The main cookery programme is ‘survival cookery’. This will involve preparing simple everyday meals that people can recreate alone or with limited support.

Each recipe is designed with a limited number of ingredients. Photographic shopping lists and recipes are provided if necessary. These recipes will build up into a cookery book that can be taken home to use independently.

Recipes could include

  • Vegetable soup
  • Spaghetti bolognese
  • Chilli con carne
  • Apple crumble

During each recipe, we concentrate on different techniques and discuss any aids and adaptations there are to make cooking as straightforward as possible.

Other cookery classes are linked to our enterprise courses – making products to sell at farmers market, fayres or through a catalogue. These products might include

  • Jams and Chutneys
  • Soups
  • Sweets and chocolates
