  1. “Grow Cook Enjoy run fantastic after school cooking clubs in a number of schools, and my 9 year old son attends the one at his school. They are fun, hands-on lessons which cover everything from hot cross buns, to fish and chips, to making your own fresh pasta.

    The cost of the lessons includes all the ingredients, there’s no need to provide anything, and your child comes home with something delicious to eat at the end of the day. Grow Cook Enjoy’s owner Jayne is the unique selling point – she has worked as a professional chef and it’s great that the children get to draw on her passion for cooking and wealth of experience.

    I love the ethos of Grow Cook Enjoy – it promotes a sustainable, healthy approach to food and cooking, helping children to develop skills and confidence in the kitchen. Jayne puts a lot of thought into the recipes for each term of cooking, grouping them by themes that the children can relate to and making the learning experience fun.

    Grow Cook Enjoy also run brilliant sessions for adults ( I’ve done chocolates and bread baking so far), as well as cooking parties for children.”

  2. “My daughter has attended these lessons and it has been fantastic.

    The quality of the lessons delivered, ingredients utilised and skills acquired by attendees provide excellent value for money.

    Jayne’s attention to detail, excellent planning and delivery of the lessons are difficult to fault. She is exceptionally passionate about the ingredients, empowering children in the lessons with life skills and having fun whilst doing it.

    I thoroughly recommend them.”

  3. “My daughters absolutely love Jayne’s course, which is run as an after-school club. They’ve learnt a lot about the different ingredients they use (which are all provided) and have acquired many cooking skills. It’s all very hands on.

    They really get the benefit of Jayne’s expertise. Plus they receive a recipe card and bring home a big portion of whatever it is they are making that week (which they also enjoy eating). The classes also alternate between sweet and savoury and incorporate dishes from different countries so they get to make a wide variety of things.

    This course – pitched at children – is brilliant as it really gets them interested in cooking and teaches them an extensive range of techniques.”
