Let the Kids Learn, Cook and Create at The Kitchen Parsons Green



Food and meals are a great way to bring the family together, but in this crazy world that we live in, with work,

football, swimming, band, choir, tennis and ballet classes, it is hard enough to organize a sit down meal together,

never mind cook a meal together then sit down and enjoy it together.


Business owners and parents, Natalie Richmond and Thierry Laborde know this, and in response to the busy lives

we all live, have created a place where you really can ‘do it all’ as a family outing called, The Kitchen Parsons Green 

that not only provides a place for you and your family to spend time together, but also loads of out of classroom learning

that your children won’t even notice has been snuck in.


Whether it is stirring, kneading, pouring or squeezing, cooking involves all the practical necessities of life learning.

Reading is practiced as a recipe is read, followed and prepared; maths is practiced through counting and measuring

and science is learned as children see how the composition of the food changes during the cooking process. From

cooking, kids also learn a lot about nutrition, problem solving, and social skills while improving their self-esteem

as they children create with their hands something to be enjoyed by themselves and others.


The Kitchen Parsons Green provides cooking classes for kids as well as some for family that are sure to get your kids

interested and excited about food, and the best part is you and the kids get to take your creations home after to sit

and enjoy together as a family!


The hour long cooking class is aimed at children ages four to nine years old. Every Saturday, The Kitchen Parsons Green 

has ‘Saturday Kids Club’ where Mums and Dads can bring their children for an hour long session of food creation,

everything from cookies and milkshakes to pizza and pancakes.


This Saturday, November 7, they will be doing a Mini Meals class at 12:30 the price is £15 per child or £25 for

two children.


The Kitchen Parsons Green is located at 275 New Kings Road, London, SW6 4RD.
