Produced by the same team who brings the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by Food & Wine to South Florida each February, Kohl’s Fun and Fit as a Family featuring Kellogg’s Kidz Kitchen will return for its fourth year, February 26 & 27, 2011. Taking place at Jungle Island, one of Miami’s premier theme parks, the event will once again bring together everyone’s favorite celebrity chefs, culinary personalities, health and fitness professionals, and more for a weekend of interactive learning for the whole family!
“I’m excited to be a part of Kohl’s Fun and Fit as a Family and to share information with other parents that will help them make thoughtful, healthy and affordable choices for themselves and their families,” said Melissa d’Arabian, host of Food Network’s Ten Dollar Dinners. “As a mother of four young girls, I under-stand the importance of getting children excited about smart food choices now as I know it will establish a foundation for them to make healthy lifestyle decisions that will last a lifetime.”
Fun and Fit as a Family once again welcomes a star-studded group of chefs and culinary talent to help teach families about how to make healthier eating choices together – including the internationally recognized Jamie Oliver, who helped kick-off the first Fun and Fit as a Family event in 2008. Other chefs and personalities appearing alongside Oliver in the interactive Whole Foods Market FOOD LABS presented by Breville include: Michelle Bernstein, Adrianne Calvo, Cat Cora, Melissa d’Arabian and Marcela Valladolid. Emceed by local, teenage foodie Jeremy Salamon, the children will sit down for a hands-on culinary experience – cooking up healthy recipes from their favorite culinary stars to bring home to the whole family to try.
The fun continues in the Kellogg’s Kidz Kitchen where Rachael Ray, Guy Fieri, Giada De Laurentiis, Rocco Dispirito, Duff Goldman, and Tyler Florence will demonstrate their favorite healthy recipes for kids and their parents. Chefs and culinary personalities in both the Kellogg’s Kidz Kitchen and the Whole Foods Market FOOD LABS will be working in custom kitchen spaces courtesy of Panda Kitchen & Bath.
In addition to the culinary demonstrations and other activities, families can enjoy healthy food and drink samples at ”Destination Food” from sponsors like Kohl’s, Barilla, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cape Cod Potato Chips, Cranberry Marketing Board, Lifeway, Pollo Tropical, and much more!
