Brisbane kids’ cooking classes!

Why choose us?

Kids love having a go at all cooking skills. Our classes are uniquely kept small and therefore they are not just stir-a-bowl or watching lessons!

Since 2002 the qualified classroom teacher has been running Brisbane cooking workshops and also in the UK and has vast experience with children of all ages and abilities.

Creativity is a messy and important part of childhood but don’t worry, we clean up!

We can cater for students of all abilities; inquisitive cooks, creative minds, beginners and even help fussy eaters.

Our lessons are taught in a commercial-class kitchen with on-street parking and lots of local cafes and bushwalks right here. 

Strategies that Come and Cook are now implementing to operate during these times;

1. We request that people (students and family members) displaying flu like symptoms do not come to workhops.
2. Students are to wash their hands for 20 seconds with warm water and soap before their lessons and afterwards. . Antibacterial soap and  towels are provided in the bathroom.
3. Come and Cook have a high level of cleaning and disinfecting surfaces in the kitchen facility.
4. The classes are limited to a maximum of 8 per workshop.
5. Come and Cook is making plans for  Zoom workshops coming soon.


Parent of ADHD child

Karen, I want to let you know that because of your business and programs you run for kids who want to learn how to cook, my daughter has gained confidence and brought those skills home, with her own little cooking draw of utensils. She is out making scrambled eggs for us for breakfast now! We can’t always attend every holidays, and we are a little far away to do a weekly course, but she is better for attending even a couple of courses! She struggles with ADHD inattentive and teaching her skills of following a recipe and structure helps to improve her exec functioning! So does her dance and any physical activity! So thank you for sharing your love of cooking!!

Birthday party Mum June 2019

What a brilliant time we had at Come and Cook for our daughter’s 10th birthday. The kids learned, sang, danced and cooked some amazing dishes. An absolute ball and Karen made it fun. They all want to go back! Thanks Karen

Make, Bake and Take workshop June 2019

What a great experience for my two girls. They loved every minute of it. Was also awesome as they got to make things and actually eat them when usually they wouldn’t have even tried it.
Thank you so much for showing Lilly and Chloe the cooking. They had such a great time

Regular school holiday student

My son LOVES coming to “Come and Cook” on the school holidays. He has learned how to cook many fabulous dishes from scratch, he has become more confident in the kitchen and he has been taught skills that he will use for the rest of his life. Karen is both kind and patient with her students. June 2018

Birthday Parties

Karen runs a smooth operation for both young and old. She involved all participants equally at our birthday party in the preparation and serving of food. Her approach is personal and hands-on, setting her apart from others. Many of the guests commented on what an excellent day it was. These life skills are preparing them for the future in an entertaining and enjoyable atmosphere. July 2018

Catering for food intolerances

My son loved Karen’s course! Karen is super flexible and tailored the ingredients for him based on his food intolerances which was so appreciated. He came home with an array of delicious breakfast food and I’ve not been able to get him out of the kitchen since 🙂 Can’t recommend Come and Cook Highly enough!

July 2019 Taste of Asia workshop

My girls loved this course and came home with such impressive treats. We’ll be back!

July 2019 Mum

My sons, Sonny and Logan, absolutely LOVED the class. Thank you so much. We are looking forward to an evening of asian delights very soon!

Taste of Asia – School Holiday workshop

The class was very hands on and the teacher was very helpful and explained everything thoroughly. I really enjoyed learning how to make different types of food. It was delicious! July 2019

Mum impressed by weekly Dinner Club

10/11/2016 I get more and more impressed with Ben each week wanting to eat the food he makes at Come and Cook classes.  We can never get Ben to try these kind of foods but due to him cooking the food he is happy to try everything and eat most of it”.
