Last month I had the opportunity to participate in an amazing event with my children called “Fairmont Cooks With Kids” at the gorgeous Fairmont Hotel right here in Winnipeg.
Once we made our way through the maze behind the offices of the Fairmont (pretty cool I must say), we were introduced to the kitchen and its many areas. We had a mini tour and it was so cute to watch all of the kids jaws drop after seeing so many pots, pans and utensils!
There were mini-stations set up for the kids with their own cool aprons that stated “Chefs in Training”. utensils, big balls of cookie dough and decorative treats. We were ready to bake!
My daughters were the oldest among the group so they had fun helping the younger kids but they were also given the honour of manning the oven by Chef Tim Palmer!
Their cookies were placed in the oven with care and as we waited for them to bake, we were treated to ice cream with access to multiple toppings! Yep, you bet I had some!
After what seemed like only a few minutes, the cookies were ready! Unfortunately some of the toppings Kiki used couldn’t withstand the heat haha!
These cookies were DELICIOUS and so fun to make!
After all was said and done , the moms walked away with a nice token of appreciation for participating as well. I loved the yummy flavoured teas!
The Fairmont may not be the first hotel that comes to mind if you’re looking to book a trip with children but after this visit, it’s clear that they are just as accommodating to families with kids as they are to business men and women. It’s so funny to talk to my youngest daughter about the event and know that her primary thought was that Justin Bieber stayed in that hotel! At least she knows something about the hotel, right? The Fairmont offers many activities and accommodations for those who do stay there with children. From babysitting services to special meals, the concierge staff are wonderful and very knowledgeable about kid-friendly activities in the hotel and Winnipeg in general!
So, if you’re planning a trip to the ‘Peg and you have children in tow, don’t leave the Fairmont off of your list!
