Discover Our Story

Little Chefs Big Chefs CIC has a central ethos which stresses the importance of a healthy diet and the teaching of kitchen skills and better cooking methods. Our primary objective is children and families as developing good eating habits from a young age not only helps children develop physically but also starts the roots for maintaining a good diet for the rest of their lives and hopefully preventing many health issues.

During all sessions, we encourage full participation thus ensuring that we have full attention and engagement throughout. Cleaning up during and after the workshops are a vital part of the session too.

We broach on many topics including food sources, food horticulture, avoiding waste (which can impact the environment) and using food to bring communities together. Above all, the workshops are delivered with patience, support and understanding yet are fun and informative.

As the lead (Joanne Iceton), I am aware of sensory processing disorders, autism, co-ordination issues and learning disabilities.

Our cooking workshops can be delivered within many venues and schools.
We are based in the Bishop Auckland area but can work throughout County Durham.

Up to date DBS, public liability, first aid, food safety and safeguarding certificates can be requested if wished.
