party guests can take these home after the party.
4) Ingredients and Supplies: All ingredients and supplies are included along with paper

to celebrating with you!

"I want to take a moment to personally thank you and Chef Nancy for such a wonderful
and memorable 10th birthday for my Eden. She is still talking about how much fun she
had with her friends. She was still talking about her Lil Chef experience last night at
bedtime. You and Chef Nancy were very professional and most importantly very
personable. Eden will never forget her Lil' Chef experience and promise you this is not
the last time you will see us. She is already asking about camp at Lil Chef."
Thank you again!
