Learning through cooking

school cookery workshops in Essex

There are loads of great reasons why it’s important for children to learn to cook from an early age. By getting hands-on, trying, tasting and creating, they learn a fantastic range of important life skills.

Through our fun foody workshops, we teach important lessons about nutrition, encourage children to be adventurous with food, and give them the practical skills they need to plan, buy and prepare a healthy meal.

We work closely with schools to provide cookery classes that support the curriculum for Key Stages 1 – 4.

Workshops can be tailored to fit current class topics or other related learning. For example, learning about other countries and world foods, using fresh ingredients from the school allotment (if you have access to one) or making pies with blackberries collected on a Forest School ramble.

AlphaBake workshops are also accredited as part of the Children’s University Programme, where students can gain points towards their ‘degree’.

Workshops run in your school hall or a classroom and can be delivered as a one-off session, or on a weekly/termly basis. Our core schools programme is 6 weeks long and covers all basic skills, rewarding children with a certificate on completion.


We provide a term time Thursday weekly class 10am – 11am aimed at home educated children, SEN and little learners (pre-schoolers). 

Being a Junior class the children can be supported working to become independent in the kitchen with a visual demonstration following step by step.  No reading expected although being interactive the children will listen and learn having the opportunity to answer questions if they feel comfortable.

Both sweet and savoury dishes, lots of life skills to make a tasty dish.  For those that wish to work with a camera off this is not an issue.
