Rookie Cooks – cookery classes for kids

Cooking is fun – especially if you’re between seven and twelve. Things to squeeze, knead, squirt, whisk, slice, grate and dice … and that’s before you get to enjoy the results!

There are so many things kids learn from cookery classes.

They learn to follow recipes, to think ahead, weigh things accurately, chop things evenly and act sensibly around sharp knives and hot stoves.

But they also learn to be creative. They learn when you can improvise with a recipe and when you can’t. They learn to eat things that they think they don’t like (because everything tastes better when you’ve made it yourself).

They learn that good, nutritious food is easy to make and completely delicious, and that working together leads to making new friends.

And – hooray – they learn that clearing up the kitchen is an essential part of being a great cook.

Do join us – we look forward to welcoming you.
