School Holiday Activities Northern Beaches – Cooking Classes

kids cooking classes northern beaches school holidays

Since its introduction in July 2017, our school holiday cooking classes have become super popular.

Each afternoon, after a morning of energetic play, kids are given the changes to join our Cooking Club. The kids find this fun and rewarding to cook in a group.  What we cook changes daily so kids never get bored. And of course, they get to savour and share the fruits of their labour with a yummy group feast at the end.

Our senior kids (8 yrs and over) learn how to make damper. We even make a campfire where the kids put the damper on sticks to make “twists” which, once cooked to perfection, we eat with margarine and honey.
