1:00 PM Cook With Your Kid: Chinese Take-Out Ditch your local Chinese take-out menu and cook up some kid-favorite Chinese dishes that will satisfy both parents and hungry kid chefs alike!

We begin class by dicing and mixing up the classic ingredients for a perfect sharable dish: fried rice. Every rice dish needs a saucy entree, and sweet & sour chicken is a natural fit for this menu. You and your kid chef will mix together the ingredients for an authentic sweet and sour sauce which we will use to coat juicy chunks of pre-cooked chicken.

You canˇt beat food thatˇs sweet: we finish class with moist vanilla cupcakes, hand decorated and topped with a special fortune for each kid chef!

This class is designed for kids ages 5-9 years old + an adult. One ticket will cover you + your child.

*This class may accommodate Gluten-Free, Vegetarian and Dairy-Free dietary restrictions.

Admission/Cost: $7.50 - $30
