Some of the sweetest holiday memories involve food––so this season, teach your eager kitchen helpers valuable culinary skills by taking them to a festive cooking class! Pint-sized chefs and bakers can whip up everything from French crepes to pumpkin pie and autumn soups. Along the way, they’ll also learn how to measure and mix and the benefits of shopping “in season” for produce. Who knows? Maybe this is the year your littlest elf will bake Santa’s cookies himself! Read on for where to cook up some holiday spirit and delicious delights.
