Kids Cook! will open the doors to a unique kids cooking supplies store, food activity center and birthday party place on Monday, June 21 at 3742 Far West Blvd, Suite 111 across from the Murchison kickball fields.
Since establisihing Batter Up Kids in 1991, one of the first kids cooking schools in the nation, I am proud to be known as America’s kids cooking expert, and am poised to get kid’s creating culinary masterpieces in a whole new way by opening our flagship location of Kids Cook! After 20 years of teaching children’s cooking classes, I have honed in on specific skills, techniques and recipes along with tips and tricks, which our trained staff will use in the kids’ food activity center at our Kids Cook! store. Rather than offer expensive, hour-long plus cooking classes that take precious time from already over-scheduled kids and families, the store will offer walk-in/no reservation, totally hands-on food activities and shorter 30 minues Saturday morning classes offereing a class for a different age range each Saturday.
For the walk-in food avtivities, children can come in the store during regular business hours without a reservation and will create either a Healthy Treat utilizing fresh fruits and veggies, or a clever Sweet Treat food craft, which could be a cupcake, cookie or some other sweet surprise. Registration -based Saturday morning classes will offer recipes for fresh seasonal foods and focus on specific seasons and holiday celebrations. Pricing will be affordable for all and the interactive food activities will make a great summer boredom buster, after-school snack, or something fun to do with the kids on the weekends.
To complement the delicious cooking activities, Kids Cook! will also feature more than 400 cooking products specially suited for young cooks. Everything a young chef-in-the-making could need, from sous chef jackets and colorful aprons to silicone cake and candy molds and decorating tools, to cookbooks and more, will be available on the store shelves. So a young culinary student can walk out of Kids Cook! armed with all the tools necessary to become successful in the kitchen.
Along with the launch of Kids Cook!, we are also revamping our ever- popular cooking birthday parties that feature some of my best –selling kids recipes from the cookbooks I have authored. These celebrations have been the biggest part of our business through the years and rather than offer a party in a commercial kitchen atmosphere, Kids Cook! will host parties in our French country retail store to maintain the family-friendly feel.
Stop by and visit our new location from now until June 30 and get a free cooking gift. For class times & themes, birthday party pricing and and food treats activities schedule, go to www.kidscookingshop.com.
