The young chefs dabbled in the art of cooking at the One Leisure sports centre in Huntingdon as a part of their summer activity programme.

One Leisure marketing manager Radford Hudson said: “There were 30 children that turned up to make a variety of different items using fresh ingredients.”

Staff at the sports centre showed kids how to cook an array of food from scratch including a healthy cheesecake that many of the children thoroughly enjoyed eating.

“We do these sorts of activities every year as it helps children understand about different ingredients,” add Mr Hudson
