COOKING

We are proud to awork alongside the amazing Mhairi Stewart-Ungar from COOK STARS.

In Mhairi's words...

"Cooking, kids and crafts - I have a job which combines three of my favourite things! My background is in learning, development and teaching, so Cook Stars is my perfect blend!

For me, cooking is fun, creative and sociable and I love the way that food brings people together. I'm passionate about children having a healthy, balanced and fun 'friendship' with food and developing cooking skills which can last a life time.

A favourite part of my job is seeing the seemingly little things being the big things - a child enjoying a food they thought they'd hate and then having the confidence to try more foods, or getting a huge sense of achievement from chopping a carrot when they thought it would be too difficult. I love the ear to ear grins when children see the meal they made come out of the oven!

At Cook Stars we take care of all the preparation to make it easy for the children to simply come along and enjoy our sessions. All ingredients, cooking equipment, packaging and cooking know-how is provided. Everyone takes home their lovely dish along with a recipe card to cook again at home. We even take care of the clearing away and washing up!

 

At our sessions, there's lots of opportunity to experiment with different preparation methods....weighing, measuring, shape cutting, decorating, rolling and much more! We learn about different ingredients, try new foods and develop useful life skills.

Cook Stars believe the secret to pleasurable learning is though 'play' so our classes are friendly, relaxed and fun. We keep our class sizes small to tailor our support and encourage individuals whilst we cook up a wide range of delicious dishes."
