Les Petits Chefs make Crispy Vegetable Cakes from In the French kitchen with kids

The Petits Chefs are back for the final term of the school year! Typically, the first few weeks of club are a little all over the place as boys are still trying out for teams and don’t know if they’ve made it for a week or two so I never really know who is showing […]

Happy New Year! As you read this I am winging my way back to Toronto (and ridiculous sub-zero temperatures) after two wonderful weeks with my mum and dad, extended family and various friends in Sydney and Adelaide.
