Panera Bread offers an introductory culinary experience for kids ages 5-12 called Bakers-In-Training. This program is perfect for the aspiring bakers in your house, classroom, scout group, kids club, or birthday party.

Your "Baker in Training" will be taken on a journey through a Panera Bread bakery-cafe to learn the essentials of kitchen safety, proper food handling and food preparation. Your child will learn the fundamentals of our bread-making craft by stretching & scoring their very own French baguette to bake onsite and bring home. Plus, all B.I.T Kids will be outfitted with their own paper baking hat and apron!

Groups must register online with a minimum of 10 children in order to set up a class. Classes last approximately an hour to an hour and a half and are available Monday-Friday with start times from 2:00pm-4:30pm.

Register below for your chance to win a "class" for Bakers in training. You have until April 26th to register, after that a winner will be chosen to take a group of 10-15 kids to Panera for their Bakers in Training program.

Good luck!
