Cooking With Kids - Little Whisks Workshop

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to be the guest chef at a school holiday cooking workshop that took place at the fabulous Discovery Nursery based in outer North/West London. The cooking program called 'Little Whisks' and was attended by a group of budding chefs aged 3-5 who were looking to practice the culinary excellence whilst on school holidays.



The workshop was brilliant. It was so much more than just teaching them to cook. I taught them about different ingredients and measurements. We practiced colours and counting. We spoke about healthy foods and identified 'sometimes' foods. They also learnt a lot about patience, listening and working as a team, as well as being very proud of themselves when they were able to get their hands dirty and work on their own.


It really taught me so much and I can't wait until baby girl is old enough that we can cook together. I'm sure it won't be long!

We baked something different every day for a whole week. I used all recipes from my blog. I often speak about how quick and easy my recipes are and the proof is here. If a 3 year old can do it, anyone can.

Heres what we baked.

Day 1: Baked pancake bites. We baked tomato and cheese, strawberry, lemon and coconut and peanut butter and cinnamon pancakes varieties.





Day 3: Mini rainbow layer cakes. I told you they're not as difficult as they look!



Day 4: Tomato and spring onion quiches. I used my mini quiche recipe and altered the filling.


Day 5: Oat and choc chip cookies. I used my cookie in a jar recipe minus the use of the jar!


My week with the children was so much fun. Not only did I teach them, but they taught me so much about what goes on inside their little brains and the best ways to interact with them. I've often felt as though my alternate career could have been as a teacher and this has absolutely reaffirmed that. This was my first children's cooking workshop but there most certainly will be more to come.

  1. This is so beautiful! One of my fears is that becauseI don't like cooking I won't foster a love of food in Roscoe. Hopefully we can get to one of your workshops one day!

    1. Thank you. You could start by just getting him to join in on some super easy recipes. Who knows, perhaps he'll have the love for both of you and he'll be cooking for you! Will keep you posted on any more workshops that I do. None in the planning stages at the moment x
