Junior chefs (6-10): Burgers with a twist

All children love burgers, right? So why not get their creativity flowing with our fun alternative burger children’s cooking class. With simple recipes for fluffy buns and different meat, fish or veg patties, they’ll learn how to make a tasty family meal as well as mastering simple bread-making skills and more.

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. 

Getting children excited by healthier meals can be a challenge, which is why we’ve taken some great family-friendly recipes and dressed them up as burgers for a fun cooking class that little ones will love to get involved in. 

For example, a tasty sweet potato fishcake makes a great burger patty, especially when they’ve also made their own bread dough, baked their own buns and whipped up a simple tomato sauce to dollop on top. Who needs ketchup… 

A tasty end to the class with their loaded buns to eat or take home as they like, plus all the essential recipes for more cooking at home.

FAQs
Will Gordon or Tilly be there…?

Gordon and Tilly try to visit the Academy when they can and love following what you’re all cooking on social media. Our classes and events are hosted by brilliant chef teachers who will be passing on tips and tricks from Gordon and Tilly, as well as tons of knowledge from their own experience in restaurants and kitchens around the world.

Can I book for all my kids and their friends…?

We keep our children's cookery classes to a maximum of 12 per class to ensure they get the best possible experience. There are two age brackets (6-10 years old and 11-15 years old) and these are for children of all cooking abilities, all they need is an interest in food and a can-do attitude.

You can book for up to six children in one booking so there's usually room for brothers, sisters, schoolmates, cousins or neighbours…

If they really do want to bring the whole gang, get in touch with our Private Dining and Events team who can help you book a bespoke kids class or cooking party.

What if they have a food allergy or special dietary need...?

We’ll always try to accommodate any specific requirements for your children but there are some classes and recipes we might not be able to adapt. Please do let us know any requirements in the booking form or contact us to see what we can do.

We unfortunately cannot guarantee an allergen or nut-free environment in any of our kitchens.

What should they wear/bring with them…?

We’ll provide aprons on the day and recommend comfy clothes and flat, closed-toe footwear (sorry, no sandals or flips flops!) as they’ll be moving around and on their feet quite a bit in the kitchen. All equipment and ingredients are provided, as well as takeaway containers for any food they want to take home with them, although feel free to provide your own containers.

What if there are any problems...?

We're sure there won't be, but just in case we will require a mobile phone number for a parent or responsible adult and request you remain local and contactable during the class. If someone else is collecting your child at the end of the class, please let us know on arrival.

How do I get to you and is there parking…?

We’re handily located in Woking town centre, have a look at our Contact page for all location and travel advice.

Can I give a class or event as a gift…?

Great idea! We’ve got several gift voucher options starting from just £10. All e-vouchers can be emailed over instantly so make great last-minute gifts, or you can opt for a voucher to be sent by post.

If booking a specific class or event on behalf of someone else, please ensure you provide their details and requirements in the attendee part of the booking form.

How do I use my gift voucher...?

Lucky you! Simply put the voucher code into the Promo/Voucher code box during checkout and the voucher amount will be taken off your order, or redeem against a certain class by following the instructions on our vouchers page.

Vouchers are valid for 12 months from purchase and can be redeemed against one order (including any classes, events and products but excluding gift vouchers) – we regret that we are unable to offer a refund or credit for any outstanding balance.

What is a waiting list...?

If the class or event you want is fully booked, you can join a waiting list to be notified if places become available.

Can I change my booking if something comes up...?

No problem. We understand sometimes things come up unexpectedly - log in to your account where you can edit your booking up to one week before your class or event, changing attendee details or choosing a different date.

If there's no other suitable date available or you'd like to switch to a different class or event, please get in touch with our team who can help you change your booking. Please see our Terms and Conditions for more details.

What about photography in classes…?

We’d love you to share your photos and experiences with others on social media – tag @gordonramsayacademy and show everyone what you’ve been cooking!

We often photograph and film classes to share in our social and marketing but if you’re not comfortable with this, you can choose to opt out in the booking form and we’ll always check with you in class as well. For more information, please see our Terms and Conditions

Anything else I should know…?

If you have any questions at all about what happens at the Academy, how bookings or vouchers work, your account, or how we can make sure you have the best experience you possibly can, just get in touch with us and we’ll be happy to help.
