Cooking School for Kids at Atelier Petit Chef

atelier petit chef in NDG Montreal

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:

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.

Host a Cooking Birthday Party

Choose between One Million cupcakes, Pizza Pizzaz, Cookie Royalty, Chocoliscious! Or come up with your own party theme. It costs $245 for an all-inclusive party with 10 children, $295 with 12 children. The kids will bring home a goody bag. Since the party is held at Atelier Petit Chef, you will have no mess to clean.

Dish cooking classes lead to a romantic Valentine’s Day menu

dish cooking studio : valentine's day menu

Something we need a little help for inspirations to prepare our menu. In February, the team at Dish Cooking Studio can help you solve your Valentine’s Day meal dilemma. These are activities you and your lover can enjoy together.

Get Ready for Valentine’s Day

On February 8, Brooke Neveu and her fiancé Jesse, who is an Executive Sous-Chef of the Four Seasons Hotel, Toronto will prepare a romantic meal that you can replicate at home for the big night. This is your chance to learn new cooking tricks and recipes.

There is a 2 for 1 promotion of Get Ready for Valentine’s Day, call to book your seats. Go with a girlfriend. This way, you can help each other if you encounter a problem duplicating the menu.

Couples in the Kitchen

Instead of going to a crowded restaurant this year, why not do something different? You will still enjoy great food and wine during the evening. It is just that it would be a more intimate atmosphere with no work required. This event will be on February 14, 2008 from 6:30 PM to 9 PM at Dish Cooking Studio. It leaves you plenty of time for romance thereafter.

Valentine’s Day recipes

No time for a class or you still need a little of encouragement, I found on Dish Cooking Studio Web site a Valentine’s Day menu for a previous event. Check out the February 13, 2006 – Valentine’s Experience with Joshna. I suggest you try the Spiced Beef Tenderloin with a Cocoa Crust.

Founded by Trish Magwood, Dish Cooking Studio is located in Toronto.
