Children’s cooking classes

Children’s cooking classes

Tot Cross Buns is a  new cookery class for children aged from 2 years old to 5 years old. The business is the brain child of Allison Woolford, a Basingstoke mum who is passionate about cooking and wants to pass on this passion to children – giving them confidence with food and encouraging them to try new tastes and have fun in the kitchen with mum and dad.

Allison says:

‘I am a home cook for my husband and my little girl, Lilly. I believe that every child should have fun cooking, tasting and exploring food, having the confidence to try new things. This is what made me start fun and educational children’s cooking classes at Tot Cross Buns.”

Fun and Relaxed

The aim of Tot Cross Buns is to introduce children to food through taste, smell and touch all in a fun and relaxed environment. They’ll be cooking healthy recipes (some treats too!), which have all been tried and tested, and will involve the children every step of the way – and there will be no washing up to worry about!

Food Related Activity

The classes will involve cooking anything from muffins and scones to pizza and quiche and while they’re cooking there will be a fun food related activity. This could be anything from exploring textures and tastes to planting seeds.

Course Details and Prices

With just 8 children per class the environment is relaxed and friendly – and above all fun. The courses run for 5 weeks  and cost £40.00. Sessions will last 45 minutes, though you should allow an hour, and children will be able to take home their goodies to share with friends and family.


Allison is CRB/DBS checked with a Food Safety Hygiene Certificate and First Aid Qualification.
