Weekend Workshops

Weekend food fun

We enjoy welcoming children to our weekend cookery classes, which are held regularly and staged to suit different ages. Each session is 2 hours long, during which time children will cook from scratch a savoury dish and a pudding, cake or biscuits.

The menu changes each weekend and often has seasonal themes. This allows children who come regularly to try lots of different foods and learn a variety of culinary skills. Menus may vary from location to location, so please check the details of your nearest AlphaBake to find out what’s cooking this week.

Every session is educational, packed full of fun and completely hands-on – we literally do get stuck right in.

AlphaBake provide ALL of the ingredients and equipment needed for every session, so you don’t need to bring anything except your child!

Workshops are age appropriate, but children can move down a level if they prefer the recipes or want to be with a younger sibling. Likewise, pre-school children are welcome to join the Reception level class, provided an adult helper stays with them.
