If you're a parent of a budding foodie and you live in New York City, consider swinging by this weekend's Kids Food Festival, which will be held at Citi Pond℠ in Bryant Park from 10:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. on Saturday and Sunday. The James Beard Foundation will be hosting its own Future Foodie Pavilion, which will feature cooking demos by Jim Lahey, Jehangir Mehta, Ellie Krieger, and more. We're also running a kiosk in the general-admission area, where we'll be selling the participating chefs' cookbooks and holding a bake sale to benefit our Silver Anniversary Scholarship Drive. Since JBF is working hard to nurture this country's culinary future, the Kids Food Festival, whose mission is to fight childhood obesity through fun and flavorful activities around balanced food choices, is a natural partnership. General admission is free, but tickets must be purchased to attend demos at the JBF pavilion and any programming on the festival's main stage.
