Top Banana Cooking, based in South Buckinghamshire and run by Claire Goodstein, offers fun, educational and healthy cooking experiences to children of all ages. By making food fun, our young cooks will develop an understanding of food, where it comes from and how it helps keep us healthy.


Top Banana sessions are scaleable, flexible and tailored to different settings and facilities. We incorporate school themes into our session plans, cook with food grown in the school or nursery garden or where possible provide the very best local ingredients with which to cook. The recipes are original and healthy and where possible we use seasonal produce.


Claire has a BSc in Nutrition and Food Science and an MSc in Public Health Nutrition.

As mother of two young children, she understands how difficult it can be to provide healthy and diverse meals, while dealing with the challenges of time, budgets and fussy eaters. Claire is passionate about food and is constantly developing new recipes and fun ways of encouraging children to enjoy food.

Claire is CRB checked and holds a Level 2 certificate in Food Hygiene.
