Protect Family Dinnertime

Tom's Diners' Chef Allen EmmonsWe are rolling out a program with a series of cooking demonstration videos that future Tom's Diner chef Allen Emmons and Owner Tom Seretis will be hosting, that will show how kids can act as sous chefs in meal preparation. Children are more apt to be receptive to eating something they created themselves and this program aims at building self-esteem in the process. Most importantly, it stresses the importance of turning off all electronics and having the entire family sit at the dinner table to enjoy the fruits of their labor. Studies show this effort benefits the children tremendously.
