It's never too soon to start honing your expert palate, so we're super excited to announce that we're bringing our popular JUST FOR KIDS tasting events to an even younger audience! We'll be reading Stone Soup by Marcia Brown and then tasting matzo ball soup, potato knish and farm bread. The best part for us is that we'll be teaching your kids to taste the food like an expert - using the 5 steps to tasting great food.

We think kids ages 2-5 would most enjoy this event. Parents attend free. The story and tasting will last about 30 minutes and then participants are welcome to stay in the reserved room for lunch. We will have an order taker on hand, so no need to shlep the tots all around the Deli. All participants will receive a 20% off coupon to use after the tasting for lunch and/or shopping at the Deli. Please include your child's name, age, and any allergy information in the comments field when you register. Thank you!

Our Guinness Beef Stew is so rich and flavorful that Amy says, “I’ve since stopped up making my family’s stew recipe.” Beware this might happen to you too!

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, dinner for four and great coupons.
