Kids in the Kitchen

Cooking with kids is not just about ingredients, recipes and cooking. It’s about harnessing imagination, empowerment and creativity. — Guy Fieri

Some of us remember helping in the kitchen as a kid. We remember the messes and the smells and the tastes– and the love.

Others may not have such experiences. The kitchen may bring flashbacks of worried warnings: “beware of this and don’t touch that!”

Regardless of our backgrounds, we all hope to instill our children with important life skills. Nothing could be as important as fostering a love and respect for food.

Real life prevents us from including our kids in every meal. Sometimes we just need to get the chicken in. the. oven.

City Kitchen is running a series of Sunday cooking classes for kids. This is the perfect opportunity to encourage childhood independence and enrich the entire family’s passion for food– while making the mess in someone else’s kitchen…

Spreading Valentine’s Day Love Throughout The Year

Love may be the main dish, but February 14th usually comes with sides of stress and questioning.

Should we go to the same white tablecloth restaurant again? Can we afford a weekend away? Is this gift too much or not enough?

The days of being satisfied with a bouquet or a box are long over. Holidays are about memories. So, City Kitchen at the Reading Terminal Market planned a Valentine’s Day event that turned out to be one for the (cook) books.

On February 13, or shall we say Valentine’s Eve, City Kitchen hosted a 5 course meal.City Kitchen Valentine's Day Menu

Reading Terminal Market’s own Jack McDavid, chef and owner of Down Home Diner, prepared this elegant and delicious menu. Caviar, quail and exquisite oysters tickled the tastebuds of the guests, but it was the rustic sausage balls that won the crowd favorite.

Jack was kind to give a brief history of The Reading Terminal and its significance to this City of Love.

While Valentine’s Day is a popular (and important!) time to show our love, we shouldn’t forget to extend this feeling throughout the year. A City Kitchen cooking class is the perfect way to cook up some memories, regardless of the date on the calendar.
