Kids Kitchen Online: 14th April. FALAFELS

“My kids were screaming times tables at me so I couldn’t hear a thing, I couldn’t find the muffin tray so we freestyled… they enjoyed their meal and it was GREAT FUN!” The Kids Kitchen Collective is real life. And that’s why Zoom has a mute button. Join us. Camera on or off, with creative inspiration or a foggy head. We’ve all got to make lunch, we may as well have some company while we do it. Next Tuesday – founder/director Rebecca and our newest community member Annie, making falafels. From scratch! This is another one of our ‘9 for 5’ activity recipes. . Book here (Bookings will close at 10.15am Tuesday, and after that you’ll receive an email with a ‘zoom’ link to join. Room opens 10.45am, session starts 11am)You don’t need anything special to take part. You don’t even need to be in the kitchen!
