.
Serve pork on a bed of rice, top with additional green onion and white pepper.
My 11 year old daughter was born to cook and she had the time of her life!
She learned a lot of cooking skills, made a ton of great food and played games in the process.
They also gave her a very nice printed booklet with recipes, and made a wonderful YouTube video of the class.

I used them last week for my twins (boy/girl) 9th birthday party. It was fantastic!
The location, decorations, etc. were all top notch.
They handled all the details from start to finish (set up and clean up too!)

Best summer camp my 8 year old daughter ever had! She's comfortable and confident in the kitchen now,
either cracking eggs, or rolling cookie dough, or mixing on the side.
She is always so happy at the end of day talking about what they learned!
Our kids are 14 and 12, and enjoy cooking immensely.
This is a wonderful little school - easy-going and knowledgeable instructors,
inviting little kitchen, very clean and friendly.

I love to cook with my daughter.
She has taught both my husband and her friends how to cook these dishes.
Her confidence in the kitchen is astounding.
This is the ONLY camp that she has asked to repeat next year.
My 7 year old son has been begging for cooking lessons. He had a blast!
They made so much food, Dad enjoyed it for dinner and
he was so impressed that his son had made it all from scratch.
