Workshop Activities

 

EXPERIMENTAL COOKING:
Create your own Art of Food.


Looking to keep the kids or adults amused.
Experimental Cooking is tailor made to suit the ages and ability of members.
Our food technology cooking program provides participants the necessary tools to respond to design tasks using their imagination to create products using ingredients soured locally.  Starting with a base recipe, this program has been structured to provide all participants the confidence to experiment and knowledge to adapt their finished product in future if it does not meet the expectations of themselves or others.
The cooking workshop focuses on experimentation and encourages the use of creativity by adding different flavours in food, though the use of fresh herbs, fruit and vegetables. Participants will also learn how to use Food Substitutions and their alternatives.  This activity promotes and encourages teamwork, creativity and confidence to experiment with individual flavours and trying new things. This is recommended for kids and can be adapted to suit all ages.
