Kids Courses At Cooks, The Carlton School Of Food

Hot on the success of their launch in May, Cooks, the Carlton School of Food is thrilled to announce a new selection of junior classes during July and August - a great way to keep the kids busy during the long school holidays. Cooks will introduce budding young chefs to a series of fun, informative and inspirational courses, priced from £30 per child. Experienced chef, James Holden, previously at the Savoy in London, will guide children from the age of eight through an unforgettable culinary experience.

According to James "seeing is deceiving, tasting is believing," and to prove this, he begins each of his classes with an exciting, taste and sensory activity. This helps children to explore and recognise different tastes on the tongue, helping them to appreciate what they will be cooking later in the day.

On the 23rd July in the first of the three children's courses, Cooks will host children for 'Pasta Fun' designed specifically for eight to eleven year olds. Novice chefs are invited to roll up their sleeves and get mixing, stirring, stretching and kneading to make simple pasta dishes from scratch.

Children can then join 'Tea Time Treats' on the 6th August and get busy baking, to create a mini afternoon tea in just three hours, in the baking class for 12 to 14 year olds.

In the last in the series, James will guide young adults - from the age of 15 upwards - flying the nest, through cooking curry to freezing food the right way, in the class entitled 'Leaving Home' on the 27th August.

Children do not need any cooking experience and the classes promise to teach new found skills and offer techniques across a range of different cooking styles. The day also includes a light lunch and the chance to take their tasty treats home.
