"My son undertook a 12 week Kiddy cook course as a part of his DoE Bronze Award. He thoroughly enjoyed the experience and looked for to his recipes week after week. The course taught him excellent life skills and the benefit of cooking your own food.The recipes started off fairly simply, with basic techniques and cooking skills and over the course increased in complexity. The recipes were very varied and didn't require hours spent in the kitchen. As parents we loved the food that he produced and we would recommend this course to anyone thinking of doing it for their DoE" Arun Krishnamurthy
"Many thanks for provideing this service. Monty has found it helpful as an option for the skills requirement. he's a busy, sporty 14 year old with committments outside of school, so joining another out of school club in order to complete the skills element was proving challenging time wise and cost wise" Meinir Morris
How do the DofE courses work?
Once we have received your payment we'll email you a link to:
- 12 easy-to-prepare recipes to include a variety of cooking techniques to help you prepare your food from scratch
- Equipment lists for each recipe
- Helpful hints & tips
- Skills checklist
- Feedback form
We will be available to offer email support to your son or daughter for the duration of the course to answer any questions they may have. On completion, the supporting documentation and paperwork will need to be emailed to us for verification and we'll issue a certificate and complete the final assessors report for each student.
Can I do a DofE course with a friend?
Of course – cooking with friends is a great way to have fun. Just make sure you both book your place or only one of you can be assessed.
When does the course start?
This is a 3 month course which begins on your chosen date. Your son or daughter will need to source their own ingredients and cook one recipe each week. All we ask is that they complete our feedback form for each recipe together with photographic evidence of eveything they cook at the end of the 12 weeks.
Where will I find the recipes?
As soon as you've paid we'll send you a link to your easy-to-make recipes together with a copy of our skills checklist and feedback form.
