Patisserie Valerie Sponsors Toots Day Nursery

Patisserie Valerie has recently embarked on a brand-new community venture with Toots Day Nursery; at the request of employee Kaf Butterly, who is a keen cook and eager to pass her love of cooking on to a younger generation.

Kaf is running a weekly cookery club at the nursery with 3-5-year-olds as part of their curriculum. Kathy chooses recipes to suit the abilities of the children. Whilst learning new skills such as weighing, mixing and naming ingredients, the children enjoy the cooking process and finished result, usually producing something totally delicious to take home to their family.

Thanks to the sponsorship provided by Patisserie Valerie, Toots has been able to purchase child-friendly cookery equipment and special ingredients for the more sophisticated recipes on the menu! The children really look forward to their cookery sessions and participate eagerly. They usually work in small groups and are encouraged to make predictions as ingredients are added, whilst following the proper, and usually
traditional, method. On occasion, children can choose a recipe in advance and may go shopping for an ingredient or two.

The management team are very happy with Kaf's cookery club: 'The cookery club adds a special highlight to the children's week and we can see how much the children are enjoying and benefiting from this well-planned activity. It meets several areas within the EYFS and parents have commented favourably regarding the wider variety of sweet and savoury items their children are involved in producing. We are delighted that Patisserie Valerie has taken the opportunity to support our children in this way'
