Kids in the Kitchen: Fall 2017 Programs

  • Southern Food and Beverage Museum 1830 Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard New Orleans, LA, 70113 United States (map)

We are happy to announce the next installment of our monthly Kids in the Kitchen programs! Each program is a ticketed event with limited space so we can keep the instruction as hands-on and interactive as possible. We ask that all age restrictions be followed, as each class is created specifically for each group.

Upcoming Kids in the Kitchen Programs

Tickets are available on Active. All sessions are $20 per child or $15 for SoFAB members. We love to see your chefs in action, so tag us on Facebook or Instagram when they're flexing their new cooking skills!



In this indulgent month, we’ll have some fun making desserts that go beyond just cookies and cupcakes, introducing the kids to new techniques through their favorite tastebud.

Sunday, December 10 | Fondue

10:00-11:30 AM (ages 7-11)


We’re going retro! This will be such a fun way for the kids to try different foods through the ol’ communal tradition of fondue, and of course dipping everything under the sun in chocolate. They will be able to experiment with how different fruits and foods taste with chocolate, and hopefully surprise themselves.

Allergy Alerts- dairy, gluten optional.

Saturday, December 30 | Crisps and Cobbler!

10:00-11:30 AM (ages 7-11)

Very similar in structure, we’ll get to jump into the subtle differences of these traditional desserts through making them from scratch and eating the results. We’ll use seasonal fruit and explore the cultural reasons they have found such a hold on our holidays and hearts.

Allergy Alerts- dairy, gluten.


If you have any issues with the ticketing software or would prefer to make your reservation on the phone, please call us at 504-267-7490 during the week or 504-569-0405 on the weekends. Tickets may be refunded or exchanged up to 48 hours prior to the event. After 48 hours no refunds will be available.

Kids in the Kitchen Incentive Program!

Each time your student replicates a dish made during camp or a Kids in the Kitchen program and sends a picture of them in action to Jennie Merrill (, they will receive a chef hat cut out. We'll write their name on that cut out which will go on a wall in the Museum. Here are the prizes!

  • 5 chef hats= SoFAB Creole Spice
  • 10 chef hats= SoFAB apron
  • 15 chef hats= Choose the Menu- You get to choose the theme of the next class! Whatever YOU want to make (within reason and consultation with Jennie).


Many thanks to the generous support of the Emeril Lagasse Foundation for the development of SoFAB's middle school programs.
