The ultimate Cooking Party. We bring all the ingredients, utensils and party kit, we provide a cooking party experience for the children and help them make their own lunch or tea (so you don't have to do any catering or running around), you sit back with a nice glass of wine or cup of tea and watch the children have a great time learning about food, ingredients and cooking techniques. All you need to provide is the venue, the children, drinks for the children and a birthday cake if the children aren't making it at the party.
Whilst the children are eating the food they have just made we sort out the party bags (the children make something to take home in their party bag too) and clear up the food preparation area. We're currently focused on the Home Counties (mainly Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire) so please Contact Us if you'd like us to run it for you.
We will also adapt one of our workshops such as Fantasy Fairy Cakes or Edible Christmas Pressies or Mini Gingerbread Houses instead of running a traditional cooking party and the children will take home a box of lovely goodies. Splat Parties include:
- Ingredients and Utensils
- Aprons to use at the party
- Chef's Hats
- Party Bags
- Cookie Cutter or pack of cake cases for each child for party bags
- Laminated Recipe Card for each child
The menus are tailored to the age of the birthday boy or girl and we'll discuss these at the time of booking. The children usually make a savoury and sweet to eat at the party and something chocolatey to take home in their party bags. Please let us know if any children have allergies or specific dietary requirement as we may be able to adapt the menus to suit. We use good quality ingredients, fair trade where feasible, high cocoa content couverture chocolate, free range eggs always (we like happy chickens) and avoid the use of hydrogenated vegetables oils and fats where possible. We offer standard menus or healthier versions using more fruit and vegetables, e.g.. blackcurrant muffins instead of chocolate fairy cakes. If you wish the children can make the birthday cake too, there is an additional cost of £12.50 for this.
- Up to 6 children £190
- Up to 12 children £295
- Up to 15 children £365
- More than 15 Children is subject to prior agreement £25per additional child
If you would like to include aprons for the children to use at the party and take home you can upgrade to our white cotton apron, which the children can decorate at the party, for an additional £5.25 per apron. Please note that for the apron decorating we will add on an additional 30 minutes at the beginning of the party for the children to decorate their aprons and there will a charge of £12 in addition to the apron price
Please call us for availability before booking, we will require a £50 non refundable deposit (£150 non refundable deposit for parties of 15 children or over) to hold the party time and date and allocate Cookery Leaders, once agreed we will send you out via email the party booking confirmation paperwork, one week before the party we will confirm the number of children and the outstanding amount will be payable. All our Cookery Leaders hold a current CIEH Level 2 Award in Food Safety as well as completing our own training course. Beverley also holds Advanced Food Hygiene Certificates. They hold enhanced DBS certificates and have full insurance for cooking with children. Depending on your location there may be a mileage charge, we will discuss this with you at the time of booking and do our best to allocate the closest party organisers possible
