This summer, we’re in favor of letting your kids touch the stove. Let us explain.
We’d only recommend this activity under professional supervision, with detailed instruction, and the promise of tasty treats at the end — AKA, everything you get in one of Sur La Table’s cooking camps.
Check out the camps held at Sur La Table (711 South Dakota Ave.), perfect for little chefs who’d love hands-on cooking instruction this summer. Bon appétit.
