The Cook Stars team is passionate about cooking and we simply LOVE good food!

We offer cooking classes for:

Pre-school children age 2-5 at our Mini's classes
Children age 4-11 at our Junior's classes
Older children and teenagers at our Academy classes.

We also host special event workshops, birthday parties and classes within schools and the community.

CLASSES:

The staff at Cook Stars take care of all the preparation so make it easy for our Cook Stars to simply come along and enjoy our classes. All ingredients, cooking equipment, an apron, packaging and cooking know-how is provided! Everyone takes home their lovely dish along with a recipe card to cook again at home. We even see to the dreaded clearing away and washing up!

Here at Cook Stars we want our classes to be accessible to everyone, that's why our classes are affordable and offer fantastic value. As well as providing everything you'll need to cook we also treat children to a craft activity to keep them entertained during cooking time!

At our classes, there's lots of opportunity to experiment with different preparation methods....weighing, measuring, shape cutting, decorating, rolling and much more! We learn about different ingredients, try new foods and develop useful life skills.

Cook Stars believe the secret to pleasurable learning is though 'play' so our classes are friendly, relaxed and fun. We keep our class sizes small to tailor our support and encourage individuals whilst we cook up a wide range of delicious dishes.  Each child makes their own amazing dish from scratch to take home along with a recipe card so they can cook it again!

Teddy Bear's Picnic

A brilliant party recommended for children age 3-8. With this option you can invite the whole of the class to this party as we can accommodate up to 40 children!

All children will be asked to bring their favourite teddy with them to enjoy a picnic with them. We will bring the outdoors 'in' and set up the room with 'grass' mats, flowers and balloons to create a picnic atmosphere for the children to enjoy.  Children will start the party making by decorating a picnic food box ready to fill with their feast! Children will make either a chefs's hat or enjoy a sewing craft to make a headband with little teddy bears ears to start!

They will then make a pizza shaped like a cute teddy bear before moving onto to our 4 picnic stations. At the first picnic station the children will make sandwiches and cut out in teddy bear and star shapes. They will then decorate a cupcake with icing and a selection of sprinkles as well as make teddy bear shaped fondant icing decorations. Next they will thread delicious fresh fruit onto skewers and finally take a packet of crisps and juice to complete their feast.

The children will enjoy eating together on the mats before playing a game. We recommend a game where children will try and find the gummy bear amongst a bowl of ingredients (such as cereal and cooked spaghetti!).

Finally, every child will receive one of our certificates to say they have been to a teddy bears picnic!

Cheesecake Party

Our glorious cheesecake option is 'no-bake' so it's perfect if your venue doesn't have an oven...or just if you want something amazingly tasty!!

Each guest is makes their own delicious vanilla and chocolate cheesecake to take home. With smashing biscuits and lots of whisking this party is great fun!

A party feast is provided and includes a choice of sandwiches, a cheese board, crudités, crisps, a choice of sweet treats and sugar-free squash. For pudding, guests make their own ice-cream sundaes.
