Secret Garden Kids Cooking Workshop | Herbs

Join us in the learning studio kitchen for a hands on cooking workshop to explore some of the produce that would have been grow in the kitchen gardens of Misselthwaite Manor - the setting for Frances Hodgson Burnett's The Secret Garden.

Each of our special summer holiday cooking classes inspired by The Secret Garden exhibition aims to rejuvenate all participants with the same joy that the characters in the book gained from spending time in. As well as learning about the ingredients, and cooking together each class includes sharing a meal together.

Thursday 11th August :  Herbs – exploring mint, thyme, sage, rosemary
Herbed Yorkshire pudding with veggie sausages & onions
Minted peas
Lemon & thyme muffins

Our classes are labelled as family or kids.

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

This is a kids class

If there are any queries about the class please get in touch with Ceri on
