THIRD SATURDAY OF EACH MONTH
Mudgee Fine Foods Inc. (MFFI) hold cooking classes for kids during the Mudgee Farmers’ Market.
The aim of the classes is for kids to have fun learning all about cooking healthy food with fresh, local and seasonal ingredients.
When do the classes happen?
The classes take place during the Farmers’ Market on the third Saturday of the month, from 9:00am - 12:00pm
(Excludes December, January + February)
The class will start promptly at 9.00am so children should plan to arrive 10 minutes beforehand. They will not leave the church grounds at any time. Parents are not expected to stay with their children but are welcome to come to the kitchen at the end of the class.
Where do the classes take place?
Children will be met by the Chef at the MFFI Farmers’ Market Information marquee in the central section near the live music. The class will use both the Market grounds and visit some of the Farmers’ Market stalls then proceed to the St Mary’s Parish Kitchen located near the Convent building on the right hand side, facing the Church.
What happens in a class?
There will be a different theme each class but they will cover;
• Basic cooking skills for preparation of tasty and nutritious food.
• Choosing seasonal and local produce to make the most of what is available.
• Eating and sharing food together.
• The classes start with the Chef guiding the children through the Market to choose the produce they’ll need.
• They then go to the kitchen and cook the recipes planned by the Chef.
• At approx. 11.45 am the class will bring their food out to the Markets to share.
Parents need to be at the Markets at 11.45 am to collect their child, where they can take part in the communal conversation about the children’s creations.
What is provided?
Kids only need to bring themselves, however please ensure they wear closed-in shoes.
We ask that any long hair be tied back for health and safety reasons.
Aprons are provided for use in the class. Children will have the option to take home the food they’ve cooked along with a recipe sheet so they can practice their new skill at home!
Who can attend?
Kids aged between 7 - 16 years of age.
How many can attend?
Class sizes are limited to 12 participants, to ensure adequate supervision, so bookings are essential.
