About a month or two ago Lauren and I signed up Lila and Bea for a cooking class at Pomme. For those unfamilar with Pomme, it is a gorgeous children's shop in Dumbo, Brooklyn, full of very special clothes and toys. It is a great place to go when you need a special gift for a new baby or special child in your life. In addition the shop hosts classes and events - last year we took the kids and had wonderful silhouettes made by a talented visiting artist.
Back to the cooking class. Lauren had a master plan...the girls would be occupied for a few hours and while they were we could do some shopping and explore dumbo...I must say it all worked out beautifully. When we arrived the back room was set up for the class: the tables were stylishly set and the kids were invited to sit on low benches in groups of 6 or 8. The teachers were very friendly and welcoming so parents were able to go do their own thing. When we picked up the girls the smell of freshly baked cookies wafted through the air and all the kids were in great spirits.
The cooking classes are taught by Anna Harrington of Yummy Time and are for kids ages 4-8. I recently got an email from Pomme and there are three more classes on the schedule now: March 31, April 7, and April 21. If you are in nyc check them out!
