Cooking Summer School for Children 8 to 12

This is an opportunity for children aged 8 to 12 to spend three days with us learning to cook a lovely variety of dishes with a wide range of cooking skills. They will have fun and learn valuable cooking skills for life. And we’ll gently encourage the cautious ones to try new dishes and flavours!

Each day we will make one or more dishes in the morning to have for lunch, followed by a dish to take home at the end of the day. Dishes can be adjusted for dietary needs or preferences but please let us know in advance if that is the case. We will break up the day with times to relax and walks to the beach.

Here is the planned menu, although we may adjust it a little. It will be similar to this:

Day 1: Beef burgers, vegetable pasta salad and hand made oven baked chips; berry & soft fruit fool; rich butter half-moon rolls

Day 2: Thai style sticky chicken wings; chicken pad Thai; egg fried rice; coconut cake

Day 3: Pasta from scratch with mushroom & sausage sauce; pesto frittata with goats cheese or cheddar; strawberry pana cota

This summer cooking school will suit children who already have an interest in cooking and want to take it further. They do not need to have extensive experience or already feel confident in their cooking skills – we will guide and support them all the way so that they can enjoy the experience and absorb the many skills they will practise. This will be for a small group of 8 children.

We can adjust menus for children who don’t eat meat or have special dietary requirements but please give us a ring first if that is the case. Or if you just want to know more before booking, give us a call on 01304 362288.
