My son took Kiddy Cook's Bronze DofE course and we fiound it excellent. the recipes were clear, easy to follow and focussed on the basics which was exactly what my son needed. Excellent value for money and would highly recommend. Nicola

Value for money

With prices of just £35 for a 3 month course, or £45 for 6 months, the Kiddy Cook DofE course is unbeatable value for money - and the perfect recipe for success!

My daughter completed the online cooking course for her 3 month skills section. She thoroughly enjoyed it and now has confidence to make meals from scratch. Fabulous idea! Vanessa

When does the course start?

This is a 3 - 6 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 on completion.

You can choose from our list of either sweet or savoury recipes and just in case you don’t like our suggestions, we’re happy for you to choose something similar – just let us know in advance what you’d like to cook and we can make sure it ticks the ‘technique’ box of skills.
