Cooking Adventures run school workshops offering a range of topic-themed cookery days within your school.
Cooking Adventures visits your school, sets up and runs the workshops for you. These days are a great alternative to school trips. The workshops offer an affordable way to engage children in a new topic without the expense of travel. Content and style of the sessions are adapted as necessary to ensure fun is had by all, including any children with special educational needs.
Who runs the class?
A qualified teacher with knowledge of the current curriculum runs all school workshops and will consequently link all activities into the children’s current learning. They are a qualified first aider and level 2 certificated in food health and safety.
Depending on the room and facilities available, we will accommodate for an average group size of 15 – 30 children. Please note the structure of the workshop will be agreed with you in advance.
How much will a workshop like this cost?
A half day workshop will cost £90, whilst a full day cost £170. This price includes all equipment but excludes the cost of ingredients. The reason for this is that we always endeavour to keep costs minimal and ingredients required for various themes does vary.

Pictures below are from our most recent workshop which was a day of Indian Cookery for 90 children in Year 4.
- The workshop was split into 6 groups of 15 children – 3 groups made Vegetable Samosas; 1 group made Paneer Tikka (Vegetable) Skewers; 1 group made Chicken Balti and the final group cooked Chicken Korma. In the afternoon, all 90 children had a chance to taste every dish along with some poppadoms and mango chutney. As an example, the ingredients for this workshop cost £100.
This particular range of dishes was selected to meet a range of dietary needs and, of course, was completely nut-free.
When the children were not cooking – they were provided with a classroom based maths activity involving adding/subtracting money in the context of an Indian Restaurant using a menu to plan a meal/event to match a budget and set criteria.
