The Oakfield at Chester Zoo


Are you aged between 14-17? Do you love cooking? Are you a member of the zoo? If so this course will be perfect for you!

What we eat and how we cook affects our health and the health of our planet. Issues such as food sourcing, waste reduction and food preparation are areas all linked to food security and the impact on our environment.

We have an exciting opportunity for you to join our top chefs at The Oakfield to explore the world of sustainable cooking. This three day course will take you through practical workshops, demonstrations by industry experts and a chance to explore the links to our wider work in conservation. You will be creating a dish each day culminating in a MasterChef style competition with an opportunity to impress our Head Chefs and special guests (Simon Radley – Simon Radley at the Chester Grosvenor, and Brian Mellor – Harthill Cookery School).

This is a three day course. Each day runs from 10 – 4.30


Please remember that these events are for Junior Members aged 14-17 only. We will require you to fill in a short questionnaire when booking to ensure we have all of the relevant contact details and information in advance of the first session. There are a limited number of spaces.
