Cooking can be a great experience for children, and allowing them to be a part of preparing a meal can make family time memorable. Safety in the kitchen is always a concern if young children want to help with cooking, but there are many ways to keep children safe, and child-friendly recipes and tools can be a great idea when children want to cook. Child-friendly recipes are recipes that use ingredients that children actually like. It's a fun idea to introduce a recipe ingredient that children may never have tasted before when preparing a recipe. Children are more likely to experiment with new tastes if they are involved in the preparation.
The chefs at Publix Supermarkets in Sarasota are offering a parent-child cooking experience on January 11 at 11:00 a.m. as part of its Aprons classes for the new year. The Sweet Memories class for ages 5-10 will teach ways to keep children safe in the kitchen when the question of "Can I cook?" arises at home. The Aprons chefs will offer no-bake recipes to prepare because using the oven is always a concern when children want to cook. Child-friendly recipes that do not require baking or using the stove are always a great idea.
Interested families may register for the Sweet Memories class by logging on to the Publix website, or call 941-358-7829 for registration information. The Publix Supermarket at University Walk, located at 2875 University parkway in Sarasota will be the site for the Sweet Memories class on January 11.
Come and participate in this parent-child cooking experience and learn to make memories in your home when cooking with your child.
