Food Allergy Friendly Cooking Classes for Kids

I keep receiving emails from PR and marketing people for everything and anything remotely food allergy related and sometimes things that just have no connection at all--like sunglasses! I've noticed a couple of emails lately about cooking classes for kids in Boston. I have to admit, I don't usually pay much attention because over time I found they are always unsafe for any food allergy. I guess things have changed since I last read one of those messages from top to bottom, because this one was regarding a nut-free cooking class for kids. Well, that caught my attention, and I thought you might find it intriguing as well!

Marisa Ioco, Chef/Owner of Genarro's in Boston's North End, is conducting a one hour cooking class for children entitled Kids' Celebrity Chef through the Boston Center for Adult Education. It is a one session after-school class for 6 to 9 year-olds, and according to the class description, "All classes are nut-free." The next class is scheduled on Monday, October 22, 2012, 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

I would love to hear from anyone who has attended any of Ms. Ioco's kids cooking classes or from anyone who is familiar with other similar food allergy friendly cooking classes for children. I think it's a great idea!
