What you will do
1 hour workshop
Come and have fun with us at Pasta n’ play. We will teach your kids to make simple and delicious recipes.
At Pasta n’ Play we believe in the importance of learning the benefits of a healthy balanced diet from a very early age. In fact, cooking can make kids try more foods as they tend to be more willing to taste different things if they are making it themselves.
We encourage curiosity whilst keeping the little ones engaged and educate. By allowing the kids to use various cooking items, we help them to develop their fine motor skills, senses and expand their vocabulary. They will try new flavours, textures and they learn whilst having fun.
Why us? We make everything from scratch only with organic, seasonal, healthy ingredients.
At the end of each class the children take home recipe and a bag full of their masterpieces.
What do the kids do during the class?
We prepare together a simple and healthy recipe with the kids. The kids will have the recipe at home with some instructions on how to cook it and serve it.
The class will last approximately for 1.5 minutes.
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
This is a Flexitime class, which means the teacher can run this class around your schedule.

About your host, Pasta 'n Play
I am Vicky and my passion for cooking started more than 30 years ago when I used to watch my Grandmother preparing food for our family. I was not only watching but on some lucky occasions, I took part in the process. My tasks as Nonna’s assistant chef were messing around with flour and playing with the dough. I started learning like this, having fun and playing and this is how my cooking classes are. I now want to spread the passion for good and healthy food in London. I moved here 6 years ago and since then I have been feeding hundreds of people using the techniques learned from my grandmother. I have a background in tax law. I worked as a tax advisor during the week and cookery tutor during the weekend for almost three years, until pregnant when I decided to quit the office job for a more adventurous career. I decided to start my own cookery school. I tested the recipes on friends first and then started advertising the class: online, through directories and social media; on the street, with flyers and through word of mouth. The classes grew to the point where I was running them every weekend. “I enjoy it so much and it fits so well around my family. I am finally doing the job of my dreams” says Vicky. My mission is to educate people on how much fun it can be to cook together with family and friends. But the benefits don’t stop there...It also makes everyone eat healthier food! The recipes I cook are simple but extremely tasty, made only with the best ingredients. I take great care of the environment using only organic products and carefully picking my suppliers. I have a zero-waste policy in place and the use of plastic is reduced where possible. I strongly believe that everyone should have access to good and healthy food and for this reason, I am an active volunteer in the local community. I collaborate with the Camden Health Kick, a project that aims to offer free healthy activities to increase the health of the community members.
Kids should bring a lunch box, although I do provide disposable lunch box.
All students under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
