What’s Going on At Chef Toni’s? A Letter from the Chef… #KidsCookingNYC

Dear Parents,

It’s been quite some time since we’ve spoken. Another year is nearing its end and there’s so much to be thankful for and so much that I would like to share with you. As you all might already know, I moved this past July into a beautiful new space, with a larger kitchen, two teaching stations, a dining room, and the sweetest backyard ever! It’s located at 967 Columbus Avenue between 107th & 108th Streets. It’s a dream space come true. At the end of our day, after we’ve cooked and eaten and completed our homework, we spill out into the backyard and have such fun playing into the twilight – without having to leave our premises, what a joy!

This year will be my 8th year teaching my Jr. chefs and I can think of nothing more rewarding. I’m so thankful for the time I spend in the kitchen with all my students. During the summer we whipped up the most delicious dishes from all around the world and spent entire days together learning about other cultures and cooking its foods and I look forward to continuing to do so at all our upcoming holiday camps (see Winter Break Holiday Camp – Dec 23, 24, 26 & 27th, schedule below) and at our holiday themed Saturday Cook N Plays (See our December 21st Winterland Cook & Play below) in the future. Find our ambitious holiday camp global recipes on our Blog.

Our 2013 Fall Farm-to-Table After-School Chefs Program is almost over. We’ve had a blast and I’m looking forward to doing it all over again for the 2014 Spring semester. Recipes for all our after school chef programs are being compiled into a Chef Toni Recipe Booklet and will be given to students at the end of the semester.
2014 after-school classes start January 6, 2014 and end June 27, 2014. The new year will be full of surprises with new chefs coming on board as well as a few very special guest chef appearances. We’re planning to cook, eat, and play with many healthy wholesome meals and lots more fun all year. Enrollments have begun and are ongoing. To enroll for individual or weekly classes, please go to cheftoniscookingadventures.com. To register for a full semester please contact us at info@chefoniscookingadventures.com or call 646-682-7769. This year we will also provide pickup service from your child’s school if you are able to invite five children or more to join. Please let us know us know as early as you can so we can make the proper arrangements.

Look for our popular Saturday Cook N Plays held twice monthly on Saturdays from 2pm-5pm (see attached for our prior events). Our December Winterland Cook N Play is scheduled for Saturday, December 21st. Please see description below. To enroll, go to www.cheftoniscookingadventures.com. Save your space today! Enrollments are on a first-come-first-serve basis. Birthday parties at Chef Toni’s have been a blast! We’ve hosted a birthday party every weekend since the end of summer now and it’s been as much fun for us as it has for our birthday girls and boys. (Please read our latest Birthday Party review at Yelp.com). Please also inquire about our birthday packages at info@cheftoniscookingadventures.com and you will give your child “The best birthday present ever!”
