Root Camp is the brainchild of Cassia Kidron. Aimed at 15–21 year olds, these residential courses educate young people about food: where it comes from and how best to cook it.
We caught up with chef Valentine Warner to have chat about his involvement in Root Camp. Plus, we’ve got a fantastic prize for budding young chefs – a free place on a Root Camp course. Read on for more info about the competition. Continue reading →
Root Camp is a (literally) groundbreaking field-to-fork venture for 15-21 year-olds, and we’re proud to support it.
On this hands-on cookery course, youngsters learn about everything from farming and sourcing to cooking for others, and the whole process is taught in a fun and creative environment.
The aim is to turn up the heat on your kid’s culinary enthusiasm, to inspire them, and to help give them the skills for leading an independent life.
Activities include foraging, harvesting and fishing; debates and guest speakers; and learning to cook delicious, nourishing food – from bread to soups and sauces. The course counts towards The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award too.
