Stew Leonard’s Newington store is celebrating Easter with several family-friendly events this April 2019, including an egg hunt, breakfast with the Easter Bunny, and culinary classes.
During the culinary classes, children receive hands-on instruction in preparing various products as well as learn about the importance of measuring, cooperation skills in the kitchen and the importance of food safety. Price is per child per class and payment is required at the time of registration. Parents/caretakers are kindly asked to register children at least 24 hours in advance. If a parent/caretaker needs to cancel a class, refunds will be given only if the store is notified 24 hours in advance. Classes will be held in Stew Leonard’s Executive Kitchen on the second floor of the grocery store in Newington, Conn. Children do not need to be accompanied by an adult, except for the classes for toddlers (ages 2-5 years old), which requires an adult to supervise their little one.
