Kiddos in the Kitchen

Kiddos in the Kitchen

There’s nothing better than floury faces, sticky fingers, mucky aprons and messy benchtops when you’re a kiddo. Kitchens are a gastronomic wonderland to taste, learn and discover!

From learning with your mum when you’re too small to reach the benchtop, to cooking for yourself in your poor uni days and then teaching your own children years later. The first recipe you ever learn to cook stays with you for life, they are like stories to pass on and share.

The kitchen isn’t just a place to learn to cook, recipes are a great engaging way to teach kids both reading and mathematic skills.

If you’re not so keen on scrubbing the cupcake tin and sweeping the crumbs off the floor post-baking apocalypse, book your little one in for a cooking class!
