What is the course about?
This is a five session course of cooking for adults and children. An adult will be able to bring one child with them to a session. The child needs to be aged between 7 and 11 years. Each session is structured so that you will both learn and practice recipes that can be repeated at home with friends and family. The collection of recipes have been chosen to enable the child with you to help you in the kitchen and learn the fun of cooking. The great thing too is that you have a very flexible purchase - session by session or 2, 3, 4 or 5 together. If you purchase a ticket it can be used by any adult and child (aged 7 to 11) and if you purchase more than one it again can be used by any adult and child (it does not have to be you and the same child does not have to come each week). The price is for one adult and one child - one session = £120; two sessions = £190; 3 sessions = £280; four sessions = £350; and five sessions = £400.
