Whole Foods Market Teams Up With Chef Jehangir Mehta To Create ‘The Kids Food Adventure’

Whole Foods Market and Chef Jehangir Mehta, “The Next Iron Chef” runner-up and executive chef/owner of Graffiti Food & Wine Bar in New York City, have joined forces to create The Kids Food Adventure with Chef Jehangir Mehta, a series of hands-on classes to encourage parents and children to be more adventurous with food while making healthy choices.

Mehta kicks off the multi-city class tour in New York City at Whole Foods Market’s 95 E. Houston Street location this Saturday, April 10 from 10 a.m. to noon.

Children and their parents will go on a “Journey with Jehangir,” participating in interactive store tours, educational and creative cooking demos, and conversations designed to encourage healthy, adventurous cooking at home. The program is designed for children ages 6 to 11 and the space is limited. After the kick-off in New York City, which costs $30 per child accompanied by an adult, Mehta will take the show on the road with stops at Whole Foods Market locations in Austin, Boston, Denver, Los Angeles and New Orleans.

Details and event dates will be posted online next week at www.wholefoodsmarket.com/kidsfoodaventure along with tips, recipes, shopping lists, blog postings and videos.
