Kids vs. Kitchen Party

Children work in teams and challenge each other to an exciting cook off.

We allow the older children to work in two teams and encourage them to be independent of the Chefs which act more as facilitators than run the actual party.

The children are given a theme (discussed with parents prior to the party). They are then tasked with planning the entire event from selecting the leaders and delegating tasks, to planning the menu and preparing it. They will be provided with a large selection of ingredients and must prepare the meals which will be served to a parent and the chef as final judges (as well as judging each other).

Added challenge — THE EXTREME WHISK OFF… we have an internal challenge for this to see who is the best Little Cooks Club whisker…

Judging is done on presentation, creativity and taste, and everyone will always leave a winner with one winning team.
