Cooking up ideas is a fun and interactive club for ages 8+ run in Faversham & Ashford. The club offers a fabulous opportunity for participants to learn about food including:

  • Where it comes from, how they grow
  • Nutrition
  • How to cook and bake a variety of dishes
  • How to present them
  • Safe ways to use kitchen equipment
  • how foods change in taste and texture when it is cooked in different ways.

Here at Cooking Up Ideas, we believe that coming together with food is a fun event which helps to develop social and independent skills to help in future life.
During the year, each young person, with support, will cook their chosen meal and get to share it with the rest of the group after each session.

Fundamental to the clubs is being self-sustaining, where possible, By using products sourced from our very own farms based locally in Faversham, Ashford, Sittingbourne and Dover.
