Teen Taste Cookery Club

Friday evenings are for 12-16 year olds.

During term time, our Teens Club runs on Fridays between 4 and 6pm, in a 6-week programme. 

All ingredients and equipment are provided, along with snacks and refreshments.

The Teens Club is a perfect progression from the Saturday morning Kids Club. If you’re completing the Duke of Edinburgh Award this class is great for the skills section!

The 6-week programme focuses on advancing practical cookery skills from fundamental techniques to more complex knife skills and technical recipes.

We cover:

  • A wide range of food groups
  • Use of a wide variety of ingredients
  • Professional chef techniques and terminology
  • A diverse selection of both sweet and savoury dishes from all over the world.
  • A range of cookery methods both on the stovetop and in the oven.

Sample Dishes include:

  • Doughs: basic and enriched, from bread rolls to croissants
  • Pastry: sweet and savoury pastries, from tarts to pasties 
  • Pasta: dried pasta and fresh pasta (from scratch) 
  • Rice: risottos, rice stews and arancini 
  • Desserts: varied traybakes, biscuits and cheesecakes  
  • Meat and poultry: beef, lamb, pork, and chicken dishes (fried, baked and stewed with accompanying sauces) 
  • Dietary dishes: gluten-free, plant-based, vegetarian 

Our After School Teens club is a great introduction to further education in Hospitality and catering.
