A Cottage Cooks cooking course offers the perfect solution for children who want to learn how to cook in their own home. The course is a fantastic way to get children experimenting with wholesome, freshly prepared, seasonal food. Even the fussiest of eaters will try out the dishes they make and it also does wonders for their self-esteem. Children of any age just love the sense of achievement from having cooked a family meal.
We offer courses for 3 age groups, 3-6, 7-10 and 11+, with recipes tailored specifically to meet the needs of each age group. The recipes are usually for 4 people and they are all suitable for the entire family – it’s not just food for kids!
Upon joining, each cook is sent out the Cottage Cooks welcome pack, containing:
fabulous denim apron (with adjustable neck tape for smaller members)
a set of matching oven gloves
a baking tray (type may vary)
a Cottage Cooks recipe folder
information sheets on kitchen safety and hygiene
glossary of cooking terms
web access to our Kids Cooking Club area of the website (for food information, fun, games and to access additional recipes)
and of course, the recipes and newsletter for that month
The monthly packs are sent out so they reach you on the first Friday of each month, ready for a weekend of cooking fun! Each pack contains:
at least 3 laminated recipe cards - typically for a starter, main course and dessert
kitchen utensil, to use in the recipes
newsletter - so the cooks can share their success with other members
