Having fun with Food

Junior Chefs Academy

Having fun with food whilst drip feeding the healthy eating message is the essence of our success. Our workshops are fun, hands on, interactive, and delivered by fully qualified staff in a safe and educational environment. Junior Chefs learn by doing, are encouraged to make their own healthy nutritional choices where they can taste their talent.

We have been running kid’s cookery workshops in over 300 schools regionally promoting a healthy appetite to learning and having fun with food! Testament to our success we return to most schools year on year on year…..

All our sessions are vibrant and educational including a fully hands–on cookery experience coupled with interactive games and activities. We pre- name your chefs hats, provide aprons, recipe packs and all children get to take home their own masterpiece at the end of the day.

We ran a competition in 2008 whereby 22,500 local children designed an apron for the Michelin Chef. Thanks Gary for all your support!

I am delighted to be part of the The Junior Chefs Academy. It is so important that we educate children about the benefits of a healthy, balanced diet and give them the practical skills to achieve it. Through the The Junior Chefs Academy these skills can be achieved while having good fun. Happy cooking! Gary

Why does Gary love to work with Mushrooms and Junior Chefs?… …Because they’re all funghi’s!
