Zoom Basic Cooking Course (12 weeks)


Children aged 11+ to adult.

Children participating in the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme.

Older children leaving home for independent living and university.

Families with younger children can join in with help from an adult. However, a grown-up in the room is always required since hob, oven, and knife work will be undertaken.

Young adults, to help them budget cook and reduce reliance on ultra-processed foods.



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

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 beforehand so you can have your ingredients ready for class.  Weighing and chopping will be done during the class.

Cameras can be switched on or off, so interaction is entirely up to the individual. Having cameras switched on is preferable to encourage attendees to ask questions and communicate with others.


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.


Ultimately, it instils a love of cooking and gives confidence in the kitchen so simple dishes can be recreated. It also enables experimentation with flavours and ingredients to create dishes without referring to recipes.

Quote from parents/adults taking part in the cooking course on Zoom:


Our 14-year-old started cooking with Anne Marie for his DofE Bronze and hasn’t stopped!  He loves it; we love the food he cooks, and he’s super proud of himself for cooking a delicious meal every week.  Fabulous recipes, great tuition and a fun, educational class.  Thank you!  Sarah Gray, Leamington Spa


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.


Really great course, my son loved doing this as part of his Duke of  Edinburgh, and made some fantastic food!


Anne Marie hosts fantastic cooking lessons, teaching important life skills and coming up with some delicious creations. My daughter has really enjoyed her cookery course – highly recommended!
