The Cookery Doodle Doo gift voucher is a perfect gift for any little cook.
With complete flexibility, our gift voucher can be fully personalised including the type of class e.g. private session, preschool class, pudding club or holiday club, number of sessions and number of guests – or you can select a monetary value of your choice.
If you would like more details or to purchase one of our very popular gift vouchers for a great little treat, please contact your local cookery tutor.
Either by gift voucher as above, or by direct booking, we can offer a bespoke range of private sessions for your child. Held in the comfort of your home address (or other venue of your choice) we will work with you to agree a totally unique session tailored to your child’s wishes and needs.
We have run a wide selection of private classes in the past – here is a small snapshot to give you an idea of what we can offer:
3-course meal for the family
A 12-year-old girl wanted to work on a one-to-one basis to cook a 3-course meal for her family. We made Dippidoodledoo (Breadsticks and hummus) which she added her own vegetable crudités to later that day; Curious Cannelloni (a spinach and ricotta pancake bake) which she served with salad and garlic bread; and Strawberry & Cream Flumble (cold cheesecake with a ginger crumb). Her family loved their meal and she was totally proud of her efforts. I took all the washing up away with me to leave her clean and tidy, ready to set the table and get dressed up for her special meal.
Short lesson in shortcrust
A 10-year old keen cook had been given a food mixer as a birthday present, and she wanted to learn how to make pastry. We make a sweet shortcrust in the mixer and used it to make a Treacle Tart, then we also made a savoury batch which we used to make mini quiches with a variety of fillings – I wanted to make sure she knew pastry might be quicker in a mixer, but it’s also super-easy by hand. We washed up together and chatted about food hygiene as well.
An 8-year-old had a birthday party organised by her dad, but her mum wanted to do something special too. She also chose mini-quiches (they’re popular!) to make with a group of her friends at granny’s house and they all chose their own fillings from a selection we provided. They went blackberry picking whilst I kept an eye on the bakes and cleared up, then enjoyed their creations together for tea.
