"From the start, Kiddy Cook has formed a vital part of this project, responding immediately to the challenge of finding recipes based on the crops we were growing, and quickly understanding how to engage and teach children who had no previous experience either of cooking or even of eating the vegetables and herbs we were cooking.
They have carefully judged how to structure the sessions appropriate to the ages and abilities of the children, and how to teach a range of cooking skills engendering a delight in cooking and eating, and the utmost concern for safety. All of the children are involved from start to finish, and leave the session with a large portion of their dish, carefully packaged, and a laminated recipe card. Most importantly from our point of view, the children have all enormously enjoyed the sessions; even ‘difficult’ children have been engaged and – to their teachers’ amazement – declared that they love vegetables they would never previously have eaten.
We will continue to work with Kiddy Cook for the duration of our Lottery funding, and have no hesitation in warmly recommending them as excellent cooking trainers, highly professional, supremely well organised and able to create delicious dishes of the highest quality under pressure."

"Thank you for a very successful party. All the children enjoyed themselves and were very involved in all the activities. Ruby loved her cookbook present and has insisted she goes to bed with it under her pillow!"
