Focusing on encouraging children to get creative with cooking, the TOZINI classes will teach them how to make the popular Italian dishes of pizza, filled pasta, biscotti and gelato. With each lesson welcoming up to just six children at a time, they are designed to make sure that each child receives plenty of guidance and hands-on tuition.

The classes will teach the children how to create each dish completely from scratch; from making their own pasta and pizza dough to choosing their ingredients, children will go through each stage of the cooking process before tucking into their finished products.

What’s more, they will be treated to an authentically Italian experience, being taught by the restaurant’s Head Chef, Maurilio Molteni, with assistance from the enthusiastic all-Italian kitchen team. Priced at just £10 each the classes are great value for money, not only offering the children an entertaining way of spending their afternoons followed by a delicious meal which they will be proud to have created themselves, but also providing them with valuable life skills.

The first TOZINI class will take place on Tuesday 8th April 2014 and from then on will take place every Tuesday and Thursday from 3:30pm – 5pm during the Easter, half-term and summer school holidays. Pizza and filled pasta will be taught during the one week breaks, while the longer holidays will also include the option to learn how to make biscotti and gelato.
