New York City families will be heading out to the New York Botanical Gardens all week to enjoy the Culinary Kids Food Festival.  Don’t miss your chance to allow your children to visit the Tip-Top Pickle Shop, Cheesemonger’s Shop, The Bakery and have a spice adventure.  So Family will be there to participate in all of the fun on Saturday, February 22nd from 10AM -1PM.  Just look for the bloggers section and you’ll find me there.  Don’t worry I’ll be wearing my So Family t-shirt so you can spot me.  Here’s a little more information about the food festival;

As part of the Garden’s Edible Academy initiative, join us for a family-friendly, weeklong food festival celebrating the relationships among plants, farms, and your favorite foods. Ruth Rea Howell Family Garden staff and the culinary team, Growing Chefs, will be on hand offering cooking demonstrations, recipes, and hands-on activities, with plenty of music and tastings to add to the fun. Bring your Festival passport along as you tinker with the science of kitchen chemistry and get to the root of foods from pickles to cheese at a variety of activity stations. The daily 1 p.m. cooking demonstration will feature kid-friendly recipes and tasty samples, while local chefs will share tips and recipes.

Don’t forget to stop by the blogger booth on Saturday to say hi!  I’ll see you there New York Families.  For more information on the CUlinary Kids Food Festival please visit their website,
