Get Cooking with Curious Chef- 27pc. Set Review + Giveaway!

I love to cook with my kids. They love to help stir, and mix, and whip. They enjoy helping with dinner, and baking sweet treats, and rarely ever turn down an opportunity to spend time in the kitchen with me.

I had never heard of Curious Chef before I had the opportunity to review the 27 piece Foundation Kit, but as soon as it arrived, the kids wanted to dive right into a project!


I promised them that as soon as I could get some pictures, we would use it- and we would use it a lot! That night, I threw everything into the dishwasher and the next morning as the kids unloaded all of the pint-sized utensils, their excitement built even more.

That night, we made peanut butter cookies, and since then have made just about every dinner from meatloaf to chicken cutlets and many snacks and desserts. The child sized utensils are perfect to scoop out dough and to spread frosting over cakes and cupcakes. The only issue I've had is that there's only one set, so I will have to get some extra utensils to end the arguing over who's going to stir, whisk or spread next!

Curious Chef makes party event kits to help make your child's next birthday, sleepover, or pizza party a most memorable occasion. I love their gift kits and kitchen starter kits, or the fact that you can just buy the pieces individually, if space or multiple children will be sharing the tools.

Make Curious Chef a part of your holiday tradition, and start sharing time in the kitchen with the kids! Happy Cooking!!

WANT IT?
Visit Curious Chef online to view their large selection of kitchen kits and utensils perfect for your little peanut.

This giveaway is open to residents of the US and will end on December 17th, at 11:59pm EST. One winner will be chosen at random using Random.org. Disclosure: The item reviewed was provided to me, at no cost, by the PR Company that represents Curious Chef. I did
not accept monetary compensation for reviewing or writing about this experience, and all opinions expressed are my own.

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WINNER!


Please read the WINNERS POST for more information on how to claim your prize! Thank you all for participating in our giveaway. Happy Holidays!
