Children’s home or alternative educational provision 

young person safe cokery skills looked after children's home cookery lessons 1:1 food hygiene food safety independent livingI currently work with a number of looked after children and young people within their care provision. These lessons are usually 1:1 or 1:2 and are tailored especially to the individual’s needs.

Many of these young people benefit from learning independent living skills alongside the cookery skills such as meal planning, shopping and safe storage of foods.

Others benefit from healthy eating advice which can be woven into a cooking lesson easily where I show the young person numerous ways a dish can be adapted.
We are able to discuss food choices and nutrition in the relaxed scenario of cooking together.

I am able to instruct the children and young people about food hygiene and even take them through the food safety and hygiene training and certification.

As I get to know each young person better, the lessons become more diverse and tailored to each young persons needs and preferences.

This is a really rewarding part of my job and something I feel honoured to be asked to do.

1:1 Sessions at home

1:1 cookery lessons present gift children cookery lessonSome people like to buy a 1:1 lesson with me as a gift for a friend or loved one.

These lessons can be bought individually or a block of lessons can be booked for a discounted price.

An individual 1:1 lesson costs £35

1:1 lessons can last up to two hours – it depends what we are doing!

I am able to adapt the lesson to the child’s skill levels, dietary needs and food preferences or simply cooking just for fun.

I provide all equipment, ingredients and protective clothing.

Perhaps you’d like to treat an aspiring cook for a gift. For gifts, I will put together a small package so that your child has something to unwrap (a very important aspect of gift giving and receiving!). This will include a personalised letter from me, a Make with Kate branded wooden spoon and a laminated recipe card to get them started in a gift bag tied with ribbon.

Do contact me directly to find out more because every session is so different.

 

Home education groups

I run these as group sessions with a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 15 participants. I offer discounts for siblings and for a block booking of 6 sessions.

Having worked with several home educated children in a variety of ways, I offer a personalised and flexible approach. Families must be able to choose their own approach to learning that suits their children best.

Children often follow areas of interest and learn many diverse skills and new knowledge through a particular area of interest. I love the opportunity to tailor lessons in this way.  It is entirely up to you how you choose to weave in my cookery lessons into your child’s learning.

All equipment, protective clothing and ingredients are provided.

Parties

Invite Make with Kate to your party, we’ll add some extra sparkle. Your guests will have fun preparing food followed by eating it together as a part of the party.  Alternatively you may prefer children to make something to take home in their party bag. We offer parties based on a minimum of 5 participants and a maximum of 15. All equipment, protective clothing and ingredients are provided.
