The Big Tasty Club | 2021 LOVE Award Family Favorite: Best Virtual Cooking Class

Big Tasty Club

The Big Tasty Club was founded in 2017 by Dani Shaw, a British corporate event planner and Cordon Bleu cook. Passionate about cooking great healthy food and inspiring others to do so too, Dani created the culinary school for kids and teens from her own kitchen. Starting with a few well planned and executed day camps, this progressed to classes, birthday parties, community events, girl scout cooking sessions, private family events, corporate team building. Word has gotten around the Main Line that this is THE place to go to learn to cook and bake.

"I have always loved and appreciated how food plays such an important role in bringing people together. Having been in the corporate events and hospitality world for over 15 years I found a passion for inspiring kids and teens to enjoy being in the kitchen and to appreciate great food. In a world of excessive take out packaging, I emphasize a respect for the environment, how to avoid food waste and most importantly becoming independent and confident in the kitchen to make delicious food from scratch. Positive peer pressure, experimentation, team work and a great deal of fun in a non judgmental environment makes for a truly phenomenal experience. Independence breeds confidence and I encourage self reliance whilst stressing safety. It's wonderful to watch picky eaters suddenly want to start tasting everything they make!" says Dani.

The Big Tasty Club successfully adapted to the pandemic by offering free virtual family classes daily in March and April 2020.  Today there are different classes and events taking place on a virtual and safe in person basis – from after school Dinner Clubs, Classes, Day Camps, Summer Camps, Birthday Parties, Girl Scout Events, Corporate Team Building to all manner of custom food related private events. The Big Tasty Club also offer homemade beauty products such as face/body scrubs and hair conditioners from every day kitchen ingredients. Think Food Think Fun.

2021 Main Line Parent Community Family Favorite: Best Virtual Cooking Class

Family Focus Media has been building community with Main Line Parent and Philadelphia Family since 2010 and our annual LOVE Awards celebrate the BEST local resources for families, thanks to thousands of nominations like this one:

"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. Those meals have never been cooked in our house. Thanks to Dani, my daughter is also whipping up apple crumble and white chocolate chip cranberry cookies. Without a doubt, Dani's cooking classes have been life changing for our family. We LOVE The Big Tasty Club." N.N
