We’ll also supply the recipe so they can make their creation again at home! All ingredients are included. Please ensure that your little chefs wear covered shoes, that long hair is tied back and that they bring a water bottle.


Adults are encouraged to stay and help.
Lessons start at 10.00am with morning tea on arrival and finish at lunchtime with a combined feast of their pizzas
and salad.
