Rebecca organised our event including a 2 hour Cookie Making Session for our daughter's party in our village, as above. We are absolutely delighted with this company and the service and with both of them [staff] and we felt compelled to write a review. The setting up was done very efficiently (by phone, SMS and email) and they gave us very useful advice and guidance. I spoke to or emailed Rebecca several times and nothing seemed too much trouble. They arrived in very good time and provided all of the elements of the party which are promoted on their website. The 20 children were entertained brilliantly for a whole 2 hours including making lovely cookies from start to finish. They enjoyed party games and also a healthy lunch which seemed to go down well. All of the feedback we have received from Mums and Dads on the day and subsequently was exceptional and it seems Cook Stars may be getting more bookings as a result! They also did all the clearing up! They were lovely to work with and they took all the pressure off two busy and proud parents. Well worth the money in our view. We would happily book them again. A big thank you.
We had a Cook Stars party on Saturday for my youngest daughter Amber's 4th birthday. Her and her friends made cookies and shared a delicious lunch together. I want to say a big big thank you to Rebecca and the lady who helped her that day. They were fantastic with the children and provided a superb party for my little girl. It was well organised and such a lovely difference to the 'normal' run of the mill play centre and disco parties. 5 stars definitely! Thank you so much. I would highly recommend a 'cookstars' party xXx
Thank you so much for hosting Elliots 2nd Birthday party! Everyone (kids and adults) really had a fantastic time! We all enjoyed designing chefs hats, decorating cookies, making edible jewellery (and eating all the ingredients haha!). The party food was delicious, plenty of choice with lots of healthy options and sweet treats! Nothing was too much trouble from start to finish making it the most stress free child's party I've ever been too! Thank you all so much for making Elliots birthday extra special! Id highly recommend the parties to all ages :) We look forward to hopefully starting the Cook Star classes soon as well :) xx
Just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for doing Grace's party 🎉 You did such a fantastic job....it was so organised & amazingly 'calm'! The kids had a wonderful morning & Grace was super happy with her party! 😀 One of my friends said it was the best party she has been to 👍 Thank you so much again for everything & making Grace's party a fantastic one.
As a mum of 4 I dread the whole birthday party planning, but this was Amazing ! The Cook Stars Party Leaders, took control of everything from the minute they arrived which meant for the first time I could actually relax and enjoy the party too. All the girls loved the cooking, and the great balance of fun games thrown in. It really was much more than I expected and fantastic value for money. I'd highly recommend the little 'bake your own' kits as an extra for party bags too - so cute !"
Feedback from a school: Today I have received some great feedback, one of the Mums said that her daughter was 'buzzing' and they all enjoyed doing the craft activity while the muffins were cooking. One of our members of staff popped in the kitchen for something else and noticed that you were well organised and that all the children were engaged. Also we were very pleased to see a clean kitchen this morning! Thank you so much, it's just what we needed.
"I took my 3 year old today to make his own picnic workshop and we both had a great time. It is very well organised lots of activities including making shortbread, pizza whirls, a rainbow wrap, a dip and some pepper and carrot sticks. The food tasted really yummy and we are going to book again. Overall was great value for money."
Myself & Alfie love our weekly Cook Stars class. It is a friendly and relaxed environment where you can spend some time having fun and cooking together. The recipes are really yummy and it also introduces Alfie to some new foods that he may not have tried before. The fact that your own kitchen stays nice & clean is a bonus!
The food is always delicious and because Dylan wants to try what he cooks he finds lots of new foods he likes.
Although we do baking and pizza making together at home, she's had the opportunity to make a wide variety of dishes from cannelloni and rough puff veggie pasties to biscuits and delicious fruit crumbles. There's never very much left for me to sample!
My daughter thoroughly enjoys the cookery classes. She particularly enjoys weighing out the ingredients herself and is keen to try out new foods. She also loves the craft activities that we do whilst the food is cooking such as making a chef's hat and a personalised Mother's Day gift out of salt dough.
Ethan has learnt many skills which I simply hadn't thought to let him try at home. We are provided with beautiful recipe cards so we can make our favourite things at home.
Cook Stars is a fantastic and unique activity. All the children are engaged in the class and are helped to explore different recipes. Children feel very welcome in classes and there is s a relaxing atmosphere for parents. Both of us feel very welcome at classes and have so much fun.
Lizzie loves getting her hands dirty at Cook Stars whilst mixing all the ingredients together. She loves 'sampling' what's in her mixing bowl as she goes along, and I love sampling the finished treat at the end of the class!! Lizzie learns how to be a proper little cook... She even gets to do a fun craft activity while her creation is being cooked...
I love watching my daughter's cooking skills and food knowledge develop from week to week, it is lovely to see her so immersed in the class and doing it all by herself (with the ever helpful Chef Cathy close by!). She is learning new recipes all the time and to see her face light up when we take her finished cooking back home to Mum to try, is a very proud moment for me every time!
Our 6 year-old daughter loves coming to the classes. After each class she is filled with pride as she tells us all about how she made the dish she's brought home and we can all taste it together. Cooking in such a relaxed environment with other children means she is developing her social skills as well as learning about different foods that she might not have tried at home.
Millie thoroughly enjoys coming to her cookery class. It is lovely to spend time with her individually within a group setting. Her finished articles aren't always as planned but she enjoys eating them and she is very proud when other members of our family praise her on her cooking prowess!
It's official, Cathy and her team are amazing! We recently had a party for my daughter's 5th birthday and it was somewhat challenging for Cathy! The ovens at the venue broke less than a week before the party and Cathy worked to find a solution and pulled it out of the bag in style! The children loved every minute of weighing their own ingredients, baking their own cakes and decorating them. The novel Smarties cookie mixture party bags also went down a storm. A brilliant company who were a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend them.
Fantastic birthday party organised for my 4 year old! The children were kept entertained at all times and Cathy & the team were brilliant! Something completely different.
Recently been to a cooking party and my daughter thought it was fantastic! Very professional looking brand and lovely ideas to go with the party- chefs hats, edible necklaces, colouring papers etc. well done!
