Gourmet Kids has a number of programs including:
Our 10 week course of one-hour sessions is for 2+ year olds who prepare the sweet or savoury recipe of the day - together with their accompanying carer.
After school lessons
We run after-school lessons Monday to Friday according to demand for school age/teenage children. Food handling and evening meal preparation is covered together with recipes for entree, soup, mains, salads, snacks, desserts and cakes, as well as breakfast and lunch dishes. We prefer to work with vegetarian dishes but please feel free to discuss your individual cooking tastes and requirements.
Children are encouraged to work independently (total hands-on approach) with assistance given if and when required by the teacher or by fellow (more able) students.
Morning and afternoon sessions are available on an occasional basis according to demand.
Kinder/carer session - 1 hr session making sweet treats
School holiday programs
Special sessions are available during the school holidays.
Children’s Parties - Try something new and unique. It’s great fun for all, whether you are getting your hands sticky and licking the spoon or bowl or you are watching the kids cook up a storm.
Recipes and children’s parties are tailored to the child’s age and specific requirements. If the ages of the children vary at the party, assistance is given to those who require help while capable cooks are free to explore their own abilities.
Children dress up in chef hats and aprons, have their own bowl and make the recipe chosen by the birthday child (usually a sweet treat). What they cook becomes their take-home gift therefore lolly bags etc are not necessary.
After the session, while the kitchen crew clean up and bake the children’s creations, the children move on to the party room for party food which is included in the price.
To end the fast-moving and action-packed children’s party, age appropriate games and dancing is held in our upstairs games room. Games include bubble catching and bursting, musical bobs, pass the parcel, treasure hunt, wink murder, duck duck goose, ship shark shore, statues, hokey pokey and simon says.
Apart from the take-home cooking item selected by the birthday child, lolly bags are available if ordered by the host. These comprise a small bag of mixed chocolates and may contain a cooking item.
Children’s parties run for 90 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the item to be cooked. Up to half the party time is for cooking and the remainder is for party food and party games.
We like to have a minimum of 12 children if possible (smaller parties by arrangement) and can hold up to approx 40-50 children.
