No one is ever too old for a pizza-making class. Always learning something new but also a lot of fun during a cooking class. Eataly at The Beach has everything for everyone.
La Scuola masterclasses for kids and adults
The restaurant has announced the launch of its La Scuola masterclasses at the Italian food market and restaurant concept at Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR). Starting July 18, in-house chefs at Eataly at The Beach will offer a regular series of cooking sessions for the city’s amateur food enthusiasts, educating them about Italian culture and cuisine.
Yesterday, we attended the kids class, pizza making. AED 75 / kid and they spent there almost 3 hours. Too bad we won’t be there next time but you should check the class for your kids.
The kids enjoyed every minute of the pizza-making class. It was very informational. The chef explained everything in detail, even how to make it at home, explaining the difference between the professional oven that they are using in restaurants and the home oven. He carefully checked that every child was happy without the pizza-making process, providing all ingredients required for customized pizzas. Children loved eating their own pizza and were very proud of their making. We adults also snitched some pieces, pizzas were absolutely delicious.
For the kids, the next session is on this coming Sunday, 7th of August and they will make Chocolate cookies. The next session is on the 21st of August when they will make carrot cupcakes. Time: 10.00am-11.00am. Price: AED 75.
It was a very nice family afternoon! Looking for some more after the summer holidays! 😎
