Nicola and Melissa had another great session in August:
“We had 8 grown ups and 14 kids to feed… but was lots of fun. We made two types of Turkish Borek with a roasted red pepper dip and there was melon sorbet for a post clean-up treat!”
We’ve got another workshop for those interested in or already taking part in our Community Kids Kitchen sessions.
Completely free for volunteers!
Running a Kids Kitchen Session
10am-1pm Friday 18th September
Arcola Theatre, Ashwin Street, Dalston Junction
Playworker provided – the workshop is for adults, but if you need to you can bring your child; our playworker Jess will be with the kids in a separate space in the same room.
There will be people there from all the areas we’re supporting, so a great opportunity to make plans for your own sessions or find out more from people who’ve already started. We’ll look at:
Bookings and pricing
Tips for keeping both adults and children engaged
There’s also a opportunity to accredit what you’re doing with an AQA award,
through the workshop and running/supporting Kids Kitchen sessions.

Thanks so much for today!! Both my kids loved it! Excellent value and a beautiful menu!
Nicky and Melissa ran their third session in Walthamstow this week, this time at Nicky’s house. Nicky says….
“It was a great success, a really fun vibe. The kids all had a great time and all the food was demolished! We made berry coconut ice cream (in cones for the kiddies), carrot and courgette spaghetti with sun dried tomato pesto, and a giant sharing platter of crudites with jam jars of dressing to dip in.”
Nicky managed this after only an hour’s sleep with a sick one-year-old! More photos below.
If you’d like to be part of sessions in Walthamstow – either coming along, or helping out, please get in touch by email and sign up to the mailing list.
