Children aged 11+ to adult.

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.

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 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.

How to reduce food waste through correct storage of ingredients.

Knife skills, baking techniques, measuring, use of hob and oven.
