Children's Cooking Class

Cooking School

No one is born a great cook, one learns by doing

At Stable Futures, we are fortunate to offer cooking experiences to all our learners within an indoor and outdoor environment. We offer a more commercial kitchen environment at the farm site, to learning how to cook on an open fire at the Paddock, referred to as ‘Wild Cooking’.



  • Cooking is a necessary life skill that everyone needs to know in order to survive.

  • Cooking promotes healthy eating habits and can teach students about nutrition.

  • Cooking can be a fun and creative activity that helps young people bond with friends and family.

  • Cooking can help students save money and eat better.

  • Cooking can change the student’s mindset and help them discover a cooking career.

  • Cooking promotes a healthy lifestyle.

The physical environment, both in and outdoors will support children's learning, safety, levels of engagement and access to positive experiences and inclusive relationships.


Our curriculum intends for our young people to develop a passion for planning and creating nutritious, economical and tasty home cooked food. Young people learn and demonstrate food hygiene, preparation and safety practice alongside focus on nutritional needs, the importance of a healthy and balanced diet, food provenance and global impact.


We teach the students key technical skills and cooking methods to be creative and to develop an interest in the world around them.  Our topics to enhance these skills and interests include healthy eating, sustainability and world foods. We take students out of the classroom into settings within the food industry to give them an experience of learning beyond the classroom.  

 Through our practical sessions, we develop students' love for cooking, to be resilient when making new dishes and we then celebrate their achievements in the sharing of food.

We want students to be challenged, to show progression and to feel a sense of pride. Activities such as competitions, cross-curricular activities and even a pop-up cafe feature within the curriculum.
