World-famous Italian chef will demonstrate kid-friendly meal in Mission Viejo Nov. 3

Chef Gino Campagna, a culinary master adored by children and adults alike, will give a special cooking demonstration on Friday, November 3 when he discusses his latest book “Chef Gino’s Taste Test Challenge.”

Families are invited to see this internationally renowned chef in action beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the City Hall Saddleback Room, just across from the Mission Viejo Library at 200 Civic Center.

Chef Gino, the master chef at Piccolo Chef Culinary School in Culver City, will demonstrate a simple recipe kids can savor at home. He will also help children explore the wonderful world of food with fun facts.

This talented chef has been teaching families how to appreciate and prepare fresh food for more than 15 years while his popularity continues to soar. In 2014, he starred in a media blitz for National Nutrition Month launched by the Got Milk? Campaign.  Using his boundless and contagious energy, Chef Gino starred in 22 live TV segments; hosted six live events; and was interviewed by dozens of radio stations and media outlets.  Today, he is the host of AOL KitchenDaily.com’s “Kitchen Kids” and he starred in “Gino’s Kitchen” for the Disney Channel.

The Friends of the Mission Viejo Library are hosting this free event, so reserve your seats today by emailing your name and the number in your party to libreference@cityofmissionviejo.org. Chef Gino’s new book will be sold onsite by A Whale of A Tale Bookshoppe.
