Cooking workshop for children at the family center

The family center in the MehrGenerationenHaus MIKADO at Franz-Mehring-Straße 20 will be running a six-week "Educational Cooking" course for children aged six to ten from April 2024. The aim is not to achieve the perfect cooking result, but to allow children to get to know lots of different foods and taste sensations and to help decide what they want to try and process.
