My little boy loves cooking. This is probably because he has been riding on my hip while I stir, blend and bake since he was a baby. As a working mum, I really value that special time we spend together. It is great to know that he is learning about “real” food and getting to grips with techniques that will be useful to him throughout his adult life.
What I came to realise though was that what with spending all my time finding suitable recipes, buying the shopping and then all the clearing up, sometimes the bit I really enjoyed, the bit with him, got a bit lost. I imagine that a lot of parents feel the same. All the chores just sort of get in the way of having fun with your children.
Our teachers make Cookery Doodle Doo classes a fun environment for children to learn, and a relaxed environment for parents to play with them.
Since we launched in 2011, we’ve cooked live on ITV, been interviewed by the BBC and even Delia Smith has popped along to one of our cooking classes! Now a national children’s cooking franchise with holiday clubs, after school classes, parties and even a bilingual cooking programme taught with Spanish – there are different themes each time to keep it fresh and interesting so there’s always something new to try with Cookery Doodle Doo.
I hope to see you at the next cooking session!
