Junior Cookery

Our exciting Junior Cookery course provides our younger students with two and a half hours of practical cookery each day, using the excellent kitchen facilities at Taunton Prep School.

Students not only learn how to cook delicious, healthy food and significantly improve their culinary skills, they also learn about British Cuisine and where our food comes from, the seasonality of food, its nutritional value and the importance of a balanced diet.

Students will be introduced to a range of new vocabulary, learn a huge number of culinary skills, techniques and methods and every day will see them creating colourful, imaginative and tasty treats. And for those with a competitive edge, there is the chance to win the much coveted ‘Chef of the Week’ contest!

By the end of the course, we expect all of our young chefs to have gained plenty of knowledge, experience and confidence, so that when they return home, they will be able to continue their love of cooking by making delicious treats for their family at home.
