COURSE OBJECTIVES

It’s aim is to provide fun practical cooking skills which will enable participants to create a wide range of easy to prepare dishes for themselves, friends and family.

This course is 12 weeks long – up to an hour between 5-6pm on Tuesday’s live on Zoom. The cooking lessons will be recorded in case any are missed.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The Zoom link and full recipe will be sent out before hand so you can have your ingredients ready for class.  Weighing and chopping will be done during the class.

Cameras can be switched on or off so interaction is entirely up to the individual.  Cameras switched on is preferable to encourage attendees to ask questions and communicate with others and enjoy the cook along!
