The River Market will again be hosting cooking classes for kids on Tuesdays in July. The classes will be held at “The Bill and Margaret Clark Third Floor Multi-Purpose Facility Room” on the 3rd floor above the Boulevard Bread Company. Teaching the classes at the Market for the fourth year is Faith Anaya, founder of the acclaimed Little Rock cooking school Kids Cook!™ Faith is also a featured columnist for AY Magazine and, along with her students, is a regular guest on THV Channel 11’s “Positively Arkansas” morning show, appearing to discuss and demonstrate “kid-friendly” recipes. This year’s classes are smaller and include two different age groups. The class is totally hands on and kids eat what they make. A great way to spend Tuesdays in July!
