COOKIE - LIFE. STYLE. FAMILY. coolcookie

FOOD FOR THOUGHT
From pureed peas to spicy tuna rolls, cultivating an adventurous palate begins in the kitchen.

GET COOKING
Cooking classes for kids have become nearly as popular as music, arts and Mandarin, sprouting up in cities coast to coast. Mini Chefs in NYC hosts yummy workshops and themed classes (Tastes of Italy, Bread Animals, Dazzle Desserts, etc) in a gorgeous, year-round restaurant garden ($40/session). What's Cooking in San Francisco emphasizes organic, seasonal and locally grown foods for in-home lessons for little ones as young as 2-1/2 ($250 for 6 kids; $25 extra for each additional child up to 10 total). At Young Chefs Academies (located in over 24 states) chefs from age 3 to 100 learn everything from kitchen etiquette to making edibles. Check your nearest YCA for class schedules and pricing.

GET DRESSED
Wrap your mini-child (Julia Child, that is) in a 100% cotton French poodle apron ($19.95), and snap up this, dare we say, sexy little French hostess number for yourself ($39.95). Complete your child's ensemble with Chef Central's floppy cotton chef's hat ($14.99)—it's equally suited for prep work and play and fits kids up to 10 years old.

GET IN GEAR
Practice the ABCs of cooking and baking with this charming set of 26 tin cookie cutters ($25), tucked into a decorative lunchbox, and count those 123s with colorful, easy-to-use kids' kitchen timers ($10). And, Williams-Sonoma's three-piece kids' cooking tools set features a spatula, grater and whisk and is a must for budding Batalis.

GET INSPIRED
