12 week basic cooking course on zoom
9th January 2024 @ 5:00 pm - 16th April 2024 @ 6:00 pm
THIS 12 WEEK BASIC COOKING COURSE ON ZOOM IS AIMED AT:
- Families, children aged 11+ to adult.
- Children participating in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.
- Young adults leaving home.
- Younger children can join in with help from an adult.
Hob, oven and knife work will be undertaken so a grown-up in the room is required at all times.
Its 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 – around an hour between 5 – 6 p.m. on Tuesdays live on Zoom.
Due to the short length of the Spring term, the course runs into the Summer term. If you prefer to only to cook-along for 10 weeks, get in touch and a manual invoice via email can be provided.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Zoom link and full recipe will be sent out beforehand so you can have your ingredients ready for class. Weighing and chopping will be done during the class, as this is part of the learning. (you may chop and weigh ingredients beforehand if you prefer to watch more and take notes).
Cameras can be switched on or off so interaction is entirely up to the individual. Cameras switched on are preferable to encourage attendees to ask questions communicate with others and enjoy the cook-along! It also helps Anne Marie slow to stop and wait for people before carrying out the next step.
The Zoom is not recorded.

I can’t believe how much I have learned while watching my child learn to cook over the last 5 weeks! Mealtimes have become a family affair and we look forward to cooking. You make it so simple but the results are so tasty. I’m so pleased to have discovered this course!
Superb, Anne-Marie’s passion for cooking is infectious, every session was fun and informative. The cost of the course is excellent value for money and I’ve been recommending Anne Marie to all my friends and family.
