Culinary Parties for Kids

Make your child’s next birthday extra special  with an “I made it myself!/Ek het dit self gemaak!” or Masterchef culinary party.

During Cooking Up A Storm’s culinary parties each recipe is demonstrated to the children step-by-step and each child makes his/her own recipe from start to finish.  Kids get to take the fruit of their labour home and tell Mom and Dad:  I made it myself!  Most of them eat it right away though!  During the class the kids learn about kitchen hygiene, basic cooking methods, new ingredients and recipes, accurate measuring, etc.   Please visit Cooking Up A Storm’s Facebook page for photo’s.
