Remember last year when Maggianos had Kids Cooking Classes? Well, they’re back and as fun as ever!
Why do we love them so much? Because kids learn a life skill while having fun! And “Foodies” are starting young these days. Don’t underestimate the kiddos- many of them have great palates just waiting to show their stuff.
The class breaks it down to a full meal from salad start to dessert finish.
With these classes they’ll learn time management. How? They start by making dessert! Since dessert needs to be baked, they teach how you can complete the meal while dessert is baking. What are they baking? A yummy apple crostata!
Hands on makes it fun and helps them get a feeling of independence.
So as their first creation is baking- it’s on to the salad!
Everyone loves the Maggiano’s house salad dressing.
While the kids are working in the chef game the parents get a lovely breakfast treat.
The class isn’t over yet! We still have to make the main course- lasagna!!
Chef Patrick takes them step by step through out each dish. And yes, he goes table to table to answer any questions or add addition guidance.
The entire meal that the mini chefs have created are packaged and bagged to be easily taken home to enjoy.
What? They don’t get to eat it there? Nope!!! Because this is Maggiano’s, and they have lunch for our star chefs in the making (yes, parents do too).
And it is from start to finish- delicious!!
So stay tuned for the next set of classes. Contact your nearest Maggiano’s for when their classes take place. Tickets can be purchased through Eventbrite.
Special thanks to the Maggiano’s Short Pump Richmond staff for these great classes
