Budding Jamies and Nigellas have shown they such an appetite for chef lessons that The Cooking School at Dean Clough is now opening its doors to them all year round!
One young teenage member is so keen she has been to every single session since the sessions started last May. Claudia Bartholemew from Huddersfield attended 2 sessions in one half term week when she turned 13 ““ the School runs 8-12 and 13 ““16 sessions. She now has her own twitter account @claudiateencook dedicated to cooking and has whipped up all sorts from ginger sponge to chicken stir fry and even a giant princess cake.
The next Chefs’ Club will run at Feb half term and all 2012 dates have just been announced. Participants will be whisking, chopping and mixing for a 2 and half hour session and preparing a range of dishes from Winter Broth with Herb Dumplings to Chocolate Orange Bread and Butter Pudding.
The courses are running each school holiday throughout 2012 and if young chefs attend all 5 dates, they will receive a chef’s hat and certificate at the end of the year. Cooking School Executive Head Manager Matthew Benson-Smith enjoys the courses for young people as they are always different “To see them progress on each courses is fantastic and The Cooking School is a safe, friendly and modern facility for them to learn to cook in. Plus the parents are always happy as some leftovers usually make their way home!”
