YoungCANCook – Parent & Child Cooking Sessions


An inspiring & interactive 2.5-hour cooking session for Dads & Daughters, Moms & Son’s, friends & family, we all need to cook & it’s a great chance to bond the generations…

Let’s encourage our young folk away from technology into the kitchen making dishes which are healthy & appeal to young taste-buds, the experience is empowering as well as resourceful & will open both their minds & taste-buds! Truly the skills that last a lifetime.

£27.50 per head

How often do we hear about young folk not wanting to eat or try something new? Getting them into the kitchen cooking for the family increases the chances of them trying & eating new foods, gaining an understanding of healthier-yet cool-alternatives & realising how cheap it can be too! They’ll definitely feel a richly deserved sense of pride & what better way to start them off towards independent living!

YoungCANCook is a memorable activity to bond with your Young Cooks…& enjoy some wonderfully tasty healthy food of course too.

All equipment and food is provided.

Just a quick note to say how much my son & husband enjoyed their session this afternoon. Our son was totally engrossed in the tasting of ingredients/prep/cooking and made him really proud. I was gutted that they ate all the fishcakes – but that means that they will have to cook them for us again soon! They are really looking forward to their next session in a couple of weeks and I suspect may come to more after that – Gisele

My daughter had a brilliant time! She loved cooking up a storm and learnt much from the Chef and volunteers. Totally recommend it for kids interested in cooking food and it’s a wonderful way to spend extra time together – Clare
