Confidence in the kitchen helps pave the path toward life-long healthy eating, and is something we’re passionate about at Whole Foods Market. While kids loving being in the kitchen, a cooking party at home can be a big undertaking. At the Cooking Studio, we handle the meal preparation, activities, and clean-up so that everyone has stress-free fun!
You’re invited to bring the kids to the Cooking Studio where they can get hands-on learning in a safe, fun environment, while experiencing the finest foods from Whole Food Market. Encouraging kids to try new things in the kitchen is a great way to inspire learning, creativity, and team work.
This engaging “drop off” party is also a great socializing event that strengthens interpersonal skills and promotes an inclusive community. Any way you slice it, this pizza party is a blast!
Each private 2 hour pizza party is $300 for up to a total of 12 kids 5-10 years old including the birthday child and 2 adult helpers. Please let us know in advance if any children require a Gluten Free or Dairy Free meal. While ours is a facility that handles all natural food ingredients, we can provide individual meals made without such ingredients for a separate fee. (Note that nuts are already excluded as an ingredient from all the party foods served at the event.)
Our Recipe for Pizza Party Perfection!
At Whole Foods Market we are committed to bringing you the highest quality organic and natural foods available. This commitment extends to our Cooking Studio. You can trust that the ingredients and foods we bring you and your children are free from artificial colors, preservatives, and flavorings. All of our foods are also from high-fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated fats.
Our Kids in the Kitchen Party Guides are dedicated to making your party memorable. They expertly adjust activities based on the children’s needs to best accommodate your party, so that whether you choose to open gifts or not it all flows smoothly. We provide the all the ingredients for success so each child makes his/her own meal during the party.
During the Pizza Party kids stretch their own personal-sized fresh pizza dough made with unbleached, unbromated flours. Then they will customize their pizza with toppings of their choice. Your Party Guide will bake, cool, and serve the pizzas for the party kids during the event.
Kids make their own fruit dippers (also known as fruit kabobs) using fresh, in season fruit from Whole Foods Market for their side dish. Fruit dippers are served with vanilla yogurt sweetened with a touch of local Cooper’s Honey.
Then it’s time for the icing on the cake, cupcake that is! Each child gets 2 cupcakes to ice and decorate- 1 to eat at the party, and 1 to enjoy later. Our icing is hand-tinted here at Whole Foods Market using earth-based colorants.
