Cooking – for life (repeating in Autumn)


For all enquiries please E-mail Marion or ring 07821 627038 if you’d like to participate.

These workshops will grow your confidence in using basic cookery skills/methods/techniques, common to many meals. Having practical ‘knowhow’ at your fingertips has a big impact on health and society whilst also reducing food waste and helping food budgets ‘s t r e t c h‘. These tailor-made sessions aim widely across the population and touch upon our nutritional needs over the course of a person’s lifetime.  

Whether you are caring for an elderly parent; a pregnant or breast-feeding woman; trying to wean, or entice a fussy toddler (or teen) to try different food; a young person preparing for university digs, or thinking about your body image/shape/size; a family who is trying to get the very most from family meal-times; or, perhaps, like many of us as we age, you’ve started to care less about nutrition. Whatever your circumstances and cooking ability there will be something of value in these down to earth sessions to help you and everyone else who eats what you prepare.

WATCH THIS SPACE. *Before we could advertise them, the sessions (March-June 2022) were booked out, but we aim to hold the course again during the year, and we’re also looking at providing a few holiday sessions for kids/young people, too.

Please, don’t hesitate to speak to us about what you would find useful from these cooking for life workshops. We would also like to hear from local people who can support these workshops, or/and shape the future of local food services and food provision/distribution. Please contact Marion or Elaine to discuss how you can be part of changing practices today for a shared-future. Thank you.

Covid Updates: We will always do our best to keep people safe, and to enhance the learning/teaching experience, we are offering limited places.

Chef, Elaine Blanchard has been facilitating these vital ‘back to basics’ classes

The first 5 sessions (11 Dec 21 – 11 June 2022) were made possible by the European Union funded Rural Development Programme and Welsh Government. The grant was administered by the local authority, and the Trust reports back on agreed project outcomes in July 2022.
