Important update - Many classes and activities are now running online and there are loads of digital resources too.
We're updating the info we have for children's activities daily and you can find online classes from your local teachers in our main search.
We've summarised by category too and you can explore further here.
Taster Sessions Available
We offer classes for pre-schoolers, children and even teens. We also host special event workshops, birthday parties and classes within schools and the community.
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.
We look forward to welcoming you along to our classes and hope you love them as much as we do.
FREE ONLINE KIDS COOKING SESSIONS! Cook Stars are running children's cookery classes. We have had to suspend our cooking classes at the moment, BUT we're staying positive and we’ve thought of another way we can keep children cooking! I’ve come up with some nice simple recipes especially for this, and will do a few videos a week for children to cook along to! Hopefully it will help relieve some boredom (I’m a mum of 3….I get it!) and it will give them something nice to look forward to! We’re going to be giving out prizes in competitions for the children who want to share photos of their dish with us too 😊 I have never done videos like these one and it's fair to say I am certainly no You Tuber 🤣, but we're all in this together and so I will give it my very best shot! Your children are so welcome to join me if they already love cooking or just want to give it a go! All the videos will be in this Facebook group, so please come and join us: Cook Stars 'lockdown' cook
