Junior chefs (11-15): 'Edible Gifts' Day

Christmas School holidays? Then it's time to inspire your junior chefs in the kitchen with a fun day full of cooking, baking and creative activities at the Academy! This time we'll be making gorgeous sweet and savoury edible gifts for the festive season, which they can bring home to wrap up for friends and family.  


What to expect

Our Christmas cooking classes are not only the perfect opportunity to have some festive fun in the kitchen with friends and loved ones, but will also set you up with essential recipes and new ideas to make this Christmas the most delicious one yet.

Your young cooks will spend the day at the Academy, cooking up an absolute storm with our chefs in the kitchen. For Christmas, we are focussing on festive flavours to make some delicious sweet and savoury treats that they will be so proud to gift to loved ones. 

From sticky gingerbread to buttery cheese biscuits, there will be something for everyone! We'll make sure they have plenty to taste and lunch too, so you can just collect them and all their creations at the end of the day. Time to shop for some pretty ribbon and start writing those gift tags!
