Sit Back, Relax & Let Us Bring the Magic

Planning and organising a birthday party or any other event for children can be a daunting task – chasing kids all over the place, trying to get them to participate in activities, doing on-the-spot parenting sessions… And after all that – cleanup.

We can help! Although we do ask for at least one parent to be present, the kids will be so captivated by the show that you can safely relax and enjoy a glass of your favourite wine. Our shows bring the best of both worlds – happy kids and relaxed parents!

Our Happy Customers

“In May 2020 Peter came and did a cooking class with my family and I as part of a birthday gift for my children.  The menu was sushi followed by caramelised apples.

Peter had prepared all the ingredients prior to coming and so when he arrived we set to the task at hand.  My children, who were aged from 6 to 14 at the time, all had a great time learning how to make sushi rolls which looked and tasted great.

Peter is a very experienced chef and at all times, was very calm, polite and engaged well with us all, and especially the children.  He demonstrated the process and then had the children make their own sushi rolls.  The apples were fun to make also and were a sweet treat to top the event off.

I highly recommend doing this for parties but also as a way to learn how to make good sushi.  It was something that the adults and children could experience and enjoy together not to mention providing fresh and good quality party food at the same time.”

“I’d like to refer Peter’s Cooking with Magic for kids. For 2 hours my family had fun watching and taking part in making wafer cones with ham and cheese charred by blue torch and chocolate fondue with fruits and biscuit.

Kids were very excited trying themselves in roles of little chefs and guess what: parents didn’t have to clean up after all this fun finished.

Peter not only taught our kids new fun skills, but also brought everything needed for that to happen, all the ingredients and did the clean up afterwards, so we as parents had stress free time.

Feeling very grateful and satisfied.”
