Here at Kitchen Food School we love teaching children how to cook. After all, we think it’s so important to developing their palates early, teaching them where food comes from and how to grow your own.
Children need to be encouraged to be adventurous and curious about their food, empowering them to make healthy and nutritious choices about their lifestyle and diets as well as having the confidence and skills to cook some great, tasty dishes!
Our classes take place once a month on a Saturday. The classes are fun and informal, whilst teaching basic culinary skills, some tasty recipes and of course, covering simple nutrition. We offer two classes – one for Teens and and for Children.
Lots of children love cooking. It’s time at home doing something together. Food brings families together and children love being part of it. We have been running children’s classes regularly for two years now and we have seen our pupils grow in confidence and ability. Their grown-up palates and sense of food-adventure amaze us and we know that cookery skills are the first steps to making healthy food choices. We offer your child a chance to learn about food, try new foods and gain confidence using cookers and utensils.
We offer the occasional cookery classes for the emerging cook as part of our Taster Tuesdays. Classes are designed for 12-16-year-olds who are showing promise in the kitchen. Classes take students through a beginners cookery course with basic culinary skills in meat and fish preparation, baking and bread, stocks and sauces. A great start to a culinary career or just an accomplished kitchen cook.
