Teen Classes

Teen Virtual Classes

Teens are the perfect age for learning how to cook from scratch. Research tells us that if kids learn about food and cooking at this age, they develop great habits around food that stay with them for life.

The bonus of the virtual classes is there are no lifts to be arranged, your teen can just slope down to the kitchen, do the class in their joggers and dinner is made for everyone at the end. Yes to all of that!

Online Parties

Looking for ways to entertain kids? Cooking & baking parties are a great way to have fun, get in a mess and either bake something fab or cook a cracking meal.

Think chocolate cake or a heap of tasty tacos – getting messy in the kitchen makes for a great party. There’s fun to be had and food to be eaten. Say no more.

This works best with groups from 6 to 14 people and you can be in as many different houses, locations and countries as you like!

Private Tuition – Pre Uni

NEW! Cooking for yourself (and hopefully others too!) is a life skill.  When it comes to doing it for the first time, on a budget and with a small, shared kitchen – that’s an art worth learning. 

We want to share the basics with you to get you started (how to shop on a budget, the basic equipment to start a mini kitchen, what to do with leftovers). We will also take you through a core selection of dishes which will be your ‘cooking capsule’. 

All dishes are designed to need minimum equipment and time to succeed, so you can eat well whilst having time to get on with life.  These specialist tuition sessions are for maximum of 4 guests or just 2-to-1, giving plenty of time to answer questions and to get you equipped with speed.

Please ask for more details: pip@thecookingapple.co.uk

Are the virutal classes suitable for my child?

Teens are welcome to attend on their own if they are 11+ and have basic knife skills (and critically – your permission to do that). I ask that there is an adult on hand to help with anything hot. For kids at the young end of the scale, I suggest an adult remains on hand during the whole class. We want to keep things safe, especially when it comes to knives and ovens.

Got kids younger than 11 who love cooking? The classes are also suitable for enthusiastic pre-teens (9+ for Mid Week Chefs, 8+ for Baking), but I would ask that these kids have an adult buddy who does the class with them. Buddy comes for free!

Any questions as to whether it is appropriate for your child – please ask.  Some teens who have come to these classes are now cooking one night a week for their families – it can happen!
