Workshop Update

The workshop was such fun yesterday with all the eager little cheflings ready to cook up a storm. Since we couldn’t use any stove tops or chopping boards the trick was to simply follow instructions and mix, crush, swirl, paint, lick, dribble and gobble. And what a fantastic job those little ones did!

The workshop as mentioned in my last post was hosted by the wonderful BabyChakra at Hamleys store in Lower Parel, Mumbai.

Here’s the line up of what was on the menu:

Walking Tex-Mex

Pipe Down

Paint your Art out

Red Velvet Crumble


Walking Tex-Mex


This one involves a lot of mixing, crushing and shaking around.


  • 1 Small bag of chips
  • 1 Helping of salsa {chopped tomato, chopped coriander, a dash of lime juice, pinch of sugar and salt}
  • 1 Helping of capsicum
  • 1 Helping of cheese
  • 1 Sachet of tex-mex mix {garlic powder, oregano flakes, salt & pepper}


  • Cut open the bag of chips from the top
  • Scrunch the top and give the pack a little squeeze to crush the chips inside
  • Add the capsicum and the salsa
  • Add the tex-mex mix Shake shake shake the bag of chips Garnish with cheese and dig in!


Pipe Down


This activity was all about piping art onto the crackers.




  • 1 Helping of home-made naachni chips
  • 1 cone of dip for piping {dip –  hung curd, cheese spread, salt, pepper & mustard powder}
  • 1 Sachet of chopped dill as garnish
  • 1 Sachet of mustard garnish {powdered mustard, salt & pepper}


  • Snip off the end of the piping bag just a little
  • Pipe out the designs onto the crackers till you fill the surface out
  • Garnish the top


Eat your Art Out!


I think the kids especially enjoyed this one the most! It was all about unleashing their inner Picasso.


  • 2 slices of bread
  • 3 colours {coloured syrups mixed with milk}
  • 1 paint brush


Go all out and use the bread as the canvas for your art. Don’t forget to toast it before eating it!


Red Velvet Crumble


The finale to our little workshop ended with this fine number & a tribute to my late grandma. Needless to say it was my favourite of the lot!


  • 1 helping of cookies
  • 1 helping of slice cake
  • 3 tbsp of condensed milk
  • 1 sachet of beetroot powder
  • 1 sachet of white chocolate chips


Right at the get go mix in the beetroot powder to the condensed milk and allow it to sit so that the powder can render a gorgeous colour to the mix

For the base layer, crush fine the cookies. Add roughly crushed chunky bits of cake to the top of the cookie layer

Drizzle the red velvet sauce over the top of the cake layer and finish it off with the white chocolate chips

Dig in and share!
