Stew Leonard's Newington Store April – June 2014 Culinary Classes for Kids

 

Stew Leonard's Newington store is offering a number of new cooking classes for children over the next few months, including classes to celebrate Easter, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day. There is also a new slate of classes for toddlers called A Book and a Bite, where class instructors read the children a food-related book and then create a dish based on the story.

 

 

The 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, which is payable at the time of registration. 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 children ages 2-5 years old, which requires an adult to supervise their little one.
