CHILDREN in Barnston are learning that making good food can be fun thanks to weekly cookery classes each Monday and Tuesday.

The classes, called Cookies, are run by mother-of-three, Carole Rose, who was taught to cook as a child by her nan. They are held in Barnston Village Hall between 1pm and 2pm.

"Cookies has been running now for almost four years and is for pre-school children from the age of two-and-a-half and their parents.

"It is a fun but educational workshop that introduces children to new ingredients and skills. We make everything from quiches and muffins to tarts and pies," she said.

Mrs Rose said the recipes are child friendly and weighing is kept to a minimum with ingredients being measured by the spoon or handful. Working with hot items is done by the adults.

"We alternate each week between sweet and savoury. That way the children experience many different foods and skills. It is amazing how many parents bring children who are fussy eaters only to find they'll eat something because they have cooked it."

For details call Mrs Rose on 01371 873641.
