Sticky Rice Cooking School in South Australia’s Adelaide Hills, led by founder Claire Fuller, emphasizes the importance of involving primary school kids in cooking to cultivate healthy eating habits. The school provides guided, step-by-step instruction, aiming to make cooking approachable and instill confidence in young learners.
Getting kids in the kitchen helps create healthy eating habits.
Through school programs and holiday classes, kids explore various culinary skills, ingredients, and cultural aspects, fostering teamwork and camaraderie.
Claire stresses the need for practical cooking skills starting in primary school and addresses the potential drawbacks of not teaching children to cook early on. The school tailors menus to accommodate allergies and align with classroom studies, integrating cooking into subjects like mathematics, English, science, and cultural studies.
Sticky Rice Cooking School advocates for real food cooking to promote good nutrition and emphasizes the value of hands-on learning. The school extends its offerings to secondary students, specializing in Asian cuisine, and provides workshops for technical interests. We believe that teaching kids to cook is not only educational but also a fun and essential life skill, encouraging parents to prioritize this activity. Parent and child classes are also available, offering a memorable bonding experience.

One of the standout features of group cooking classes is their inclusivity. Unlike non-hands-on activities that might alienate certain members, cooking classes create a level playing field.
