Feeding kids can be tricky! We need to prepare food for them everyday and make meals that are healthy, balanced, and appealing so that they are actually eaten! Quality proteins and fats provide the ability to stay focused and the energy to learn. In this class, we will discuss how to balance proteins, fats and carbohydrates in your child’s snacks and lunches. The right balance will help to provide them everything they need to maintain balanced blood sugar and energy. Come to Kitchen on Fire to learn tips and tricks to ensure your child gets the right nutrients in the right amounts each day. During this hands-on class we will create several full lunches with easy variations to work around allergies and food preferences! They'll keep your kids from getting bored and prevent food from being tossed, traded or brought back home.
A snack will be served at the beginning of the class, and the first class dish will be ready by noon. Students will eat the remaining dishes they have made at the end of the class.
Please contact us if you want to book the class for more than one of your children, and we will give you a better price (510-548-2665)
The former co-owner and bar manager of Berkeley’s acclaimed Cesar Tapas Bar, Said is one of the Bay Area’s respected culinary personalities. Born and raised in France, he is the descendant of at least five generations of restaurateurs dating back to the early 1750s in France. Said began his career at the age of 15 in his mother’s Paris restaurant. He moved to Los Angeles in the early 1980s and worked at Ken Frank’s La Toque, one of the first restaurants in the country to feature California nouvelle cuisine. In 1987, Said returned to Paris and opened his own restaurant, the very popular Texas Coyote, which included three sprawling bars and a night club. It had frequent reviews in the press such as Gault Millau, Vogue, Le Point, Le Nouvel Observateur, Le Monde, Paris Capital magazine, Liberation and Marie Claire. Olivier Said was a regular guest host on the number two national radio station in France, Skyrock, live from his restaurant.
