Foost Cooking Classes give little chefs big ideas

Friday, 23 February

Budding mini chefs have the opportunity to have fun, be inspired and meet other culinary-inclined children at new Foost Cooking Classes during Eat the Street on Saturday, 10 March.

Kids will join host extraordinaire ‘The Colourful Chef’ on a culinary adventure in this fully interactive cooking workshop.

Young chefs will get the chance to smell, touch, see, cook and taste a range of fresh and colourful ingredients. Each participant will take home their own paper chef’s hat and make their own colourful dish to be enjoyed after the class.

“We have enough places for more than 100 kids over eight classes throughout the day, so you can choose a time that suits, drop-off the kids and let them go wild,” Lismore City Council’s Tourism and Events Services Officer Nathan Dee said.

“For kids who are naturally drawn to food and enjoy cooking and experimenting, these classes are inexpensive, fun and an inspirational way to encourage and grow their love of food.

“With the rise of more cooking television shows and a greater general awareness about cooking and good food, we find that kids are getting into cooking younger and younger. You are never too young to start learning about good nutrition and how to cook healthy, delicious food for the whole family.”

The Foost Cooking Classes are $12 each and will for run for 25 minutes at the Foost Cooking Stage near Woolworths in Carrington Street.

Class times are 12.45pm, 1.30pm, 2.15pm, 3pm, 3.45pm, 4.30pm, 5.15pm and 6pm.
