Cooking Classes in Newcastle

Knowing how to cook can be one of the great pleasures in life, but the process of learning how to cook can also be fun and rewarding, especially if you are prepared to keep your sense of humour during the inevitable faux pas that is bound to come your way!

Cooking and entertaining is certainly part of South African culture and because we are a nation who loves to entertain outdoors, our interpretation of fine cuisine can often be uniquely simple fare that is quite delicious.

Cooking classes for beginners can take on various guises depending on what you are interested in, but if you are in Newcastle there is no shortage to choose from. 

Add These Popular South African Dishes to Your Repertoire

When it comes to hospitality, South Africans are known for their warmth, enthusiasm and casual style of entertaining. All of this is definitely reflected in our most popular dishes, all of which could be mastered in cooking classes for beginners. 

Ouma’s Melktert

Milk Tart is a much-loved comfort food of many South African tea times. If you don’t have an easy recipe from Ouma, this is something you could easily master in your cooking classes for beginners class. It’s a creamy tart made with egg, flour, milk and sugar which is baked in a light pastry base.   

Fragrant Cape Malay Curry

This popular local curry with its distinctive fragrant spicy flavours from turmeric, saffron, chilli and cinnamon is a must-have for those cold wintry days. 

Pap with Chakalaka

Chakalaka and pap which is a staple side dish to accompany most braais is definitely something that local cooking classes for beginners could offer. It might seem simple but there are neat tricks to achieving just the right consistency for your pap and getting your spicy tomato and onion gravy, just right.  

Traditional Homemade Boerewors

If you’re a lover of South African fare, ensure that your pursuit for cooking classes for beginners offers a lesson on how to make traditional boerewors from scratch!   

Unforgettable Bunny Chow for Fun Times

Perhaps you don’t need cooking classes for beginners to add this fun meal to your collection of easy meals. But it is also something that you could include in cooking classes for kids. They are sure to be especially impressed by the unusual bowls of hollowed-out fresh white bread to hold the spicy mince.

At the end of the day, whether you are looking for cooking classes for beginners to extend your collection of recipes, or whether cooking classes for kids is something you believe could benefit your children, there are wonderful places to start the journey in Newcastle.

In fact, according to BBC, children can be introduced to cooking from a very young age. Not only are cooking classes for kids entertaining, but they are also educational and can set them up for life to have confidence in the kitchen.

Whether it is washing vegetables while you teach them the different names, stirring ingredients, using a potato masher or sprinkling icing sugar on biscuits, kitchen activities for kids have proven to be a time-tested success!

When it comes to cooking classes for kids, the trick is to match appropriate activities to the appropriate ages. In Newcastle, there are heaps of available cooking classes for beginners and also cooking classes for kids, if you can’t find one, you could try some of these activities for your little ones at home.

Cooking Activities with 3-5-Year-Old Kids

Cooking classes for kids can get very exciting from a young age, here are some of the activities you can expect them to learn:

  • Light kneading of dough.
  • Bread crumbing can be a fun process if you set up a little production line of up flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs.
  • Sieving flour – remember to teach them to tap and not to shake the sieve around too violently!
  • Mixing and folding ingredients like butter and flour.
  • Tearing of herbs and lettuce.
  • Using a wooden pestle and mortar.
  • Making icing from water and icing sugar.
  • Spreading icing onto Marie biscuits.
  • Decorating with fruit, hundreds and thousands or even herbs.

When it comes to adults though, not everyone is keen to learn in a group. In this case, you could sign up for cooking classes for beginners with a private cooking teacher. This is a good solution for those who have personal cooking goals to reach. 

By finding a teacher like the ones on Superprof, you could find one located near to you and benefit from the convenience of learning at a pace, time and place that is suitable for you. You could also possibly receive your first lesson free which is a great way to have the peace of mind that you have chosen a teacher who really suits you.

  • Folding
  • Makin pan sauces
  • Making a roux.      
  • Browning
  • Searing
  • Cutting and Dicing    
  • Bread crumbing.  
  • Tempering  

If any of this sounds a little too basic, don’t forget that even those award-winning chefs had to learn these techniques. Not only that, but they continue to implement them on a daily basis throughout their careers!   

So regardless of your reasons for taking cooking classes for beginner, or finding those cooking classes for kids, starting at the beginning could end up taking you places you never imagined. And if you decide that a private cooking teacher is the way to go for you, you will always have the amazing advantage of having someone focus solely on your cooking goals whether those are to master vegetarian, Banting or comforting boerekos meals!
