The playful Ballpark dessert emporium, the Inventing Room announced a series of four complimentary cooking demonstrations just for kids. To break up the ebb the flow of summer vacation, chef Ian Kleinman plans to cultivate excitement around the scientific side of cooking.
"The goal is to get kids excited about science and have them explore all of the different and interesting ways to connect science with food," said Kleinman. The classes will focus on liquid nitrogen ice cream, carbon dioxide, and the methods behind the madness of his beloved sweets and treats.
"I want kids to walk into a grocery store and not take for granted what they see on the shelves," added Klein. "[T]hen I want them to go home and experiment with making their own pop rocks, carbonated drinks and ice cream."
The classes are scheduled from 11 a.m. to noon on June 8, June 15, June 22, and June 29. Space is limited to 20 kids per class and all participants will be sent home with a bag of house-made candy. Reservations are mandatory and can be made by calling 303.885.2802.
