Alice in Wonderland

~Alice in Wonderland ~ 
( featuring Kids Culinaire- kids culinary
 event ..truly a very first of its kind ) 

Spring is the most beautiful season of the
 year !!Warm bright sun, gorgeous carpet of 
spring flowers and lush green grass with 
hovering bees and butterflies  is surely a 
treat to senses. The cool breeze gives the
 perfect excuse for even lazying around 
with your favourite book. Lil one is a big 
girl now (thats what she likes to be called
 in std 5.) I recently bought a set of story
 books for her  ,which she is thoroughly 
enjoying. While she was busy reading Alice
 in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, I decided to
 breathe in some life to her snack plate !!

Kids Culinaire 
( a food festival designed exclusively for kids)
Spring is the time of outdoor festivals and events 
too. Few weeks back Delhi witnessed a very first
 of its kind - a food festival exclusively designed for
 kids. With the aim of teaching kids about healthy 
choices and importance of fresh local produce,
 it had endless food  activities, games, stories
 and demos to keep the lil ones enthralled. 

Kids making Grape caterpillars and posing with their owl 
sandwiches. It was so fun to be with the kids 

The two day fun festival amidst the lush greenery 
of Nehru park was definitely  a treat to the senses. 
Conceptualised  by Pilcrow Communications , Kids
 Culinaire was truly a wonderland for kids. It was
 surely a pleasure to be a part of such a lovely
 event. The food art sessions by me were 
designed keeping in mind the age and artistic 
inclination  of the kids these days, who not only 
 enjoyed making cute foods  but also had loads
 of fun relishing it too.

India's youngest chef Saransh Goila made some

 yummy smoothies and strawberry mice while 
 Chef Ranveer Brar , judge of current season of 
Master Chef India ,won over the tiny palates 
and hearts with his secret ingredient recipes.

There was a healthy tiffin making completion for

 mommies too where I shared loads of tiffin making 
and packing tips with them. Ayesha Grewal of the 
organic store , Altitude ran super thrilling food tours
 for the kids where they could touch , feel and learn
 all about  veggies, fruits grains and dairy products. 
There is an old Chinese that says- "Tell me and 
will forget, show may and I may remember and
 involve me and I will understand aptly fits for
 this event that involved the kids to learn and
 prepare healthy nutritious food.
