Cooking - Tuesday's 9.30am till 12pm
The aim of our cooking sessions is to promote nutritious, from scratch cooking, teaching the children how to take a handful of fresh, healthy ingredients and confidently turn them into a tasty meal. Over the weeks, we will create a range of sweet and savoury foods, exploring a number of traditional cuisines from home and around the world that the children can then take home with them at the end of the session.
Attendees will have the opportunity to learn the following skills:
Food safety and hygiene
Reading and following recipes
How to adjust a recipe for different portion sizes
How to accurately weigh out ingredients
Health and safety within the kitchen
Knife skills including chopping, dicing, slicing, julienne and mincing
Preserving Food (freezing, dehydrating, canning)
Tidying away and washing up
At the beginning of each session, we will harvest any foods needed for our recipe from our onsite vegetable garden. The children will then work either in small groups or as a whole group to make a tasty, nutritious recipe each week which they will all get to sample and take home with them if they wish. Working in this manner will promote communication and teamwork as well as fostering a passion for food and cooking within the kitchen that will last a lifetime.
What you need to know...
Our weekday sessions are drop off only, so perfect for working parents and for those who want to help your child gain some independence whilst still home educating. If this is an issue, please do get in contact as we can sometimes facilitate parents staying for the first session on a case by case basis.
This session runs from 9.30 am until 12 pm with a short break midway through.
Please ensure that your child is dressed suitably for the session. We recommend old clothes that you don't mind getting a little mucky! Please also bring a water bottle and a plastic tub with a tight fitting lid so that your child can take some food home with them.
There is also the option of staying for lunch if you would like to spend the whole day with us. Please select this option upon booking and bring a packed lunch with you.
A waiver MUST be completed and signed before the child can attend their first session. This will be emailed to you shortly after booking, please contact us as soon as possible if you do not receive it.
