National Vegetarian Week 2023
With thanks to our partner Linda McCartney Foods we cooked with 5,000 schoolchildren during National Vegetarian Week. The children cooked Mary McCartney's delicious vegetarian lasagne!
Our kits include the exact ambient ingredients, step-by-step recipe cards, skills cards with QR codes that link to videos of children cooking and a booklet packed with fun facts about the ingredients inside the box. The Cook School recipe kits teach children and students how to cook a delicous, vegetarian meal independently for their families.
Cook School is a not-for-profit organisation that was started a few years ago now. Our Co-founder, Amanda Grant, is a children’s food writer and cookbook author. We help children to understand food and how to cook. We think it's really important to know how doing both of these things can help us all to be healthy and to have a healthier planet. We've taught over 100,000 children so far.
I was so bowled over by their philosophy and how brilliantly the kids cooked and how delicious our dinner tasted that I immediately signed up for their bi-monthly subscription service
Making everything super easy for family members of all ages
Can’t recommend these cooking boxes for kids more highly.
Parents, we must step away from the pans. The time has come for them to cook for us.
It can sometimes be difficult to come up with an easy to follow meal that kids would get excited about cooking, this is where Cook School comes in!
Both Co-Founders Kristian Dean and leading food educator and award-winning children’s cookbook author Amanda Grant are passionate about offering accessible and affordable recipe boxes to help teach kids to cook, learn a new skill and lead a healthier lifestyle.
