To help all my fellow parents who have been thrust into unexpectedly home schooling their children for the first time this week, I'm launching Eats Amazing's first ever live cook-along sessions! Read on for details...
Inspired by all the brilliant live events springing up all over the internet (hello P.E. lessons with Joe Wicks!) I've decided to add my little corner of the internet into the mix, and offer live cook-along sessions for parents and children, twice a week over on the Eats Amazing Facebook page.
Our cook-alongs will be happening every Tuesday and Thursday at 11am (UK time), starting from this Thursday, 26th March 2020.
My plan is for each session to consist of a main recipe, for which I will be providing in advance a free child-friendly printable recipe sheet in addition to the normal recipe card you can find at the end of every recipe post. Once we've got the main recipe in the oven (if it's a cooked dish), then we'll try a really simple bonus fun food tutorial as well, while our food cooks or bakes.
You can join in with whichever part you like, and if you can't make it live, all the videos will be available after the event so you can cook along at a time that better suits you.
All recipes will be super simple, so that even young children can join in. We may progress to slightly more advanced recipes as time goes on, but to start with, I'm going to keep it as simple as possible.
You'll find a list of recipes for upcoming sessions over on the Eats Amazing Live Cook-Along Sessions for Kids page, so you can print off them off and source your ingredients before the day. I'll try to make the recipes available as far in advance as possible, but please bear in mind that I'm also trying to home school my own kids around my working day!
This week, we'll be starting with a super simple 2 ingredient recipe for banana oat cookies. I'm very aware that it may be tricky to get hold of ingredients at the moment, so I've chosen a recipe that is egg free, flour free and free from dairy products too - all you need are bananas and oats, plus whatever optional mix-ins you have in the cupboard.
Head over to the Eats Amazing Live Cook-Along Sessions for Kids page for a link to the full recipe and printable child-friendly recipe sheet, plus a link to this week's bonus fun food tutorial too!
Hope to see you there, and remember, if you can't make it, don't worry, you can catch up whenever you want! I'll pop the link to each cook-along video over on the main page as well as in the individual recipe posts so you can cook along in your own time.
PS Please feel free to request recipes, I'll do my best to accommodate where possible! Just comment on this post or drop me an email on email@example.com and I'll see what I can do!
