Being a busy working mum, I love the idea of having a subscription recipe kit which is tailored for children. It’s a good idea for them to take interest in the kitchen at a very young age while I’m there to help them which will also create a special memory of bonding. My kids are a bit fussy when it comes to foods hence Galleoneers recipe kit is the perfect way to enjoy cooking and spend family time. I’m hoping that cooking with them will help them to have a positive relationship with food so that they can make a healthier choice.
Galleoneers is a subscription of recipe kits for kids aged between 3 to 12 years old. Their recipe kits teach your kids to appreciate diverse cuisines around the world. What I love about Galleoneers is that it comes with 3 recipes which include starters or snacks, mains and desserts which will help my kids to learn varieties of cooking and food preparation. Galleoneers also offer alternative recipes ( through their cooking club ) so you can have more option and also good for people with specific diet.
Japanese themed recipe kit
We were sent a ” Japanese Theme ” recipe kit which pack in a small box with a beautiful themed design. My boys were excited to open the box. Inside is a beautifully wrapped recipe kit. It is well packaged so would make a great gift. The recipes to make were sushi, chicken yakisoba and red beans ice lolly. The recipe kit also comes with seaweed sheets, sushi rolling Mat, wooden spatula and origami sheets for arts & craft activity.
Grocery shopping for the ingredients
When my recipe kit shipped, the list of ingredients were emailed to me to buy and a grocery shopping list is also included in the kit. Alternative ingredients can also be found in the book which is very helpful and flexible. I took my youngest child with me in buying the ingredients which is fun. He help me find the stuff needed and I let him hold the grocery list. It is also a good way for him to get to know the name of the ingredients such as those avocado, spring onion and asparagus.
It’s our first time to make sushi and my boys ( 6 and 3 years old ) really enjoyed making it. The instruction were easy to understand and follow. My boys had fun as if they were playing. Our sushi doesn’t look perfect but what matters is that my boys loved it.
My daughter did the cooking of the chicken yakisoba since she loves noodles. She enjoyed doing it all herself without any help from me. She easily followed the instruction since she is 14 years old which is above of the age recommended for the recipe kit which is 3-12 years old. She likes learning to cook from recipes which is wonderful. She find the recipe interesting and fun to cook.
Red beans ice lolly
My 3 years old son took interest in making the ice lolly. He was cute and charming as he patiently waited for my instruction as I help him to make the ice lolly. He looked at the picture in the booklet and said are you ready mommy? Oh bless him…He was really keen in helping making foods in the kitchen and he found it so exciting and fun doing all the mixing. He even put them in the freezer by himself.
What do we think about the Galleoneers subscription recipe kit?
I thought it’s a brilliant idea. I would never thought I would have fun cooking with my children. Having a recipe kit which is simple and easy to follow is wonderful for children to get them involved in the kitchen. It is also good for a quality bonding time as a family. The price seems to be a good value of money considering it comes with a 3 recipe compare to other subscription recipe kit that only comes in one, however it would be nice if the more unusual ingredients were included, as I struggled to find some of them. It also included a free exclusive membership to their cooking club.
