Have fun cooking

Little Chefs Saturday Club

Saturday mornings are for 8-11 year olds – a fun introduction to cooking techniques and vocabulary.

During term time, our Little Chefs Club runs on Saturdays between 9.30am and 12, in a 6-week programme. 

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

This popular Saturday morning cookery club has several main goals, including:

  • Learning valuable life skills and practicing them in a safe environment.
  • Experimenting with new ingredients.
  • Identifying functional preparation and cooking techniques to encourage independence when cooking at home.
  • Working independently to create dishes from scratch.
  • Understanding healthy eating and food safety and hygiene.
  • Meeting new people and nurturing communication skills.
  • Working in a team environment.
  • Collecting a variety of recipes with transferrable skills.
  • Creating two dishes in the weekly sessions. 

Our Little Chefs club has been running for over six years and covers:

  • Fruits and vegetables, how to prepare and cook and incorporate with a dish and in a recipe. 
  • Carbohydrates, potatoes, pasta and rice.
  • Basic breads, naan, bread rolls and pitta.
  • Traybakes, selection of basic cakes and biscuits. 
  • Basic sauces: tomato, white sauce and velouté. 
  • Identifying cookery methods of frying, baking, steaming, and boiling.

It’s a natural progression from Little Chefs to our After School Teens Cookery club.
