8-WEEK VIRTUAL COOKERY SCHOOL FOR KIDS 


Due to the success of our 8-Week Virtual Cookery School for Kids in April and May 2021, we have decided to launch another class this Autumn/Winter. We had more than 200 kids cook along with us over the eight weeks, learning how to cook, bake and become better young chefs in the kitchen. We also introduced children to the idea of food provenance and local food that is produced in their own community or county. 

Our new course will again teach children some crowd-pleasing and family-friendly dishes such as roast chicken, meatballs, breads, mac and cheese, fish pies, and much more!

The classes will be held virtually via Zoom on Saturday mornings from 11am to 1pm.

Budding young chefs can pre-book to attend the full course, priced at €250 or choose to attend individual classes for €35 per session with ingredients list and tools required shared in advance. 

Students will also have the option of cooking along with Jp or tuning into the class later and putting the learnings into practice on their own when it has finished. 

JP’s virtual course gives kids an entertaining, interactive, and educational experience. As parental supervision is advised for kids under 12, the classes also offer parents the chance to pick up a few tips and bond with their kids over everyone’s favourite talking point - food! 

JP McMahon said: “We are really excited to introduce our virtual cookery course for kids. As a dad myself, I know just how important it is for kids to learn new skills and for us as parents to encourage passions and talents. Lockdown has made it all the more difficult to ensure our kids are reaching their potential, so our 8-week course is a fantastic opportunity to teach a life-long skill in a fun way. 

“We have made sure that the classes offer variety when it comes to recipes but also that each class is suitable for a variety of abilities. As a chef, my own personal ethos is to harness traditional methods and local produce, so I will also share some of my own beliefs and passions in the hope I can open our attendees’ eyes to the world of food around them too.”

Ideal for children and teenagers aged 9-16* already showing talent in the kitchen and those that need a little encouragement, the course will not only teach how to cook traditional meals and recipes, but also teach must-know culinary skills along the way. It will also support kids to build an increased understanding of Irish produce and appreciation for different flavours through a relaxed and fun format. (*but not limited to this age group, we have had younger participants and once supervised these young cooks are welcome to join)
