Right here in Montreal, Atelier Petit Chef offers culinary activities for children as young as 3 years old in a kid-friendly kitchen. Kids not only learn how to cook but most importantly the recipes tickle their taste buds by initiating them to new flavors.
Cooking classes for kids are an awesome idea. We are never too young to learn how to cook. It may be a way to bring our kids away from junk food. Since the kids bring home the recipes they cooked during the class, redoing the recipes in your own kitchen is an excuse to stimulate the habit of home cooking.
The workshops currently offered are:
- Mini Atelier – $5/child for 30 minutes
- P’tit Chou (ages 3 to 6) – $8/child for 1 hour
- P’tit Four (ages 7 to 12) – $20/session or $70/4 children, 1 1/2 hour as an after-school activity
- P’tit Pain (ages 7 to 12) – $45 to learn bread making, a 3-hour workshop on Sundays
Atelier Petit Chef is an initiative of Cuisine Gourmet, a shop with several stores in the Montreal area. It is a must see shop for people who are serious about cooking. They also sell online; although I never used their online services. I noticed that they deliver to the United States and that Americans can shop in US dollars.
