Half Term Family Cooking Workshop | Oranges & Lemons

Join us in the learning studio kitchen for a hands on cooking workshop to explore cooking with oranges and lemons

For this half term workshop we’ve been inspired by the tangerine painting currently on display at our Lucian Freud: Plant Portraits exhibition, but tangerines & lemons doesn’t have quite the same ring to it does it?  In the class we will explore cooking with these seasonal citrus fruits which are famously paired together in the old English nursery rhyme about church bells in London. Their mention is supposedly linked to the church bell’s proximity to the wharves on The River Thames where citrus fruits were shipped into London in previous centuries.

As well as learning about various types of oranges and lemons, and cooking together the class includes sharing the meal you’ve made.

Broccoli Lemon Pasta Bake

Our classes are labelled as family or kids.

  • Family classes are for  young children aged 5-7 years (and older) old who attend with a parent or guardian (adults are invited to get stuck in with the cooking also).
  • Kids classes are for children aged 8-12 (and older) who attend without supervision. Parent/guardians can drop off their children and then enjoy spending time in the Museum or Garden Cafe while we cook. We do ask you to stay on-site for the duration of the class.

This is a family class

If there are any queries about the class please get in touch with Ceri on ceri@gardenmuseum.org.uk
