What some parents said about our 'Cooking on A Budget/Slow Cooking Course'

We asked them - What did you enjoy most about the course?

  • Loved meeting people and enjoyed cooking different things
  • I enjoyed all the course but most of all I enjoyed cooking different recipes and learning different methods of cooking
  • All of the course.  Staff were brilliant and also trying new foods
  • Being able to try foods I wouldn’t usually try or eat.  Working in a small group helped with my anxiety
  • I gained a lot of new recipes and different ways to cook things I already made

 

What would you tell other parents about the course?

  • I’d encourage other parents to join the course to learn and understand healthy cooking on a budget
  • I would tell other parents this is a brilliant course to do.
  • Learning how to cook really nice healthy meals on a budget for the family
  • Try it even if you don’t think you’ll gain anything new.
  • It’s surprised me just how much I’ve actually learnt.  I have so many new recipes and techniques
  • It’s friendly and relaxed and it’s given me the chance to try different food.  My son enjoyed the mince and dumplings
