This course aims to provide a unique opportunity to learn vital cooking skills in a friendly relaxed environment. We will use seasonal fresh ingredients (some from Anne Marie’s allotment!) with common store cupboard ingredients.
BASIC 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 course is 12 weeks long – up to 90 minutes 11-12.30pm on Tuesday’s at Warwick Gates Community Centre.
This will include time to sit down together and eat what has been made, 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 in the lesson and then you have the option of eating and chatting while having a cuppa…then take any leftovers home.

As the weeks go by if there is a general consensus to make a specific dish I am happy to go with the flow! Recipes will generally be kept plant based or can be adapted within the lesson.
Lessons are very relaxed and ideal for those with low confidence and looking to have a bit of fun while learning some easy to follow recipes.
