Parents, here's a chance to help their kids learn about healthy foods while having a fun time in the process.
Join celebrity Chef Angie Shaghaghi at The Sacred Olive in Winter Garden as she teaches the kids how to prepare salads, a “nut free” pesto and a healthy version of meatballs. The cost of the class is $40 per student and is limited to 15 kids ages 7 to 12. At the end of the 1.5 hour class, parents will be able to taste the delicious meals their children created.
The class is hosted by the owner of The Sacred Olive, Carolyn Hill. The partnership between Chef Angie and Hill “was a natural fit as both moms were inspired to start businesses based on the personal and loving connection they bring to their edible creations,” Heather Reneau, publisher of Playground magazine explained. “Their mission is the same - to share their passion and love for healthy cooking with others.”
Chef Angie is visiting Central Florida from New Jersey where she owns Creative Cooks (www.creative-cooks.com), a mobile cooking class that educates more than 300 kids each week about cooking and helps them to foster a healthy connection with food.
Her television appearances started in 2008 when she earned second place on Rachael Ray’s "Hey Can You Cook?!" Afterward she began appearing on The Food Network and in various magazines and newspapers. She has also appeared in national television commercials and numerous cooking competitions such as Food Networks’ "Chopped" and "Cutthroat Kitchen." Chef Angie has cooked with and for Iron Chefs, Top Chefs and celebrities.
“The kids in my classes try everything because I make it fun,” Chef Angie said. “We draw, dance or even sing to get into the tasting mood.”
Chef Angie's advise to the kids and students: “Don’t be afraid to fail, and NEVER give up!”
Registration is now open for local kids ages 7 to 12 to take advantage of this one-time special event.
