Get Your Kids Cooking at Sur La Table

One of my friends had her hands full today with her two kids on winter break, which reminded me of some kids' cooking classes I heard about recently.

Next week, there's a three-day class going on at Sur La Table at Kierland Commons, where kids age 8 and up will learn how to make all kinds of dishes, from homemade pasta alla chitarra to creme brulee. How cute is that? It's $125 for the series, and sessions start at 10:30 a.m. next Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, December 29-31.

Then on Saturday, January 3, they have a one-day class ($55) that starts at noon, open to kids age 6 and up (must be accompanied by an adult). What a genius idea -- teach the kids how to make guacamole and paninis and chocolate chip cookies, then let them take care of dinner. Ah, so this is why people have children . . . -- Michele Laudig
