Children's Courses


Nursery / Pre-school

We have plenty of pre-school options available including our popular 'Non-cook cooking lessons' that are tailored to using foods that can be prepared in a classroom environment rather than a kitchen. Dishes include pasta salad, houmous dips with pitta bread and fruit kebabs. The emphasis is on safety, fun, confidence, inspiring interest and learning new things about food.

Contact us to discuss other nursery and pre-school options.


Key Stage 1 & Key Stage 2

Cooking for the curriculum courses may include themes such as Making Recipes From World War II or other periods throughout history. Bringing history to life through food will ensure things are not easily forgotten, such as using garden vegetables to supplement sugar rations by making wartime carrot cookies. Simple cooking using ingredients from the school garden, or other local sources, will involve literacy and numeracy skills as well as history, science, biology and geography. We can also provide Food Safety with a strong scientific element. Previous Year 6 experiments have included using a bag of glitter and a damp cloth to simulate the spread of bacteria - a serious message packaged in a fun and memorable task! We are also able to run Healthy Lifestyle Sessions and are experienced in the preparation of Healthy School Newsletters.

Contact us to discuss or arrange a school course or input.


After-School Cooking Clubs

Our main focus is to inform children to make healthier food choices and gain the confidence and enthusiasm to cook safely. Every child is able to take home what they have cooked during the club session, and there's a certain level of structure to the club, for example children being given folders containing relevant paperwork on each session. Children will quickly learn to make food ranging from fruit smoothies and flapjack to vegetable samosas and pizza.

Contact us to arrange an after-school cooking club or to train to run your own club.


Private Courses

We are able to offer a wide range of children's courses tailored to your specifications.

Adult's Courses

We offer a range of courses for adults, catering to all requirements and abilities.

Clients we have previously worked with include corporate groups, mothers, groups of friends, and adults with learning disabilities.

You can choose from one of the previously run courses listed below or we can create a specific course to meet your taste and skills. Adult cookery sessions can be arranged as a one-off event or as a series. The price will depend on your exact requirements, so please contact us for further details.


Cooking from Scratch

We will guarantee you will be able to cook a great meal without using anything processed, or from a jar or tin. All ingredients used in cooking are farm fresh and fabulous. We promise the taste alone will be enough to convert you to cooking from scratch time and again! Initial dishes to build your confidence might include spagetti bolognese and fresh soup.

Contact us to discuss your requirements.


Around the World

This workshop will give you the confidence to add some dishes with a foreign twist to your repertoire. How about getting grips with a spinach and sweet potato curry and spicy Indian rice or paella, followed by a classic tiramisù, or gulab jamun with summer fruits?

Contact us to discuss your requirements.


Delicious Soups

A great soup can be a lifesaver, a healthy meal and a fantastic way to use up food that you might otherwise end up throwing away. Don't miss this workshop as it promises to keep you and your family warm throughout the winter with delicious flavours including carrot and coriander or leek and potato.
