Cooking Club

We have started a Cooking Club in which we work with a small group of young people each term on a Monday afternoon.

Through cooking a series of dishes from around the world the young people are learning about new foods, developing a range of food preparation skills and gaining knowledge about the nutritional content of different foods and what makes a balanced diet. It has been great to see the current group of 5 boys, gain new skills and knowledge whilst having a great time and a good dinner. One of the boys even said he might be interested in becoming a chef!

They are going to be cooking a meal for all the volunteers in the next couple of weeks to finish off their sessions at which they will be presented with a food preparation qualification.
