Splat Cooking launch Molecular Gastronomy and Food Science Parties for children Thursday 6 October 2011 PDF Print SPLAT COOKING LAUNCH MOLECULAR GASTRONOMY AND FOOD SCIENCE PARTIES FOR CHILDREN AND TEENAGERS Splat Cooking, the UK’s leading children’s cooking party company have a created a new range of parties to incorporate cooking and science to make food even more fun. Splat Cooking have been running their highly successful classic Cooking Parties and Cupcake Decorating Parties for the past decade and have taught 1,000s of children and adults to cook through their network of cookery schools and cooking parties. With the interest in molecular gastronomy generated through Heston Blumental and Ferran Adria of El Bulli, the Splat Cooking team, lead by children’s food guru, Beverley Glock, have developed a new range of cooking parties to introduce molecular gastronomy to children. There are three new party themes all complete with mad scientist lab coats and protective goggles. Splatsploding Party – aimed at 5 year olds upwards. A mixture of science and cooking and themed around dinosaurs, space, fashion or fairytales, the children learn to cook as well as taking part in cool, food science experiments such as making edible slime, an exploding volcano and see if the birthday child can ‘walk on custard’. Splattastic Party – aimed at 8 year olds upwards. Pizza, jelly and ice cream with a molecular gastronomy twist. How do you make ice cream in 5 minutes without a freezer? Can you make jelly set in 3 minutes? How do you make fruit flavoured caviar pearls? Mocktails and Canapes Party - aimed at the over 12s. Non-alcoholic cocktails with suspended caviar pearls and a jelly with liquid centre made by reverse spherification, canapés, deconstructed chocolates and homemade chocolates. The parties launch in October and will be available through Splat Cooking’s Franchise network and their team in London, Home Counties, South West and the Midlands and rolling out with new franchises coming on board throughout the UK. Learning is also linked to different areas of the school curriculum – history, geography and science – with teaching about food growing, origins, food culture and food science and an emphasis on the use of seasonal produce. QUOTE “ this is a new and exciting field of cookery we don’t think it should be kept just for adults, it engages children who are interested in science to learn how much fun food and cooking can be” says Beverley Glock, Creative Director for Splat Cooking. ENDS Note to editor: please feel free to come along and join in one of our workshops for children or adults or contact us for photo shoots for these party themes. Splat Cooking runs a range of different seasonal workshops to encourage families back into the kitchen. Creative Director Beverley Glock was one of the first to recognise the importance of family mealtimes and accessible cookery skills to promote good health and wellbeing. Her story makes an excellent business case study.
