About us

Top Banana Cooking, run by Claire Goodstein, first started cooking sessions in 2013 and has gone from strength to strength, now offering numerous nursery and primary school sessions and cooking parties in South Buckinghamshire and West London.

Claire has a BSc in Nutrition and Food Science and an MSc in Public Health Nutrition. As a 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 DBS checked and holds a Level 2 certificate in Food Hygiene.

Claire did the best bake off party for my 10 year old – such a fabulous idea for a party and Claire was so brilliant at getting the kids to do everything themselves. Hugely recommended! Thank you!”

“One of my favourite school memories is when I made some pizza spirals at Top Banana Cooking club. I really enjoyed making them and it was really good fun. I think Mrs Goodstein is really fun and nice. And I will miss Top Banana.”
