Our children’s classes & workshops are the perfect way for kids to get creative, learn some basic skills in the kitchen and most of all, have fun! Classes are hand’s on, educational and a great way to boost your little one’s confidence.
Kids aged 6-8 or 9-10 have the opportunity to experience and learn with Frenchie teacher Anne- Claire Blanvillain. Anne-Claire cooks with traditional wheat as well as buckwheat commonly used in the north of France. But before they begin, they learn a few facts about the Bretagne region, crepes and a little Bretagne hat making for the younger ones. They will make simple fillings, sweet and savoury from salted caramel to cooked cinnamon apples or egg, cheese and ham to creamy mushrooms, spinach and cheese. They will eat their creations and wash it down with a tasty glass of Breton apple juice for the full frenchie experience. Réservez à l’avance pour ne pas être décu!
Anne- Claire is a 28 year old Frenchie who has been working around Europe for the past 8 years and now settled in Yorkshire . She is originally from Bretagne, a region in the West of France, surrounded by the Atlantic and the English Channel.
” I wanted to focus on what’s important and what brings people joy and useful skills. I’ve always been obsessed with food! Enjoying your food and appreciating natural and wholesome ingredients, sharing these with family and friends have always been strong values at the centre of French culture.”
Anne-Claire started to cook from a young age but really started to pick up the pace about 10 years ago when she left home and was desperate to replicate her mothers cooking.
” My whole life has been surrounded by food and people who respect, enjoy and adore it! As we say in France we live to eat and not the other way round.”
Anne-Claire will be leading these sessions with the support of Adele, both who have experience working with children. Sessions are designed to be suitable for this age group to be involved in the process as far as possible for the learning and interactive experience.
On booking we will ask you to complete a short form giving some details of your child/young person and emergency contact details. Those with additional needs are expected to bring support, but please do contact us to discuss this in advance of booking. Parents (carers or grandparents) are welcome to stay and hang around in the coffee & tea area, if they wish, or can come back at the end of the session.
Printed copies of the recipes are given out at the end.
Drinks and aprons are provided but you are also welcome to bring your own.
