All-Star Chef Classic for Kids

All-Star Chef Classic Little Masters Le Creuset

Inside Restaurant Stadium

The best days of my adult life are the days I get to sit back and watch my daughter make dreams become realities. Today was one of those days.  Kiddo is a dreamer. I don’t know if that’s exactly the best word to describe her, but she’s so much more of a creative soul than an engineer type.  So participating in the Little Masters cooking event at the All-Star Chef Classic is a big deal for her. I mean a really big deal, and I was so grateful that she was able to be a part of it.

Having the chance to watch her “do her thing” and accomplish one more thing on her “life list” direct from Restaurant Stadium was surreal. Her love for cooking has grown in leaps and bounds since she first went to the inaugural event two years ago and watching her respect the art of cooking this time around made my heart smile.

She was there on a mission and nothing was going to get between her and her Le Creuset skillet or Ludo Lefebvre, but we’ll get to that in a few.  The lovely, Sarah Michelle Gellar hosted this amazing event as her new company Foodstirs was a proud sponsor, as was William-Sonoma who provided these fun chef hats amongst other fab item for the kids cooking class.

But the runaway star of the show was three time James Beard Award winner, Sherry Yard. The spunky chef is such a wonderful inspiration for budding Little Masters with honestly, has the raddest shoes in all of the land. We’re talking rainbow sparkle Vans. AND…she has pink hair. So cool and so thrilled in 2016, she has plans to revive Helms Bakery as Chef and Owner. 

Today pizza was on the menu and not only was everything perfectly measured for the Little Masters, making it easy for our pint-sized chefs to make their magic, but they were able to knead the dough and add the toppings of their choosing.

I’m going to make a very bold statement right now. My husband and I both agree after trying our daughter’s masterpiece, it was the best pizza dough we’ve ever tasted. Coming from New Jersey that is a testament to how perfectly delicious it was.

So now back to Chef Ludo. Kiddo has been trying to get a spot in his kid’s cooking class at Trois Mec here in L.A. the last few times to no avail, so it was HUGE for her to muster up the courage to ask him for a photo. She was thrilled and may or may not have blushed a bit when she complimented him on his pink highlights as he replied, “Merci!”

I highly recommend this event because it is perfect for children 3 – 13 who love to cook, love to make things, or just plain loves to eat. And it’s fantastic for mom and dad because the goodie bag you’ll bring home will encourage even more family time in the kitchen. I’m telling you, do not pass up this Los Angeles gem of an event.

    my sonny boy SEan Eddie would love this–he is 8 and just starting really taking an interest in cooking–not just baking. We made meatballs and omemade sauce last week with garlic bread. This looks like a great event.
