I am Marisna Strauss and I’m very excited about bringing Little Cooks Club to Bloemfontein!
I grew up in the Western Cape, later moved to Dewetsdorp in the Southern Free State and then moved to Bloemfontein after my husband and I got married. I’ve studied at UFS and completed my Honours degree in Consumer Science with food and nutrition as my main subjects. I’ve also completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Education and have taught various subjects at a couple of schools in and around Bloemfontein.
The kitchen has always been my happy place. Since I was a little girl I’ve enjoyed playing in the kitchen, experimenting and learning new stuff. Later in my life that developed into a passion for cooking and baking, always trying to develop recipes by making it better and healthier. To share my passion with children has always been a dream to me. I believe there are lots of little cooks in Bloemfontein that have the same love for food and the kitchen. Unfortunately, these days, parents have busy schedules and don’t always have the time or energy to spend quality time in the kitchen with the little ones. Little Cooks Club is the perfect opportunity for kids to come and explore the kitchen, play with food, be introduced to the world of flavours and nutrition and where they will be encouraged to be creative while having an awesome time with food and friends.
I can’t wait for all the little cooks in Bloemfontein to come and join me in the kitchen!
