Kids in the Kitchen: Food Adventures (While YOU Shop) is on Friday, November 27th at Healthy Living Market and Cafe on Route 50 in Saratoga Springs from 10am to 12pm. Get a nice start on holiday shopping and drop your kiddos off while you shop! In this special class, kids will make their very own chicken pot pies and perform a series of kitchen-science experiments while you’re chipping away at your gift list. They’ll even make a light, from-scratch afternoon dessert and make sure there’s time to eat it all so by the time you come back to collect your little ones, their tummies will be full and your shopping list will be smaller!  Please note that this class is an hour longer than usual, so don’t worry about those long lines you’ll find everywhere: you have extra time!  Plus, they’ll be sending you off with a coupon to help you get you started, so this is really one class you won’t want to miss! This class is great for kids aged 6-12. $25/child. Register here or give them a call at (518)306-4900.
