Our cooking classes are suitable for all years and stages with lessons across most subjects linking to Australian National Curriculum outcomes. Cook In A Box has been designed especially for Primary School teachers, taking away the obstacles to run a hands on, fun and educational cooking class at school.

Even without access to a kitchen, our Cook In A Box lessons can be run anywhere in your school – hall, canteen, outdoor covered learning area or even the classroom. We send you EVERYTHING you need. Even for teachers who may not be confident cooks themselves, or jsut need some help on where to start, Cook In A Box modules include lesson plans, step-by-step teacher guides and instructional videos for students and teachers to watch prior to the class on your smartboard.

You can choose a “One Off” lesson from $4 per student and choose a fun, healthy recipe that your class will enjoy. Cooking classes can be linked to NAIDOC Week, Harmony Day, ANZAC Day, Australian Colonies, Asian Studies, Health/PE or just for fun.
