Dips & Sticks Workshops

WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY OFFERING THIS WORKSHOP – but intend to offer a similar workshop in our new cook school once open in the autumn of 2025.  

Growing Local staff will bring along mobile cookery equipment and set up a temporary kitchen in your classroom or hall.  Working in small groups children will have fun identifying locally grown fruits and vegetables, learn about seasonality and what grows in Herefordshire and prepare and sample a variety of seasonal vegetables, fruits and dips.

Under careful supervision children will practice safe knife skills chopping and slicing a variety of raw vegetables (younger children will use age appropriate ‘safe’ knives) and prepare a range of healthy dips. KS2 children will have a go at our fun ‘Design-A-Dip’ challenge.  At the end of the session children will be encouraged to taste and talk about all the dips and veggie ‘dip sticks’.

1.5 Hour Workshop for a maximum of 16 children. Cook Workshops are available for booking throughout the year. Detailed lesson plans are available on request.
