A fun, sociable and practical home cooking course for beginners or less confident cooks who are new to cooking for themselves or who just want new ideas or skills.

With expert guidance, each week you will make and take-home delicious dishes that will build your ability to create your own money saving, tasty and healthier meals at home. Dishes can be altered to your own tastes and will serve one or two as appropriate. Dishes are able to be frozen or reheated the following day.

The dishes we will be making include: bolognaise sauce, cauliflower or broccoli cheese, fruit crumble, stuffed breast of chicken and roasted vegetables.

To help and guide you in the future you will have a copy of all recipes we use together with ideas to adapt them to meet personal taste, dietary requirements and budget.

Some basic ingredients will be provided but you will need to bring in the easily sourced ingredients for each dish. You will also need to bring in containers to take your food home.
