I have been asked at least 1000 times over the last 6 years to do some kids cooking classes and now they are here. In my new workshop and photography space in Glenorchy less than 15 minutes from the Hobart CBD.
These classes will be suitable for every level of cooking even if your child has no kitchen experience they will be fine. I ran a 0-4 year old cooking program in a primary when Maggie was young for years and even the little kids in this group can find something safe to do like rolling pasta or rolling meatballs.
They will learn a bunch of important skills over the term including:
*different cooking techniques like panfrying and baking
and loads more!
While I am not a nutritionist I avoid talking about health benefits as this is not my area of training I focus on delicious food but we can all agree learning to cook our own food using whole foods is the healthiest way to eat. We use Veggies, meat/fish healthy fats like extra virgin olive oil and whatever else we need to make that taste good.
My genius Idea for these kid’s classes is the children will take home a meal for the family each week, saves the parents cooking that night! Yes, the kids would probably prefer a class with cakes and biscuits but they are normally happy enough to do that at home and I wanted to offer something that is great value.
Here is our menu for term one, this may change depending on what is available. We can easily do Gluten Free adaptions (most of it is anyway). The kids enrolled may choose to make something else.
Baked Salmon with a noodle salad
Chicken/Beef or fish lasagne and green salad
Koftas with Greek salad and tzatziki
Butter chicken with rice steamed greens
Potato salad with smoked or baked salmon
Green Chicken or Fish curry
I’m not a parenting expert, I admit I don’t know much but I do know that but if you’ve got a child who may be a bit choosy NOT exposing them to different foods wouldn’t be helping. Your worst-case scenario is they probably will try what they cook and maybe even surprise you and enjoy it, but at least you’ve got your own delicious dinner cooked and some left overs for packed lunches. You may not believe the amount of kids who I hear that will try something new when they make it themselves.
