5:30 PM—8 PM
Chef Erika Araujo will show kids how much fun baking can be as part of “The Day of the Dead Celebration”.
The kids will familiarize themselves with the ingredients and bake with them in this hands- on experience. Chef Erika will explain the importance of measuring carefully and correctly. Then, kids will mix the ingredients together and pick up special kneading tips for perfectly risen Mexican bread. Chef Erika will then demonstrate each step of turning the dough into a classic “The Day of the Dead Bread” and shaping dough to make perfect decorations of our delicious sweet bread.
While the bread is in the oven, kids will sit together to enjoy a slice of bread, a Mexican hot chocolate and to watch “It’s My Party: Day of the Dead” TVO Kids show starring Chef Erika, where the little ones will learn more about the tradition.
At the end all our little Baking chefs will bring home a Day of the death bread to share with their families.
