"I think your cookery school is a wonderful experience for young children. They learn a lot each time. I think the way you plan each lesson and your learning outcomes are excellent. Evie enjoyed each aspect of the sessions".
"Seth and I loved our Little Bites Cookery classes, he really enjoyed the practical skills involved in cooking the recipes and other food related activities. It gave him a great confidence boost to be able to share the dishes he had created in class with his family when he got home"
"My son had a great time and cooked some yummy cheese and chive scones of which he was really proud of. We shared them for lunch and they went down a treat. My son is already looking forward to the next class next month. Thank you for your patience and expertise Penelope, and for providing some great cooking classes in a very safe, fun and relaxed environment."
"Little Bites cookery school is a great original addition to the huge number of music/movement/ swimming/playgroups on offer in York for toddlers and pre-schoolers. The classes are fun and friendly. The kids all loved using the pasta machine and the sauce they made was delicious and very easy to do again at home, plus we were given a copy of the recipe to keep. The healthy eating messages from the 'Eatwell plate' jigsaw were great. Thank you!"
