Thursday’s at 5.30PM
Every Thursday we get together to make a family meal. Ingredients and equipment is sent out a week before so you have plenty of time to source. Each meal is carefully chosen to ensure that it is nutritionally balanced, easy to get ingredients and good value.
Children love the fact that they can create a meal for their entire family to enjoy. This is providing our children skills for life. They will learn:
- How to make a meal from scratch
- How to create a basic sauce that can be adapted to make many other dishes
- Different culture signature dishes
- Traditional family favourites
- Food safety in the kitchen
- Food hygiene, storage and shelf life.
There are no age limits for this class, we have people from age 3-83 join us. If your child is younger they will need some assistance for the hob work.
Amazing!! My son has joined and has been taking part in online lessons for the past few weeks. Apart from the fact that he really enjoys it and we love the tasty treats he makes, it has taught him some great cooking skills, taught him bits and bobs about why certain ingredients are used and given him the confidence to give things a go on his own. Last week he watched a little clip online about how to make pancakes and went off to get the ingredients from the fridge and cupboard and got going, and this weekend he decided to make us all sandwiches for lunch all on his own. He’s learnt to use some of the ‘scary’ kitchen equipment safely - knives, the oven, the hob ...all with just a little adult supervision. Thanks, Nikki, your lessons are amazing and your patience and kindness with the children (and us parents) makes the lessons a fun hour. I would 100% recommend getting involved ! 👨🍳❤️
