Homemade Takeaway!

Last week we had been at Fairley House School (a school for children with dyslexia) in Pimlico. We spent 2 days working with the senior school students and a further day with the junior school. The menu for the day was Pizza from scratch, and all the kids had a really brilliant time creating their own masterpiece! Everyone left the session proud with their very own home made takeaway. We taught an incredible 160 children over the three days at Fairley House- Wow!

It is always amazing to see the Van in action. We arrived on site at Fairley House School and unloaded the kitchen units into the school hall. We set up the kitchen and delivered 4 one hour cookery classes in one school day! Now that is an achievement! After a successful day of pizza making we packed up all the wonderful pizza's in a special Kids Cookery School ‘Homemade takeaway’ bag ready for home time. I hope the parents got to see the master pieces before they were consumed!

So what will next week bring? Watch this Space!

The New Term Begins....with loads of Bread Rolls!

Having had a really good summer teaching hundreds of children over the long schools holidays, it was time for us to get out and about with the KCS Mobile kitchen!

So off we go again! We had a fab day at Yellow Umbrella Day on Sunday 19 September, a huge family event held at Chiswick Business Park! The weather was kind to us too- not a drop of rain to be seen! As one of the chosen charities to be supported at the event, we arrived with our unique KCS on Wheels ready to deliver hands on cookery on the plaza! Yes, in the outdoor's; ovens, handwash basin, dem unit, and even the kitchen sink. Parents signed their kids up to cook fresh delicous bread rolls from scratch using their own chosen ingredients to flavour the bread, like olives, rosemary, garlic and sundried tomatoes which was lots of fun. Everyone's bread rolls were so yummy and all hand made which was fantastic! All in all I think we could all say that the whole day was a great success having taught about 90 kids (and a few parents and adults along the way.)

So to those of you that came and supported The Kids Cookery School and enjoyed cooked with us thank you for coming. We hope to see you again soon!
