Cooking classes to really relish

Aden Moriarty surely must be Noosa Springs' secret weapon.

Not only does he head the kitchen at the golf resort's Relish restaurant, he comes up with many innovative ideas - such as his excellent-value special lunch menu which runs for a couple of months each time to ensure everyone, not just club members, can access good food in a world-class environment.

Now he has done that daring thing so many chefs would shy away from - worked with kids.

"I was approached by Heather a local swim coach who asked if I would like to hold a cooking class for some of her swim team," Aden said.

"I thought it was a great idea so we came up with a recipe for a power bar."

A healthy snack of kids?

That they can make themselves?

Sounds good to us.

"The concept behind it is that it is something that can be made up early in the week maybe Sunday night and then portioned up so the kids can have a healthy ready-to-go after school snack, something that is not processed and is also tasty to eat."

While the kids were in the kitchen working with Aden to make their power bar he took the chance to talk to them about healthy eating and the benefits of eating fresh fruit and vegetables.

"This is just one of the fun things Heather has organised for her swim class as she regularly takes the kids on fun outings."
