The school holidays are here! If you’ve got little (or big) kids at home then you might like to join us at Cookery School or try out some of our recipes and have a family cook up at home.
Classes and Courses
Our Cooking Camp for Teens is a 5 day intensive cook up that’s just perfect for teenage chefs in the making who would love to learn the principles of cooking before heading off on a gap year, to college or university or simply to develop their passion for food.
A day making delicious classic Pasta, Risotto & Gnocchi from scratch will fuel anyone’s love of Italian cuisine as well as deliver a fantastic repertoire of favourite recipes, perfect to make for friends and family.
Cook’s Certificate in Food and Wine
If someone you know is looking for something more comprehensive such as a career in the kitchen, then our next Cook’s Certificate in Food and Wine starts in September and will equip any keen cook with the skills to find work in a professional kitchen. We have some brilliant restaurant connections in London and past students have worked for Caprice restaurants, Honey & Co and Ottolenghi, to name a few.
“We’ve had some brilliant Cookery School candidates come to join our teams at Honey & Co. They’ve all been dedicated, enthusiastic and lovely people above all – the perfect fit for our talented teams. We would love to recruit more graduates in the future!” Honey & Co
Bring a Child for Free
Did you know that we offer parents the option to book a class and bring one child for free, or alternatively, if you book for your child and you need to accompany them, you can do this for free. We have a limit for two accompanied bookings per class and we will send you a short guide on how you can engage with the class to ensure everyone gets the most out of the session and little ones are on their best behaviour. Get in touch to find out more.
Cooking at home
If you love the idea of cooking at home with the kids but need some advice and recipes then look no further. This is why we think cooking with kids is such a great activityand here you’ll find our four top tips which will help you think about and prepare for a cooking session with little ones.
Check out our family-friendly recipes which are a great starting point and include everything from bread and a simple tomato sauce (perfect for pizza, pasta or a summer fish stew), to a chicken tikka and banana ice cream. Alternatively if it’s jammy dodgers or brownies that are going to get the kids excited about creating and baking then we’ve got those recipes too!
Conversations around the table
Inspiration in the kitchen… We have followed and admired Claudia Roden for years and enjoyed Diana Henry’s piece in Delicious earlier this year. Her recipes, stories and writing can certainly inspire any young cook.
The lacklustre curriculum for food and cookery education in schools has led to some institutions to take exciting alternative routes that include growing, harvesting, cooking, eating and sharing the schools’ food!
