Cookery Club is a course where the children are able to experiment with food and use a variety of recipes to develop various skills.

Fruit and vegetables in season are used, so that we can talk about where our food comes from, about the seasons and how this can influence what we cook according to cost.  Measuring skills are also applied, so that children learn how to measure out ingredients and talk about different units of measure used in the kitchen.   Hygiene and safety in the kitchen are also taught, including how to safely and correctly use equipment, knives, cooking utensils.

At the end of the course, children will bring home a folder of the recipes they have cooked and there will also be space in their folders to add their own recipes.

We hope the Club gives the children an opportunity to have fun with food while also being taught a variety of life skills.
