Join Chef Warren as he shares the ABC’s of kitchen safety, how the ‘nose knows’, basic knife skills, common kitchen myths, and 5 healthy recipes any child can make in less than 10 minutes with ingredients you probably already have on hand.

Chef Warren ends the presentation with a hands-on cooking demonstration, preparing a healthy 10-minute entrée that you and your child can replicate in your own home.
This event is free and open to the public, with first-come, first-served seating. Recipes and instruction will be suitable for children ages 10 and up. For more information please contact Megan Fontaine by phone at 850-837-8572 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

McCartan, who is from Escambia County, Florida, is a physical education teacher who has also become a much-loved music ambassador for children of all ages.

“Mr. Mac’s” unique message to libraries is seen as a way to increase audience participation, boost patron satisfaction and promote reading for children of all ages.
