The Purple Kitchen

Getting Kids Cooking


Here we keep you up to date about  the latest thoughts on food and what the Purple kitchen is  up to.

Sally and Kate’s 4th cook book was published in the summer of 2016 – 'The World in My Kitchen’

This is a book that transports kids thousands of miles away with the fresh, healthy dishes of different lands. With charming maps, interesting facts, health benefits of various foods and glorious photos that put the dishes in their home contexts, the book includes staple foods and popular dishes from a range of countries from Brazil to Vietnam. Each recipe has step by step instructions that kids can follow easily, and simple serving suggestions to make the meal look fantastic. Click here to see the book.


You can purchase our new book direct - The World in My Kitchen is £12.99, and can be dedicated and signed by us both, making it a personalised gift to a child which will fuel their enthusiasm.(We candeliver books in Beaconsfield free of charge.  Other areas we will post the book for an additional cost of £3.)

Kate and Sally's teachers book - see here

get cooking in the classroom

From September 2014 ALL primary school children in England must learn to cook in the curriculum and be taught about nutrition and healthy eating.

Sally and Kate's book, Get Cooking in the Classroom has been designed to support KS1 and KS2 teachers as they work to comply with The School Food Plan.

With relative ease, teachers will be able to undertake a variety of healthy and fun food activities. Many of the recipes do not even require access to an oven!
