Why take Home Cooking Skills?

Learning to cook used to be passed down through the generations, but these days, many of us lack the knowledge or skills to cook from scratch. Instead, we rely on pre-prepared or ready-cooked food, a major cause of the obesity epidemic affecting our nation’s health.

This engaging course aims to change all that. For some, it may be the start of a career in cooking; for others, it will help them to learn the basic skills and recipes that will help them to make healthy choices throughout their lives.


What will I learn?

The course consists of over 80 recipes from Jamie Oliver, covering key topics from eggs and baking to vegetables and quick-cook meats.

You will learn essential knowledge and skills such as:

    kitchen basics: what equipment you need and the best way to stock your store cupboard, fridge and freezer
    food safety and hygiene: knife safety, fridge management and rotation
    how to shop cleverly: shopping lists, seasonal food and planning ahead
    preparing ingredients and understanding confusing food labels.
