Course description

Cookery - Good Home Cooking - The Basics (HPT)

Cookery - Good Home Cooking - The Basics (HPT) [ADF4276G]: Overview

This course will teach you about tasty home cooking, covering sweet and savoury recipes to appeal to adults and children alike. The course is planned to help you work within a limited budget for ingredients, to keep your cookery costs low.

This course is primarily funded by the Henrietta Parker Trust and as such learners will only need to pay a minimal fee of £5. For more information on the Trust, please see the dedicated page on our website.

What will we cover?

The aim of the course is to learn to prepare a range of tasty, nutritious meals that you can reproduce at home at a reasonable cost. You will be able to identify the skills needed for different recipes and gain confidence in preparing dishes using the skills learnt.

Who is this course for? Is there anything I need to know before joining?

No skills or prior knowledge are required before starting the course. The course is suitable for the complete beginner or for those who wish to broaden their skills in the kitchen. Less experienced or less confident cooks may be encouraged to limit the number of dishes they prepare.

This course is suitable for vegetarians. Although some of the planned recipes may include meat, the tutor will always be able to suggest alternative ingredients.

As our courses are taught in English, please contact us if you have any concerns about your level of English.

What do I need to bring to the first class? Will there be any extra costs?

The course fee includes the cost of ingredients.

You will need to bring suitable containers to take food home in. Note, this may be hot food, or liquid-based, eg stews and soups, so the containers should be heat-proof and air-tight.
Please also bring an apron, and tea-towels.
Bring a pen, and your reading glasses (if you use them), so that you can read and make notes about the recipes.

It is important to wear clothes and footwear suitable for a busy, hot kitchen.

What can I do when I finish the course?

Following this course you could progress on to other cookery courses offered at the Centre, all enjoyable, informative and creative. We have a range of cookery and baking courses, so take a look at the brochure or online to see what else is available.
