“They loved getting all their ingredients and utensils out ready to use and then checking them against the card to make sure they had everything. They also loved cracking the eggs. Kids just love cracking eggs!! Honestly, they really had a fun time doing it and as I am not a natural baker, it helped me also. Plus… it tasted delicious”

Great lunchtime alternative!
‘Edward absolutely loved making the Rainbow Omelette Muffins today, the recipe was easy to follow with simple instructions. He couldn’t wait for them to cool down to have a taste. Great lunchtime alternative and perfect healthy after school snack for his big sister.
Silicone moulds would definitely have helped (we don’t have any) as they stuck slightly to the paper cases that we had in the cupboard’.

I did it all on my own!
‘I really enjoyed making the bread, it was quick and fun and I hardly made any mess…. Mummy was happy about that!’

Dinner party made mostly by our 6 year old!
We received the box so quickly after ordering. My daughter was so excited and the fact it was personalised to her was her favourite! We made the cake and the bread in a bag (so easy and not as messy as it normally is!) she learnt how to be more careful around the hob and how to chop vegetables (for the vegetable soup) safely. She was so proud of herself and wrote out a menu for her daddy. She copied the card to lay the table in a proper way and we had a beautiful dinner party made mostly by our 6 year old!! Thank you.

Little magic packages perfect for a rainy day!
We had been introduced to Sid & Nancy cooking academy by a friend and the idea is wonderful, it came pretty speedily and for a small package that can fit through your letterbox, it contains a lot! Our favourite bits are the scavenger hunt, searching for the ingredients at home and in the supermarket and the wipe-clean recipe cards, they can be used over and over again and each child can fill it out and then it can be wiped away for the next time! Fab! So much thought has gone into it and we loved the badge, perfect little touch! I have twin girls aged 4 and they fully got involved as much as my inner control freak would let them.

Such great kid-friendly instructions!
We got so busy we forget the ‘in progress’ shots and almost forgot to take one of the finished dish! Safe to say we enjoy making our Sid and Nancy cooking academy meals so much we forget about everything else!! Such a lovely activity to do together and such great kid-friendly instructions, beautifully illustrated and really simple. Middle child especially loves the scavenger hunt for ingredients
I’m also looking forward to using the chatter cards at teatime to help direct the conversation away from the usual stuff!⠀
They all loved the food even my fussy four-year-old!
My 9-year-old was so excited to get started with the box. Perfect for lockdown or rainy days for all the family to enjoy whatever the ages, my son Franklin who is 2 enjoys getting involved. We’ve never made bread before & was worried it wouldn’t turn out ok but it was perfect. They all loved the food even my fussy four-year-old!

Awesome cookery box!
These two had the best time preparing and making our lunch today! They loved every second and are super proud of themselves. We are too!
It was seriously yummy!

An edible education!
This is amazing! What better way to get your kids interested in cooking and trying new foods? Having fun in the kitchen is an important education, and they are learning skills for life. Me and my 5-year-old made dhal. The recipes are easy-to-follow but are more exciting (and helpful for the parent) than the usual baking projects. They are proper family meals. Can’t recommend this subscription enough.

The Sid & Nancy box is a pure delight!
The Sid & Nancy box is a pure delight. We look forward to opening it each month & discovering new recipes to cook as a family. My children (aged 7, 15 & 17) enjoy this as an activity they can do together, and sometimes they even let us grown-ups get involved too! We like the fact that you can create 3 proper dishes to make one meal, but sometimes we spread the recipes out throughout the week. We make them over & over again, and some are already firm favourites! The box is fun, entertaining and educational all at once. It’s good value and great for all the family.
Our nephews love being in the kitchen and baking treats so thought this would be a great Christmas gift for them. They’ve loved the recipes and Mum appreciates the email reminders of when boxes are on their way. It’s a great way to keep kids busy and happy in the house!
From start to finish this is such a lovely product
The face on my little girl, when she received her box, was priceless. We started with the scavenger hunt which felt like we were in a game of supermarket sweep ( so much fun) Me and my little one have made edible sparklers and the toffee apple dessert both of which are so tasty and easy to follow. I highly recommend this product its family fun delivered to your door.

Sid & Nancy are great!
Sid and Nancy provide wonderful child-friendly cooking guides. You get an email prior to delivery so you can prep and the children can find the ingredients they need in the fridge and cupboards. The meals and cakes are child friendly but also suitable for family meals so you can all cook and eat together. They are a great activity.
