Our interactive workshops are conducted at schools, where we aim to create a positive impact. We inspire students to rely on their instincts and refine their taste and palate. Our workshops focus on building confidence in students' capabilities. Several students we train had never thought they could prepare the dishes they now create, and they gain immense confidence in their ability to cook nutritious and flavourful dishes.

Our pop-up cooking workshops offer more than just entertainment and fun; it also imparts essential skills such as budgeting, cooking homemade meals, reducing the use of preservatives in our food, and highlighting the importance of wholesome whole foods.

Our goal is to make healthy food easily accessible and convenient for everyone. Unlike fast foods, our recipes are designed to offer quick and healthy meal options. As seasoned instructors who have taught eager TY students for more than 8 years, we know that time is crucial in keeping our workshops both engaging and effective!

We aim to demonstrate the basic skills required to cook wholesome and healthy meals and instil the confidence to replicate our recipes at home.

To date, we have held approx 100 of our
week-long workshops & educated over 2,500 pupils.
