FEATURE: Australian toddlers in training to be chefs

“The editor just howled at me: ‘Who do you think would be interested in this?’” she says she was told after sending through an article about ricotta and mascarpone cheeses. “So it was hard to make headway.”

However, Rogers, whose classes cater to children mostly aged eight to 12, says the recipes she teaches them are down-to-earth, with a typical menu including potato and leek soup, a pesto pasta chicken dish with grape tomatoes, and raspberry, coconut and white chocolate muffins.

“At the end of the day, kids are kids; they don’t really want to eat highly styled meals — well, I don’t think they do. They just want something yummy and delicious,” she says. “I always have to include one thing with chocolate because they are always mad about chocolate.”
