COOKING 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 cookery course is 12 weeks long – around an hour between 5-6pm on Tuesday’s live on Zoom.
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, 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 is preferable to encourage attendees to ask questions and communicate with others and enjoy the cook along! It also helps Anne Marie slow down to stop and wait for people before carrying out the next step.
The cooking lesson is recorded but only Anne Marie can be seen. Although voices will be heard from other participants. If you miss a session a recording can be sent to you.

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.
