“Good explanations, helping us to think about ways to engage the children”
“Very informative and inspiring”
“It was good brainstorming the different techniques in words we use to do with cooking: chopping, mixing etc”

Kids Kitchen has been running carer and child cookery sessions since 2011: adults and children working together to cook something from scratch: usually savoury, often lunch. There is always opportunity to get to know each other and what we are cooking, and always opportunity to play. P1010455

Now we are sharing what we’ve learnt through interactive workshops; to enable others to run their own Kids Kitchen workshop in their local community.

You will learn – and share your skills in:

  • IMG_1798The venue: finding and creating a suitable space

  • What we’ll cook: How to fit your menu in the time; turning any meal into a successful session; sourcing affordable AND sustainable ingredients
  • Managing money: Typical costs and what to consider

At the end of the session you will get a Kids Kitchen Pack including marketing materials, template spreadsheets, recipe sheets and ideas, and session plans.
