School Holiday Cooking Experiences

Get the kids out of the house these winter school holidays with our specialised children's cooking classes. Through a range of easy, safe, and delicious lessons, Sydney Seafood School aims to encourage the next generation of young cooks on their culinary journey, getting them interested in the way their favourite foods are made.

Throughout the school holidays, kids between the ages of 7-13 years can participate in delicate dumpling making, sensational sushi roll assembly, or work on perfecting their pasta technique. Each class includes a lesson by qualified professionals, fresh ingredients sourced directly from Sydney Fish Market producers, and a take-home recipe kit and cloth apron.
