and 10 French malls from the Klépierre Group have teamed up to host a series of live events called “Playfood” – aimed at offering gourmet, accessible, fun and shareable culinary experiences to kids and families.
The “Playfood” live events will tour France from October into 2023. Each event will last from Wednesday to Sunday, and will feature three dedicated areas, each branded by a Chefclub Kids character and each offering different food-related experiences.
At Maurice’s Diner, families can enjoy and participate in making trompe l'oeil (fool the eye) recipes, food workshops, family culinary battles, castings for Chefclub Kids Creators and demonstrations by a trompe l'oeil food influencer.
The Carlton’s Quiz area will host a TV-style quiz show about food featuring a Sweet and Sour team that will compete by answering questions.

Chefclub will also leverage and promote each date via Facebook and Instagram stories as well as on its French website.
