If your child loves to eat and have fun, you want them enrolled in our kid cooking classes. More important than having fun, your child will begin to learn a fresh and healthy alternative to foods. We use all-natural and healthy ingredients in every dish. Our menus are designed to introduce your child to some of their new favourite meals together with their loved parents and families. Our Kid Cooking Classes are fun and educational - parents, guardians, and grandparents can join the class. Your experience would be different with your kids and have some fun cooking with them. If you feel your kids and teens are more advance in cooking, please book a private class from our range of masterclasses.

Why cooking with us? We use natural fresh ingredient method, we have coined the phrase “I Tried and I Liked It”. We found that when kids are involved in the preparation of their own meal, they will try and like foods they would not have otherwise given a chance. Children and their parents can learn in a range of classes from sushi classes to dumplings. If cooking and eating are one of life’s greatest pleasures, teach them young. There’s so much to learn through cooking skills that go way beyond the aesthetic value of food. Measuring, weighing, estimating, guesstimating, socializing, learning about tastes, textures; the list goes on. Whatever the case, with expertise in cooking on family food programs, we have seen and helped hundreds of families become better at teaching food at home. Our chef has a working with children check.
