Cook Up Something Special At These 3 Sweet Toronto Party Venues!

With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, it’s not only images of pink hearts and cupids that come to mind, but it seems like this time of year also coincides with cravings for delicious chocolate, heavenly desserts and tasty savoury treats. If you’re planning a kids’ party at this time of year, you want the food to be on point – but you don’t necessarily want the stress and the mess of doing all the work yourself.

Well here’s a solution you may not have considered. The GTA has all kinds of great venues that host cooking parties for children. These parties are fun and engaging – but more than that, they can help develop a love of cooking at an early age.

Here are three great venues for your budding Rachael Ray or Bobby Flay:

The Chef Upstairs

The Chef Upstairs offers children’s cooking parties for kids as young as four as well as for older children and teenagers. With two convenient locations, they can accommodate up to 20 guests in their Mount Pleasant location and up to 50 in their Vaughan facility.

These venues definitely know how to do parties right with decorations, music, age appropriate party games and adorable little aprons for the kids. The cooking classes can be customized to suit your little one’s (or bigger one’s) food preferences, and their nut-free facility and accommodating staff mean you won’t have to worry about food allergies.

Need a little something for the adults to enjoy while the kids are making their culinary creations? Be sure to ask them about optional food and drink add-ons for the parents!


Chocolate Tales

But what if you want to skip the main course and go straight to dessert? In that case, you can’t go wrong booking a chocolate making party at Chocolate Tales.

Your kiddos will have an absolute blast at a Chocolate Tales party. Younger children can participate in fun activities like chocolate finger painting, lollipop making and cake decorating, while older kids and teens get to feel a bit more sophisticated as they create specialty truffles while sipping on decadent chocolate mocktails. (Maybe you’ll even get to enjoy one of those Black Forest Martinis for yourself!)

At the end of the party, your child and their guests will have their delicious chocolate creations to take home and enjoy.

Le Dolci 

Nothing quite says “birthday party” like pizza and cupcakes, and at Le Dolci you can have your pick.

Known for their scrumptious bake shop and cooking classes and team building events for all ages, Le Dolci offers parties for up to 12 guests.

For kids’ parties, you can choose a cupcake decorating party at which kids decorate their own cupcakes to take home before enjoying a pizza meal and birthday cake or you can choose a pizza making party at which your child and their guest will each get to make one savory pizza and one dessert pizza.

There are so many benefits to arranging a cooking party for your child’s next birthday. Not only can it be incredibly entertaining for all the kids and expose them to what is potentially a new skill for them – but at the end of the day, someone else is doing the dishes!
