Welcome to Varuboden’s cooking class for children! In the class, children get to prepare a delicious dish from Åland apples. Taste different kinds of apples and use them to make the Harvest Festival’s äppelmums (apple yummies) with caramel glaze. This delicious treat is suitable as a snack or dessert.
The cooking class has stations for several little chefs at a time. When one child finishes, the next in line can take their place. Each station is equipped with a cutting board, apple slicer and knife. Supervisors are on site to guide all the little chefs. We prepare the apple yummies in a frying pan.
This is a perfect opportunity for children to learn more about our delicious fruit, the apple. Did you know that 70% of our domestic apples are grown in Åland?
The cooking class ends with the children eating the meal they prepared. All the talented little chefs get to take the recipe and a surprise home.
Age: Old enough to handle a knife, about 4–12 years.
The children participate while the parents wait. It all takes about 20–30 minutes/child. The event is free, and Varuboden invites all children to the activity!
PLEASE NOTE! The knives are sharp, the frying pan is hot and participants participate at their own risk. Plasters are available! When you practice, you become a good cook and an open-minded taster! Parents are responsible for their children – the parents can watch but not participate. The child’s own insurance policy applies.
