WEDNESDAY @ TARADALE & HAVELOCK NOW SOLD OUT

October 2020 COOKING CLASSES

Welcome little cooks & associated grown ups!  

We are off on another wacky adventure in the kitchen this spring.  Let's get in early and practice some of those delicious Christmas goodies and gift treats.  Take a creepy trip into the world of severed feet and eyeballs for dessert. Then we relax into the global celebrations with unusual ethnic dishes from around the world.  Spring is such a beautiful time of the year with gorgeous fresh produce here in the Bay - so lets use it!  And to finish the week, let get sticky!  Parent, whanau & carers can join us on Friday for a huge range of kebabs/skewers of every variety savory and sweet.

Mon: Springy Day – Mini carrot cakes, minty lemonade, spring vegetable lasagne &sticky sweet fruit tarts

Tue: Creepy Day - Teeth sandwiches, ghoul-ade, witch’s fingers, feet loaf, swamp slime and eyeballs

Wed:  Xmasy Day- Stained glass biscuits, pizza trees, candy cane cookies, mini plum puddings & popcorn snowflakes.

Thu: Worldly Day – We celebrate Global festive dishes including Cinca de Mayo, Diwali, Easter and Chinese New Year

Fri: Sticky Day - Kiwi BBQ meets crazy kebabs koftas, yakitori, satays, juicy sweet skewers and spring fresh salads

Dishes may be subject to change due to costs or availability.  Each day will have vegetarian, gluten free and dairy options available

Each morning starts with a health and safety briefing, covering kitchen hygiene, kitchen safety, knife safety, location of first aid kits and instructions around evacuation and earthquake procedures.

Then we're straight into the prep for the shared lunch and often we make a dish for the morning tea.

After morning tea, we continue with the preparation of multiple dishes for a shared lunch each day, which is served between 12pm to 1pm - depending on how the morning goes. We don't rush to be ready for a specific time frame - until Friday, when the parents come to lunch!  After lunch the afternoons are more relaxed - we recognise that it is the children's holiday break and they have options around garden activities, craft, slime making (100% natural slime, no chemicals involved) and cooking. 

Classes are $65 per day or $295 for the entire week, all food (incl. lunch & morning tea) craft, gardening supplies included.  If your child is gluten free, rather than charge more, we sometimes might ask for a donation of a type of flour or GF product we're getting low on - as we know these items are a bit more expensive.

We do ask that children bring a container to take home samples each day and a few recycling items for gardening and craft adventures in the afternoons, these details are sent via email in the week prior to classes.

For those keen to attend both weeks, there are so many dishes prepared each day, you won't repeat the same dishes the following week.

Please see attached booking forms at the top of this page, or feel free to email me via the contact page on this website.
