12 Wk Basic Social Cooking Lessons in Warwick


These lessons are aimed at people of all ages and varying degrees of ability, from beginners to those stuck in a rut about what to cook or who want to reduce their reliance on ready meals and processed foods.

Are you looking to improve your cooking skills?

Need inspiration to cook healthy dinners for yourself or your family?

Are you looking for a fun activity and meeting new people in Leamington Spa / Warwick?

Do you want to learn some easy to create simple, tasty recipes?

This course provides a unique opportunity to learn vital cooking skills in a friendly, relaxed environment. We will use fresh seasonal ingredients (some from Anne Marie’s allotment!) and common store cupboard ingredients.



It aims to provide fun, practical cooking skills, enabling participants to create a wide range of easy-to-prepare dishes for themselves, friends and family.

This course is 12 weeks long – up to 90 minutes 11-12.30 pm on Tuesdays at Heathcote Community Centre. It will include time to sit down together and eat what has been; there will also be enough to take home to eat later, share or freeze.


Working in pairs (sometimes alone), you will make a dish to serve four people. It will be cooked during the lesson, and you can eat and chat while having a cuppa. Then, you can take any leftovers home.



  • Lots of helpful hints and tips.
  • How to prepare and cook staple ingredients.
  • Easy ways to repurpose ingredients and leftovers to create new dishes.
  • How to reduce food waste through correct storage of ingredients.
  • Knife skills, baking techniques, measuring, use of hob and oven.
  • Understand flavours and the use of herbs and spices.



Enjoy cooking with others for a fun social activity.

Ultimately, it instils a love of cooking and gives confidence in the kitchen so that simple dishes can be recreated at home.

Practical kitchen skills to make healthier food.

Enable experimentation with flavours and ingredients to create dishes without referring to recipes.

COST: £120.00 for 12 weeks (includes all ingredients, recipes and use of aprons)

If spaces are remaining, you may be able to join ad-hoc lessons through the course for £10.00 per session.
