Inspire your young chefs with the Curious Kids Summer Workshops

The Curious Kitchen is offering budding chefs the chance to learn from the best with a series of Kids’ Summer Workshops during August.

From pizza or cupcake making to learning chocolate skills, the workshops will inspire chefs of the future to create masterpieces under the guidance of expert chefs at the two AA Rosette restaurant, at the Aztec Hotel and Spa.

The workshops are £18 per adult and child, with additional children £8 and not only include the professional tuition and a finger buffet, but also an hour relaxing in the hotel’s fabulous spa.

Cupcake Making – 2 and 23 August – learn how to make and decorate elegant cupcakes

Pizza Making – 16 August – create the base and then select from delicious toppings

Chocolate Work – 9 and 30 August – be taught how to temper chocolate and make fudge before decorating cookies and chocolate-dipping strawberries and fudge

The Curious Kitchen launched in May 2019 and was awarded its second AA Rosette in July.  The restaurant sees the vision of executive head chef, Marc Payne, become a reality with the use of traditional techniques such as pickling, smoking and curing meats being used to ensure the best use of ingredients in all the restaurants dishes. 

Marc Payne said: ‘These Curious Kids Summer Workshops will be a fun and informative way to either introduce children to cooking or to improve their skills.  We will be making things that they love such as pizzas, cupcakes and chocolate, so they will be able to enjoy tasting what they produce.’

The Curious Kitchen offers traditional favourites with a fine dining twist.  Diners will love the rustic design with contemporary furnishings and artwork depicting the local area.  The al-fresco terrace offers a beautiful outdoor dining option and the Garden Room is perfect for private dining events for up to 24 people.
