I'm sure you have heard of the resurgence of baking banana bread over the past year. As some foods became difficult to come by we were more aware of not wasting any of it. So, we created innovative ways to use up leftovers. We also turned to cooking and baking to stop us going stir crazy in lockdown.
Cooking became a family activity, something to keep everyone occupied and the best bit was eating the results afterwards. Personally I have churned out more trays of flapjacks in the past year than I care to count. But they are good for you as they are mainly oats, right? (!)
Introducing children to cooking at a young age, or any age in fact (how else will they cope when they finally leave home?) is a worthwhile endeavour. But how do we keep them safe with all those sharp implements about?
We have produced 8 short videos showing different skills needed to keep safe in the kitchen.
