Tesco in Pasteur Road has been running a series of special summer holiday cookery workshops to equip youngsters with a range of culinary skills, which they can then put to good use at home.

Dressed in aprons and chef hats, the children have been learning how to whip up a variety of dishes, including homemade pizza, and master the necessary skills so they can recreate them at home.

Yarmouth’s Tesco is one of only 80 stores nationwide that has been running the free three day course as part of the supermarket giant’s Farm to Fork programme. And the classes have gone down a storm in the town with all places fully booked.

Lorraine Underwood, community champion at the store, said the children had thoroughly enjoyed their time in the kitchen.

“The children have been enjoying it and so have the parents,” she said. “There’s been a real emphasis on healthy eating and healthy meals, and they’re learning something they can then take home.”

The classes are being run by the Children’s Food Trust, which runs the largest network of cookery clubs across the UK. The trust team have set up a pop-up kitchen in the canteen and have been taking classes for youngsters aged between four and 13.

The workshops started last week and continue next week but Lorraine said places on all courses had been quickly filled.

She added: “It’s the first year we’ve done them and this is a big trial to see how well it goes down. It’s been 100pc uptake, we’ve got a waiting list for the next one.

“It’s coming across as really, really popular and the feedback has been amazing.”
