Stew Leonard's Newington Store July – September 2014 Culinary Classes for Kids

 

WHAT:                

Stew Leonard's Newington store will offer a number of new cooking classes for children over the next few months, including two new week-long culinary summer camps. The popular A Book and a Bite class series for toddlers will also return this summer 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 toddlers ages 2-5 years old, which requires an adult to supervise their little one.
