Canandaigua, NY – January 21, 2014 -- The New York Wine & Culinary Center will hold Kid’s Culinary Workshops February 18th, 20th & 21st from 2PM – 5PM each day. Seats can be reserved separately, or for multiple days. 

“During the workshops, the kids will learn about knife skills, cooking methods, healthy choices, portion control and food pairing,” said Head Chef Instructor, Jeffory McLean. “Each day we will prepare a different dinner entrée. Not only will the kids be cooking a meal, but they’ll make enough to take home to their family for dinner.”

The menus consist of braised beef tips, roasted chicken, and Tuscan roasted pork loin. Each dinner preparation also includes portions to feed up to a family of four. Participants have the option to register for a single workshop, but are encouraged to try all three.

Workshops recommended for kids ages 10-15. Ages 9 & under require accompaniment (at no extra charge).

The February Break Workshop costs $75 per class or $200 for 3-day package*
