DUKE OF EDINBURGH COOKING CLASSES
Provides a series of fun, interactive cooking classes for teenagers. Giving kids gourmet cooking skills.
Each session is backed by detailed course notes, comprising not only of the recipes so that the students can reproduce the meals over and over again, but also specifies the skills, techniques, and knowledge required to produce the dish to a restaurant quality level.
By learning this way, the students easily understand what they are doing and WHY.
Rather than just following recipes – as we will be doing anyway, understanding what they are doing and why, will make them into competent and, more importantly, confident home chefs.
Kitchen confidence and cooking skills are a powerful life skill.
During each session, there will be opportunities for the students to experiment with different herbs and spices to add different and exciting flavours to their meals.
WHAT IS THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH COOKING CLASS?
Easy Cooking For Kids
Our Duke of Edinburgh cooking classes are fun and educational. While kids are learning to prepare nutritious meals, they are having fun, being entertained, being totally engaged, being stimulated and learning a critical life skill.
Even after only the first session, your child will have developed the confidence to produce a main meal using skills, technique, and knowledge. Other areas covered in this session will be knife cutting skills to bring them to speed in the chopping of vegetables, as well as time management skills.
By the end of session 4, they will be cooking meat to perfection – creating a nice brown and flavourful exterior while the interior is juicy, tasty, and tender!!! They will also be creating delicious tasting vegetables to accompany the meat.
Think what that means to you!
You will have a young master chef to cook for you and the rest of your family and friends restaurant quality meals!!!
Think what that means to your child!
They will have developed new skills that will give them confidence!!!
Imagine what they will have learnt by the 8th session.
This is an opportunity for your child to learn skills that are needed every day – except for the days when you go to a restaurant and pay top $$$$$ (when, instead, your child could be making the dish for you at home for a fraction of the price!!!) Determined to get your child off Facebook, You Tube, computer games, and mobile phones and move them into the kitchen to develop culinary skills? This is a chance for your child to meet other students – form new friendships, put on his/her creativity hat, and start producing restaurant quality meals with confidence and professionalism!!!

WHAT OTHER PARENTS HAD TO SAY ABOUT OUR DUKE OF EDINBURGH COOKING CLASSES?
Phil’s Duke of Edinburgh Program is very impressive. My teenage son found it to be interesting, enjoyable and a great learning experience. The program was highly structured and organised. We have all benefitted from our son’s new cooking skills, but more than that, he has developed a sense of self-confidence and pride in achieving this very important life skill.
I would highly recommend this program.
From personal experience, Phil is a motivational and effective teacher. He instructed my son, Anton, in cooking lessons, which he undertook for his Duke of Edinburgh Award.
I can confidently recommend Phil.
The lessons were great, My daughter Marissa and her friend were so proud of their achievements. They looked forward to the cooking classes and were enthusiastic about each meal prepared.
Phil is a patient and caring teacher. He pitched the classes at just the right level and introduced the girls to new tastes and spices.
Phil Strasser’s Cookery program that he has created for The Duke of Edinburgh Award is brilliant. He is an effective and motivational communicator, very passionate about his subject – which he passes onto his students. My daughter, Ella, did the program and thoroughly enjoyed it.
What is terrific about the program is that it places emphasis on skills and technique when preparing and cooking the meals during the sessions as well as following the recipes that are allocated for each session. Also, the students are encouraged to be creative and add their own individuality to dishes that they create in each session by experimenting with different herbs and spices to add interesting flavours to their meals. It has been a huge benefit as she has been able to regularly put into practice what she has learnt.
I highly recommend this very well structured cookery program.
