Community Work

I specialise in cooking healthy food on a budget from scratch and cook with Love Food Hate Waste principles.  I have created a 5 (or up to 12 week) cooking programme based around common store cupboard ingredients and cheap seasonal vegetables which is suitable for those wishing to learn to cook from a very basic level. (Emphasis can be on food available from Foodbanks to show how it can be used to maximum potential to create interesting meals – these workshops are based on the booklet I created ‘Canny Cooking’ which is distributed at Foodbank in the Leamington Spa and Warwick areas).

I can provide workshops to show how you can reduce your food waste through correct storage, portion control and lots of hints and tips how to make the most out of your food.

Workshops and cooking sessions can be arranged for up to 12 people.

Don’t worry if your venue has limited facilities.  All the equipment required can be supplied. All that is needed is running hot water and electricity!

I have delivered cooking programmes for The Gap in Warwick and Barnado’s in local children centres for the last 6 years. I have very high retention rates and more recently worked with Coventry City Council Foster Care Unit.

I also provide voluntary support at Helping Hands, the Esther Project and Soup Kitchen in Leamington Spa.

I can also provide various cooking events and demonstrations for between 20-40 people to help raise funds for your chosen charity.
