Kids' Kitchen cookery videos and recipes

Published: April 22, 2022 at 10:27 am

BBC Good Food's series of Kids' Kitchen videos and recipes will guide you and your children through six essential cookery skills to create a variety of delicious dishes from scratch.

This collection is designed for children aged 7-11 to cook with a little help from an adult, younger children will need extra support. Older children and teenagers can still enjoy making these and may want to adapt or further develop the recipes, swapping in their favourite ingredients, or adding extra spices and seasonings to make them their own.


These Kids' Kitchen recipes are written in step-by-step format, with clear lists of ingredients and equipment, making them easier for children to follow. There will be three recipes to support each new skill; one basic, one which will be more of a challenge and one for more advanced little cooks. It’s worth talking through and practising the cooking skill with your child before cooking the dishes.

These videos and recipes can be followed as you would a cookery course, cooking each dish with your child to help develop their skills and confidence in the kitchen.

We’d love to see what you’ve been cooking, send your pictures to us at or tag us online with #gfkidskitchen.
