A former teacher will be delivering top class cooking tips to children at Ludlow Food Festival. They’ll be providing a series of come-and-have-a-go sessions for children at:
Youngsters can get their hands into the mixing bowl and enjoy messy foodie fun. Parents can also watch – making sure they pick up plenty of useful tips for lunch boxes, interesting dinners and ways of making nutritious vegetables seem like fun.
The ladies running the sessions will be baking buddies Tracey Cooke and friends who have teamed up to pass on their culinary skills. They aim to encourage children to develop a taste for cooking and healthy eating by experimenting with recipes, including unusual but wholesome ingredients such as beetroot and courgettes in cakes.
Tracey, who previously worked at Pebble Brook Primary School in Crewe, said: “With so much emphasis on obesity, food is so often demonised but we all know we couldn’t do without it and just need to eat the right type of food. “We want children to learn that this doesn’t come out of a box in the supermarket and creating your own meals can be fun.” The pals, who have daughters in the same class at Wybunbury Delves, will come armed with kitchen equipment and ingredients for the sessions, which parents can attend. Tracey added: “Kids cooking workshops will often create biscuits. Ours will incorporate colour and sweetness through fruit and vegetables, making them different and more nutritious. “We are linking sessions to Government guidelines on healthy eating but we also want children to develop traditional cooking methods, using up what’s left in the larder, because one day they will be students on a budget or caring for a family of their own.” Tracey will be available all weekend to answer questions.
