1. Cooking with Maman
Make your kids want to cook at home thanks to a cookie decorating workshop proposed by Maman on Wednesday, December 13th from 4:00pm to 5:30pm. Children will be able to play the role of a budding pastry cook, and – best part – to do it again at home for the great pleasure of all. This may raise vocations and create the desire for some children to walk in the footsteps of French world-class baker Pierre Hermé.
Pleasure guaranteed for everyone’s taste, eyes and ears in a joyful and cheerful mood! Note that places are limited ($35, subscribe now to participate to the Kids Holiday Cookie Decorating Workshop).
2. Watching a French animated film in partnership with Uptown Flicks
Spend a sweet afternoon watching anoriginal French movie with your all family. This will be an animated film called Tout en haut du monde, retracing the outstanding epic quest of one girl towards the North Pole.
“The frosty landscapes have a subtle beauty, pale and sometimes shrouded in mist, giving the film a very different look from what often comes out of the big studios — somber, which is appropriate to the story. The movie is likely to seem thin in every way to many young viewers, but discerning ones might appreciate its differences.” If the New York Times says so!
The screening is scheduled on Saturday, December 16th at 2:30pm ! Book your tickets for the Family time!
