Christchurch Food Festival Education Trust - Join the Kids Kitchen

Christchurch Food Festival Education Trust


Have you booked for the Kids Kitchen yet? All sessions will be taking place in a large marquee on the Quomps on Saturday 12 May and Sunday 13 May as part of the Christchurch Food Festival. Once again, they have been sponsored by the Rotary Club of Christchurch, Waitrose and Bournemouth and Poole College. For the first time we are also being joined by Bournemouth University, who will be showcasing their learning zone.


A special feature of the programme is the range of sessions for a parent and child aged eight and above to cook together. Popular chef Loic Gratadoux from The Harbour Heights Hotel will be offering a Taste of France with a Goats cheese mousse and Spring vegetable and asparagus salad, and Festival chef Susan Spooner is offering a Mediterranean Medley with a Chicken Provençal. Tickets are £12 to include an adult and child cooking together.


Other sessions for children on their own include classes for 6-9 year olds who can join Rachel's Little Chefs to make Rachel’s healthy scrummy burgers with a tasty salsa. Those who are 9-12 years old can join Sarah’s Curry Magic. Tickets for all of these sessions are £10 each.


All tickets include tuition and equipment and a full set of ingredients for each child, or parent and child working together. Tickets are now available online at For full details of all workshops, go to
