As part of this month’s Gourmet Glasgow 2010 culinary festival, Cookie, the award-winning eatery in Glasgow’s southside, has launched an ‘Eat What Your Parents Eat’ initiative.

The promotion means that, between 5pm and 7pm on week days throughout the month of August, children up to the age of 12 will be offered a free meal if they eat what their parents are eating with the aim being to promote healthy eating for all the family.

Cookie co-owner, Domenico Del Priore, said, “Every parent knows that kids can be fussy eaters. From the outset, Cookie has been keen to promote healthy eating in a welcoming atmosphere for all family members. Our open kitchen has been designed to enable families – kids as well as parents – to see their dishes prepared and learn about food preparation and nutrition.

“Parents can sometimes be put off taking their kids to eat out when they know that many restaurants’ kids menus are restricted to little more than chicken nuggets and fish fingers. We want to revolutionise our kids’ eating habits and promote a healthier, more varied, diet and it is our hope that our ‘Eat What Your Parents Eat’ initiative will do just that.”

Meanwhile, Cookie is also offering a two for the price of one offer for all lunchtime pasta dishes on week days throughout the duration of Gourmet Glasgow.

With a range of events to choose from, Gourmet Glasgow, the annual culinary festival featuring special events and dining offers, has something for all tastes and budgets with events running at different restaurants throughout the month. It is organised by the Glasgow Restaurateurs’ Association, the organisation comprising over 60 of the best culinary venues in the city.

Recently named Glasgow Newcomer of the Year 2010 for breaking the mould of local eating and drinking, Cookie seeks to break down the barriers between food production, distribution, preparation and consumption.

With a focus on seasonal food and local produce made available at an accessible price, Cookie is a club, a bar, an off license and a food and wine importer, it is also a gallery promoting design and art.

Cookie is based at 72 Nithsdale Road, Pollokshields, Glasgow. To book a table as part of the ‘Eat What Your Parents Eat’ initiative or to take advantage of the two for one lunchtime pasta offer call Cookie on 0141 423 1411.
