April school holiday cooking classes
Kids get to have fun and cook their own lunch at three classes at the Auckland Seafood School in Freemans Bay. Held on Wednesday April 18, Thursday 19 and Monday 23, 10am-1pm. Wednesday’s menu is popcorn shrimp cones with citrus mayo plus sesame chicken kebabs with herbed rice. Sounds yum to us. $45 per child. For more, aucklandseafoodschool.co.nz
