Exploring a range and purpose of culinary skills, giving you the confidence to love cooking; adding the spice of fun into the pot, for a tastier result.
My favourite saying, in response to students who say they can’t cook, is: “if you can feed yourself, you can cook yourself." Children just get stuck in, chopping and mixing messy delights, creating without inhibition. This course aims to encourage our intuition to be our guide, not necessarily sticking to the “wrong” or “right” way of cooking. So these classes combine the creative freedom of the child with the parent’s know-how and teaching support, to cook deliciously simple meals for all the family to enjoy.
With a background in special needs teaching, I remain interested in how cooking is not only an essential life skill, but also how the kitchen provides an ideal classroom to enhance personal as well as cognitive development.
We all know that at any good party the kitchen is the best place to be: the heart of a home. It makes sense then for this to be the place to first consider our well-being; cooking good food in our friendly and supportive groups is sustenance for mind, body and soul.
