The Chef and I definitely don't hide from the fact that we have kids. Some chefs we know distance themselves from their families and personal lives while at their restaurant. This is something we are just not able to do. We are never gonna own a restaurant that doesn't allow or support kids. Our lives are better because of our children and integrating them into our restaurant life is just as important as our family life.
When we first moved back to Cleveland, the Chef did a kids cooking class at Bar Cento called Cook Chefin'. The Chef would teach a bunch of wee ones how to make pizza and then they would get to make their own pizza for themselves. We loved it so much and it was a great way for us to meet other families in the city we had just moved back too. Since those days we have been dying to do something along the same lines and Noodlecat is the perfect place to start!
On June 24th, 2012 Noodlecat will be hosting it's first every Noodlekids Family Fun Festival!
The festivities will include games, cotton candy, face paint and fun from 1-3 pm! We're even raffling off a Noodlecat gift card and a $200 gift card for a family portrait session with Sarah, just bring a canned good to be entered to win. All collections will be donated to the Cleveland Food Bank. A special Noodlekids menu will also be available for purchase as well as our regular Noodlecat menu. Best known for her work photographing children, Sarah Sloboda documents life in a style that mixes romance and rock-n-roll. Her awards, publications, and clients include Prix de la Photographie Paris, The New York Times, The Knot, Wondertime, Urban Baby, and Sephora, to name a few. Most recently, her signature 3D viewers were written up in Daily Candy.
Now that my kids are a little older I think it's time to get back into the kid game. The Chef and I both love to celebrate food and teach kids about food. It's time those two mixed once again. To get free tickets to the Noodlekids Family Fun Festival click here.
Noodlecat is also looking for some noodlekids to star in their new production. If you've got a kid and they like to slurp then please watch this, then drive to Noodlecat. There's a free choco bun involved.
See y'all cats on the 24th.
