Safety Requirements: Learners will be using the oven and kitchen equipment. Please monitor them for their safety and have protective equipment such as mitts and aprons available. They may also need assistance using a knife. A safety checklist is included in the master checklist.

Allergy Notes: We make most ingredients that are frequently prone to allergies, such as nuts optional. This allows the parent and child to choose what they would like to add and is not a requirement. The recipes may use dairy products, eggs, and flour. Should you need to alter the recipe, message me privately through Outschool to discuss alternatives.
