Family Online Cookalong Session | Festive Baking

This autumn term the Garden Museum will be running short family feasts cooking sessions online on select Saturday mornings. Join us from your home kitchen!

Join us for this fun, festive Christmas baking family cookalong, where we’ll learn how to make a savoury puff pastry Christmas tree, filled with cream cheese and our own homemade pesto. Pastry novices amongst you might like to know we will use shop bought puff pastry for this dish, making it easy as pie!

While the tree bakes, we’ll stir up a warming mulled apple juice that the whole family can enjoy.


  • Savoury puff pastry pesto and cream cheese Christmas tree
  • Mulled Apple Juice


The session will be held on zoom software, available through a desktop, laptop, or smart phone and a private link to access the class as well as the recipes and ingredients list will be sent out to participants at least 5 days before the class. Our online classes adhere to an online code of conduct, a copy of which will be sent out too.

As usual, our sessions are for small groups, for maximum interaction. Our family sessions are geared towards children aged 5-10, and they will need to be supervised throughout by an adult.

If you aren’t able to make this session keep checking back here regularly for updates. New sessions will be added on a monthly basis while we we review the possibility of returning to in-person sessions.

All sessions will be led by our Food Learning Officer Ceri, from her home kitchen.

Cost £2 per family*, with free places available for those based in Lambeth who need them to be.  Please email to enquire about free places.

Sessions take place from 10.30-12pm.

*Note: These classes are subsidized to keep prices affordable. Participants will be responsible for sourcing their own ingredients for the cookalong sessions, we estimate the total cost for ingredients for each session to be £8-10 (much less if you have a full store cupboard of staples). We understand that plans change, but since spaces on these classes are very limited we would appreciate a 48 hour notice period if you wish to cancel your place so that it can be passed onto another family.
