Garden to Plate: A Creative Harvest cooking workshop for kids

A cooking workshop for kids

Treat your kids to a kitchen garden cooking adventure. They'll make and munch delicious Tzatziki Dip, Blueberry Smoothies and Zucchini Veggie Fritters.

Hosted by Cindy Powell, Resident Chef and President of the Warragul Farmers' Market and host of the Warragul Kids' Farmers Market Cooking Club.

Cindy is famous for firing kids' enthusiasm for cooking and combining fun with fab fresh food handling know-how.

Curiosity + confidence + chemistry + culture + creativity

5 Pluses this workshop offers your kid - on top of great grub.

Cooking is:

  • A significant life skill – cooking classes are a good way to boost your kid's confidence and independence

  • A fun way for kids to explore healthy eating, find out about food groups and a balanced diet

  • A maths and science thing – kids get to measure and weigh ingredients, see chemical reactions without blowing stuff up (also fun, but we won't be doing that here), learn about plant biology

  • A cultural thing – our three recipes share a healthy pedigree but come from different traditions - Greek, vegetarian, and planet smoothie – the home of bliss in a blender

  • A curious and creative thing – we'll feed your kid's curiosity about trying new flavours and improvising with ingredients.
