Class Description

Post lockdown we have developed a one day class to give teens and school leavers confidence in the kitchen, getting out of the house, following a structured full day course, really focused on being self sufficient in the kitchen.

The class will have a maximum of 8 participants and will run for a full day.  We have the option to do a longer 3 day class, so do let us know if this is something you would be interested in.

This will benefit those either leaving home to go off to University, want to cook more at home independently or simply want to understand more about how to create tasty food which is easy to prepare and shop for.

Led by one of our most local and most loved chefs, who has a background in inspiring and teaching teenagers and young adults, this will be a fun filled day covering different skills which will give every student the knowledge and confidence to cater for friends and family.

Dishes on the day will cover easy, nutritious mid-week meals; dishes from different cuisines; batch cooking; with vegetarian / meat / fish alternatives.

In addition to the cooking, we’ll cover how to use leftovers to create tasty lunches, how to freeze things and safely defrost and reheat them, alongside how to shop efficiently and reduce food waste to zero.
