HOW DOES YOUR GARDEN GROW?
If your children are developing little green thumbs or an interest
in where their food comes from, get them along to one of Perth’s
community gardens or pick-your-own orchards. While the winter
season offers a limited selection of orchards, there are lots of
great gardens to visit with budding horticulturalists. Environment
House in Bayswater runs excellent Little Gardeners classes (from
September onwards with both casual and ongoing programs)
where kids can learn, play and eat. For other ideas check out
the Perth City Farm in East Perth (a working production farm
with some farm tours open to school-aged kids) or Earthwise
Community Western Australia, which runs kids tours in Subiaco
on Fridays (on demand).
Have your kids been bitten by the foodie bug? These
days, there are a gazillion ways to keep them happy –
from kid-friendly restaurants to more hands-on cooking
classes and healthy-eating garden workshops. It’s time
to roll up their little sleeves! words Kate Roff
Curtis Stone’s Spiced
Celebrity chef Curtis Stone
recommends this recipe for
kids – it’s ideal served on fluffy
3⁄4 cup packed brown sugar
1⁄4 cup water
2 medium Jazz apples, peeled, cored, and each cut into 12 wedges
1⁄2 tsp ground cinnamon
Small pinch ground nutmeg
Pinch of salt
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
40g unsalted butter
In a medium heavy frying pan, stir the brown sugar and 1⁄4 cup water over high heat until
the sugar has dissolved. Simmer until the syrup has reduced by about one-quarter, or for
about two minutes. Add the apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt, tossing to coat them in
the caramel. Cook until the apples have softened, but are not mushy, and have a sheen
from the caramel, for about eight minutes. Stir in the lemon juice and butter. Spoon the
apple mixture over pancakes and serve immediately.
Headed by local chef Sophie Budd, the
Little Budds classes use storytelling to
inspire young chefs, while the Budding
Chefs courses for older children and teens
revolve around exotic-location themes.
Next class Little Buds: Three Little Pigs
(ages 4-8), Aug 23; Budding Chefs:

Frasers, Jul 22.
WHAT’S 2 EAT?
Focusing on healthy eating, the term-time
kindy classes are for ages 3-5, while the

eating choices, and kids can select
ingredients from the on-site vegie patch.
