Waitrose launches virtual cookery school for kids throughout summer holidays

Waitrose is launching a new virtual Cookery School for kids throughout the summer holiday period, adding to the partnerships range of virtual interactive experiences.

Starting this week Waitrose cooking classes for kids will run for one hour every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday until schools reopen in September.

These classes will teach kids a range of kitchen skills like how to handle knives safely and how to make pastry, while teaching them essential knowledge about ingredients and seasonality.

Only eight households can attend the hour-long lessons at any one time, and each session will cost £10 per participant, not including the list of ingredients needed to take part.

It comes as Waitrose has enjoyed a spike in demand for its online cookery classes for adults during lockdown and builds on the company’s selection of virtual services.

In May Waitrose launched virtual Gin and Wine tasting sessions via Zoom, followed by the roll out of virtual health workshops for its partners in June.

Its stablemate John Lewis also launched a virtual fashion styling service via Instagram in April.

“Our online Waitrose & Partners Cookery School courses have been incredibly popular through lockdown, so we’re thrilled to be opening these up to children as well,” Waitrose Cookery School’s Kirsty Scott said.
