The James Beard Foundation is a proud partner of the Kids Food Festival, running next Saturday and Sunday at the Bank of America Winter Village in New York City’s Bryant Park. Presented by the Creative Kitchen, the weekend will be packed with fun and engaging activities dedicated to educating families about making balanced food choices that foster lifelong wholesome eating. Little epicures and their parents can attend hands-on cooking classes in the James Beard Foundation Future Foodies Pavilion, where renowned chefs like Daniel Holzman, Jehangir Mehta, and Bill Telepan will share their recipes, skills, and love for all things culinary. Our own Izabela Wojcik and Victoria Jordan will bring James Beard to a new generation by hosting a class and demonstrating the recipe for his famous shortcakes with apple–pear compote.

The festival also includes free activities like the Balanced Plate Scavenger Hunt, where kids bounce between exhibitors and activities to sample tasty snacks while learning the importance of making balanced food choices. Families can enjoy live music and dance, cooking demonstrations, fitness workshops, food sampling, giveaways, and more!

General admission to the festival is free; tickets to cooking classes in the James Beard Foundation Future Foodies Pavilion can be purchased for $25. (One ticket covers admission for one child and an accompanying adult.)
