Children Eat Dinosaurs Live at Children’s Food Festival

Local children enjoyed a variety of challenging foodie events including eating Dinosaur Pies as part of the Brighton Food Festival.

Thousands of children attended free workshops provided by local companies and volunteers between 8-16th September.

Children’s party company Cookery Doodle Doo performed a live food show on Hove Lawns on Sunday. Children created pre-historic landscapes while Katie Elfer from Cookery Doodle Doo made 3D Dinosaur Pie Puppets on stage which the children then decorated.

Pete, Dad of Charlie (4) said “This has been amazing fun, the kids are really into dinosaurs at the moment and we’ll definitely look at making these for the next birthday party.”

The company also provided free shark-themed workshops where children were encouraged to wear snorkels and immerse themselves in an underwater adventure while using hairdryers and edible play-dough to get creative decorating freshly-baked cookies.

Katie Elfer, Director said ”It’s been great fun researching and planning for the children’s food workshops this year. I honestly never thought that practicing front-crawl in a snorkel around my living room would be part of the job, but it’s this sort of meticulous testing and enthusiasm that means we get great feedback at the parties. We wanted it to be the most fun possible for the kids”

Ends.
