The young chefs will experience a world of hands-on culinary exploration with their peers. We’ll engage the 11-16 year olds in essential fundamentals such as basic knife skills, following a recipe, monitoring cooking temperatures and times, and kitchen safety and of course the exciting bit ….creating great food they’ll love to eat and share with family and friends.
Share your love of cooking with budding ‘chefs’ by giving them a foundation that will benefit them for a lifetime with an experience they’ll never forget. At the end of the class each young chef will take home the recipes.
The young chefs will eat what they make for lunch (and take anything left over home if you’d like)
Previous Menus Include:
- Steamed Sea Bream With Lime And Chilli
- Deconstructing A Whole Chicken And What To Do With The Bits (Chef Demo)
- Chocolate Fondant With Salted Caramel Cremè Anglais
The class starts with a coffee and a chat with the chef about the class ahead, and then it’s through to the kitchens for demonstrations of the dishes you’ll be cooking. Next it’s time to roll up your sleeves get on an apron, learn new skills and enjoy replicating the dishes under our chef’s expert instruction.
We firmly believe that great cooking isn’t about recipes, it’s about techniques and you’ll work together with other students in a fun, hands-on environment led by our professional chef instructors. In every class, you will get hands-on experience throughout the class. For some dishes the chefs will have done some of the prep for you so that you can maximise your hands-on time with cooking and learning
We don’t give you a recipe print out during the class, as we want you enjoy the experience rather than simply following a recipe. We will email you the recipe pack after the class. Our chefs are always happy to answer any questions during and after the class.
At the end of your cookery experience, you can retire to the dining room to enjoy the fruits of your labour a soft drink. The 3 hours class includes time to sit down and enjoy your culinary creations. However if you do wish to take any food that you have cooked home with you, please bring suitable containers.
Please note – we are unable to accept any responsibility/liability for food taken out of the cookery school.
