Kent, United Kingdom, 5th April 2018: Kent-based Beverley Jarvis ran a special ‘Cook-In’ workshop from her beautiful countryside home in Ashford, Kent, yesterday (4th April 2018) with six teenagers determined to learn how to cook more confidently and independently. On the menu: fruit smoothies, chicken fajitas and tomato, avocado and mango salsa. Aged between 12 and 17, the teens soon settled in to Beverley’s demonstration and then confidently set to work recreating the recipes before enjoying their supper together.

The next Teens in the Kitchen ‘Cook-In’ will be held at Beverley’s home on May 11th from 6pm. Journalists are warmly invited to attend with a photographer to enjoy the demonstration, chat to the teenagers while they’re cooking and then, of course, try some of the delicious food they create. Please contact us if you’d like to come along. On the menu next time: home-made pizzas from scratch, salad, and carrot cupcakes. Spaces are limited, teens are also welcome to apply to be part of the ‘Cook-In’. Please contact

Beverley Jarvis is the original domestic goddess, having written more than twenty-three cookbooks over the past forty-five years for leading publishers such as Headline, Octopus, Penguin and BBC Books, including the UK’s first microwave cookery book. Her next book will be Teens in the Kitchen, and the live Cook-In events are a wonderful opportunity to road-test the hundreds of recipes Beverley has created specifically with teens in mind.
