This summer, as we geared up for the transition of the store, the Casual Gourmet hosted a number of Jr. Chefs for its inaugural Kids in the Kitchen cooking class series!
Led by holistic nutritionist Catherine Switzer, the Jr. Chefs learned how to use local, fresh produce to create healthy lunches, snacks and summer treats (who doesn't love homemade ice cream?!).
While cooking up a storm, they learned how to safely use kitchen tools, the importance of nutrition and how to pack a litterless lunch!
We are excited to be running a new series of Kids in the Kitchen classes this fall! Check out “Classes” on our website to sign your Jr. Chef up for Litterless Lunches, Super Kid Soups and Holiday Baking!
Our first fall class was a great success with Catherine getting our Jr. Chefs to bake, try and love spaghetti squash! They also LOVED her Pumpkin Pie dip for apples! (contact us for the recipes!)
