HOT: Kids Can Cook – Wizards and Witches, Sheraton Melbourne

These summer school holidays during the weekdays Sheraton Melbourne is again offering Kids Can Cook, a children’s afternoon tea and hands-on themed food decorating workshop for little ones.

To celebrate the premiere of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to Melbourne’s Princess Theatre, this season’s theme is ‘Wizards and Witches‘ (though note the afternoon tea is not officially affiliated with the play)! Get in the mood by dressing up –  we decide to bring Dobby and Hermione with us.

The afternoon tea is actually held over lunchtime 12-2pm, with the food decorating workshop starting at 12:30pm.

Enter from the main Little Collins Street entrance then head upstairs to Little Collins Kitchen.

We are invited to try out the Kids Can Cook high tea and have a great time eating and decorating magical-themed sweets with the Sheraton’s pastry chef.

The event starts with a Parisian afternoon tea for adults and a special menu for children.

The Parisian afternoon tea menu for adults features two freshly baked scones, four savoury items and three delicate sweet treats, all served on a traditional three-tiered stand. It comes with a glass of sparkling wine (or sparkling water in my case) and unlimited tea and coffee for $65 (note that the standard price for just the Parisian afternoon tea is $49 Monday to Friday and $59 Saturday and Sunday).

One child aged 5-12 years dines free for each adult paying $65, while each additional child is $25.

The kids’ menu features a choice of cheese, ham and cheese and Vegemite crustless sandwiches, a HUGE bowl of fries and carrot, celery and cucumber sticks with yoghurt dip. Plus a chocolate milkshake!
