Junior chefs (11-15): 'Party Food' Day

Fill the school holidays with fun as we help your budding young cooks be the hosts with the most as they spend a whole day with our chefs learning some easy recipes for finger food and party bites that will always impress. They'll learn some great cooking skills and bring lots of delicious food home for the whole family to try.  


What to expect

Gordon loves getting his children involved in the kitchen, meaning they’ve grown up really excited and inspired by food. Our Junior chef classes are a great opportunity for young cooks to get stuck in and have fun trying out new things.

Your young cooks will spend the day at the Academy, cooking up an absolute storm with our chefs in the kitchen. We have different days and each day has a different theme and cooking activities. They will make their own lunch during the morning session and then have their afternoon creations ready to take home to share with the rest of the family. 

This 'Party Food' day is the perfect opportunity for them to master some brilliant recipes for sharing - how about some delicious cheesy breads, chips and dips, and cute little chocolate bites that will be guaranteed crowd-pleasers.
