Food: Chef Contos Kitchen & Store

Summer is ice cream season, and kids can go gourmet at Shelburne's Chef Contos Kitchen & Store. In an August 6 cooking class, student-chefs will whip up Tahitian vanilla ice cream and homemade waffle cones. It's one of several kids classes Courtney Contos teaches in her retail kitchen, which opened last spring. Whether she's helping her young students roll out crust for berry pies or make guacamole and salsa for cheesy quesadillas, Contos wants to get them "excited and motivated to cook." Formerly the chef-instructor at the Inn at Essex, Contos has been working with kids for more than 10 years. It's similar to teaching adults, she says, except kids "are just messier."

Chef Contos Kitchen & Store: Cooking classes for kids or teens are held weekly at 65 Falls Road in Shelburne; private birthday parties are also available. For more information, call 497-3942 or visit chefcontos.com.
