Some kids love sport, some kids love craft and some kids LOVE to cook! (and how lucky are the families of those kids! well played Mums and Dads)
We’re pretty lucky here in Adelaide that there are a number of cooking schools around the place offering both one off school holiday classes as well as regularly weekly sessions your kids can sign up for. They can learn to bake a cake, make the perfect scrambled egg and even try their hand at Japanese pancakes! They’ll not only learn how to follow a recipe and measure ingredients, they’ll also learn about food, nutrition and experimenting with food. It all sounds yummy to us!

Cook n Create Adelaide

Fun aside (but never far!) Cook n Create Adelaide love to focus on the importance of building healthy eating habits, making healthy choices and nutrition. They discuss healthy alternatives and experiment with all the beautiful, fresh, nourishing foods we have on our doorstep here in sunny South Australia! Hosting private and public incursions, ticketed events all over Adelaide as well as cooking birthday parties for kids!
