Sept. 4, 2012 - PRLog -- WHAT: The Boston Center for Adult Education’s (BCAE) Bean City Kids program is continuing the popular monthly series of interactive kids’ celebrity chef classes!

On Monday, October 22nd, 2012 from 3:30PM to 4:30PM, kids will have the opportunity to tap into their creative side, working spoon to spoon with celebrity chef Marisa Iocco, Executive Chef of Gennaro’s 5 North Square located in the North End.  Boston’s only Italian-born female chef, Iocco, artfully fuses American and Italian cuisine into her new concept called MANGIAmerica.  She reinterprets her native Italian roots with American flavors, blending her past with her present.

This interactive cooking class is hands-on, allowing kids to explore a whole new world of food appreciation while learning the tricks of the trade. They will take part in the cooking process from start to finish, building confidence and pride in the dishes they've created. At the end of the session the group will sit down with Chef Iocco and enjoy the fruits of their labor.

Conveniently scheduled after school, the classes are perfect for children six to nine years of age! The themes & items prepared vary from month to month.
