Cooking is a great way to spend quality time with your kids in both a fun and educational way, and thankfully, even if you're a nightmare in the kitchen, Didsbury's Food Sorcery has got you covered.
Food Sorcery is a cookery and barista school in Manchester's Didsbury village and aims to give the everyday person confidence in the kitchen through a range of different cooking classes and courses. One of their offerings, 'Big and Little Cooks' is a monthly class for children and their parents where you will learn to create a main course, dessert and side dish as a family.
Working alongside Jason, one of Food Sorcery's qualified chefs, you and your family will not only learn some delicious recipes but also a variety of helpful kitchen tips and tricks. Haven't you always wondered how to chop an onion without crying?
What will you cook? Classes will cater for certain dietary requirements if given notice and will even accept recipe requests if there is a dish you're particularly keen to try.
Previous menus have included home made pasta with carbonara sauce, sticky toffee pudding, chicken cordon bleu, home made breads and ice cream.
Anything else? As well as a whole host of information and recipes, you will also be able to feast on your creations, additional refreshments and grown ups can even indulge in a glass of wine.
When and how much? Big and Little Cooks is run once a month, you can check out the next available dates here. Classes run for 3 hours and come at a cost of £80 for an adult and a child.
