Monthly Clubs
Creative Cooks Clubs, our regular monthly cookery sessions for 11-16 year olds is now an established part of our Cookery School and is held in central Tonbridge, Kent.

The Clubs are held once a month providing practical hands-on cookery and plenty of individual tuition.. Each session combines the importance of eating a healthy, well-balanced diet with good, old-fashioned methods of cookery. There is a strong emphasis on locally produced, seasonal ingredients and Mandy, our resident nutritionist, is fully involved with the preparation of recipes and session content.

Each Club session runs for two and a half hours, at weekends. The children make and create recipes from scratch, including a variety of dishes such as two course meals, snacks, picnics, breakfasts, celebration cakes and puddings. The sessions are geared towards the older child in that everyone is very involved with the whole process of cookery, from initial preparation of ingredients right through to clearing away afterwards!

The monthly clubs currently run just in Tonbridge, Kent, however we are right next to the mainline station so getting to this venue is very easy.

Attendance Policy and Late Fees 
 
To explain further how the club is run: Our clubs are like any other club with a membership and each session is calculated and the cost is spread out evenly. Some months are really expensive on the ingredient front and others not as expensive so the monthly fees are calculated as an even amount each month and the annual membership also helps to cover administration and expensive ingredients, for example when we learn about vanilla or asparagus or rhubarb. 
 
With regard to no shows and notice of non attendance, we try to be as fair as possible: 
 
When we expect to see children and have bought ingredients for them and prepared their literature etc and then they do not turn up on the day we cannot offer refunds or credits.
 
HOWEVER in other circumstances when parents can give plenty of notice that they cannot attend a session where possible we can offer a switch to another comparable session. Or if this is not suitable or not available we can offer free workshop places in lieu of the missed session, and that offer is transferrable to siblings too. 
 
Also if there is someone on a waiting list who can come to a session for a taster session and take your child's place (where there is sufficient notice to organise it) we will credit that missed session back to you. If this is not possible then given there is sufficient notice of non attendance (ie more than two weeks) you will receive a workshop credit.
 
The clubs can only run if invoices are settled on or before their due dates. If invoices are not paid within one week of the deadline (after several reminders) then places will be offered to children on the waiting list. 

WORKSHOPS - School Holiday and Ad-hoc Cookery Sessions
We run a regular programme of workshops during school holidays, plus ad-hoc sessions. Spaces are always under great demand, so early booking is recommended.

School Courses
We also provide secondary school level cookery for leading Tonbridge Girls Grammar School (TOGS). Forming part of their “ActionTriple X” enrichment activity, our specially devised cookery course offers a full and varied programme for girls throughout the school.
