Hi! I'm Dani - a British born corporate event planner, a catalyst for community, Cordon Bleu trained and mom to 3 fabulous boys who are confident and competent in the kitchen. I am passionate about people, creating meaningful connections and cooking great healthy food from the freshest ingredients. Entertaining is my big LOVE! I love how food plays such an important role bringing people together. My background in event management means I LOVE organizing events and I absolutely adore educating and inspiring kids and teens to cook, bake and explore the world through great food. I do encourage great motor planning skills, the use of all their senses, respect for the environment, how to avoid food waste and most importantly becoming independent and confident in the kitchen no matter how picky an eater you are! Positive peer pressure, a mix of ages, team work and a great deal of fun in a non judgmental environment makes for a really positive experience. You'll be surprised how the pickiness disappears once cooking skills and meaningful connections between peers are built.
The Big Tasty Club offers classes and day camps, private in person classes and private camps, Girl Scouts Cooking Badges and a variety of foodie events both for kids, adults and corporate. We run day camps when school is closed and we will organize an event for your specific school or business. We also offer swimming during our summer camps! Everything we do is customizable and we work with you to create a perfect class, camp or event!
Dani's classes are my daughters absolutely favorite after school activity. Dani is passionate about cooking and has a great deal of patience working with kids. Her virtual classes have been so awesome for our whole family during lockdown. We look forward to our weekly dinner cooking together over zoom. We are now eating healthy delicious meals we would never dreamed of cooking before.

Dani Shaw shares her love of cooking with her students. When the pandemic hit, she provided free virtual cooking classes. It was a great way to come together over zoom and make a delicious meal or treat. Recently my daughter has been joining Dani weekly for her virtual dinner classes. My daughter has made stir fry, deconstructed sushi bowls and chicken schnitzel. These meals have never been cooked in our house. Thanks to Dani, my daughter is also whipping up apple crumble and white chocolate cranberry cookies. Without a doubt Dani's cooking classes have been life changing for our family. We LOVE The Big Tasty Club!
