Our Saturday Cooking Clubs for youngsters are very popular but there is only so much you can cook (and learn) in two hours so here is a day course during the school holidays where there will be the chance to build on their skills and knowledge - and have some fun in the process. They will learn how to use knives safely, handle ingredients correctly, timings and food know how.   This is REAL cooking - an essential skill for life.

"What a lot (a brother and sister) they learned in such a short space of time and I'm loving that they're so able to translate it into everyday cooking." Yzanne Martin Hallett

During the course  they will learn the principles behind the dishes they create.

On the menu today:

  • Beautiful Bread
  • a Scintalling  Salad
  • a Delicious Dinner
  • a Perfect Pudding

After lunch there will be a Baking Challenge - just like GBBO, but without the cameras and the stress!

The class is a busy hands-on session.  All ingredients, equipment and aprons will be provided PLUS we will do the washing up!

Whatever the youngsters skill level, the small group size (maximum 10) will enable them to get plenty of attention, whether they want to be helped or stretched.  They will be working in a frendly and sociable environment.

There will be regular breaks for refreshments plus lunch and there will be plenty of impressive goodies to take home.

The session can be made suitable for vegetarians - let us know when you book.
