Hurry, hurry: don’t forget to book the kids in to my Mini Chef kids cooking classes during the January school holidays.
We’ll be making a wide range of delicious, nutritious dishes including homemade chicken noodle soup, guacamole, fruit kebabs, sushi, chicken yakitori, chicken pesto pasta, spaghetti bolognese, tiramisu, watermelon baskets, banana bread and chocolate buttermilk cake.
My kids cooking classes aim to teach children to prepare a wholesome, nutritious meal which they love to eat and can reproduce easily at home. Menus and dates are here. I hold my classes in my home in a beautiful setting which spills out into the garden where the children and I have fun looking at and identifying the various herbs and vegetable I grow, weather (and season) permitting.
In my classes we don’t attempt to do celebrity-chef restaurant-style food, though a couple of my students have done so well, they were in the finals for Junior MasterChef. The classes are a mix of demonstration and hands-on.
We cook savoury dishes kids love to eat and can cook at home themselves – and we also indulge in a few wicked things! Hygiene, nutrition – and loads of laughs – are all on the agenda. The children eat the food we have prepared at the end of the class and take home whatever is left over.
Cooking Classes are held at my private home in Cammeray, near North Sydney, during school holiday periods, and after-school on Friday afternoons. The classes are aimed at children from the ages of 8-14. Class size is a minimum of 6 and maximum of 8. If parents wish to join the class, there will be a charge – please contact me to find out details.
