WHO ARE WE?
Danielle Shaw is a british born Cordon Bleu
cook who is passionate about entertaining, events
and everything food and beverage related.
She loves cooking great healthy food from
the freshest ingredients and enjoys educating and inspiring the kids and teens to connect with the community and world around them through food. Dani encourages great motor planning skills, the use of all their senses, caring for the environment and most importantly becoming
independent and confident in the kitchen for their lives ahead.
The Big Tasty Club offers a range of programs for kids - after school classes in addition to childrens birthday parties. Camps during school breaks are also offered throughout the year.
Dani also works as a freelance corporate event planner. Her work has taken her around the world countless times working on events from 10 to 4,000. She focuses on event logistics, menu planning, decor and out of the box entertainment.
My 2nd grader absolutely loved taking Dani's cooking/baking class. In fact, she told me that it is her absolute favorite after school activity! Dani is super organized, creative and so kind and encouraging to the kids. Everyone leaves each class with a big smile and yummy food to bring home! Cannot recommend more highly!!
I was present at my daughter's girl scout cooking class with Dani. I loved that the girls really did every step of the cooking and used fresh, healthy ingredients which some of the girls may not regularly eat (yay for positive peer pressure to try foods!). Dani was fun, calm and collected the whole time (which was a feat with 20 or so girls with knives ;-) ).
The Big Tasty Club is organized and held in Danielle’s private kosher kitchen in Haverford. Classes may include fish, poultry and red meat. Vegetarians completely catered for. Organic and non organic food will be used. Gluten free foods can be used wherever possible if necessary. Foods that are genetically modified or contain artificial colors or preservatives will NOT be used (unless you want a very colorful birthday cake!!). The Big Tasty Club is fully insured with full clearances.
CHILDRENS BIRTHDAY PARTIES
Fun, unique, personalized and fully catered cooking/birthday parties with food related scavenger hunts for children 5 years and up. Birthday parties will include all food and beverages and the Birthday Cake and can include party favors and unique invitations.

AFTER SCHOOL COOKING AND BAKING PROGRAMS
Our cooking and baking programs will be run in series of 4 week slots. Each series will have a theme and each week the children will be able to take home what they made to share with the family for dinner. Our autumn program will be inspired by classic dishes but made with a twist, healthy of course!
