The University Basics course is perfect for those who want to learn how to make great tasting home-cooked food from healthy ingredients. Working in Flora’s stunning kitchen, classes are kept to a maximum of six (great for a group of mates), so you cannot fail to learn and soon you will have the confidence to roll out some sensational stalwarts.
Better still, you will learn to cook good wholesome food while being mindful of a student budget, making this course ideal for those going to university or preparing to live away from home. For instance, you may cook a succulent roast chicken with perfect crispy skin. And from the remnants of this humble chicken, shall come chicken pie with billowing puff pastry, or Asian salad, chicken noodle soup, barbeque wraps, or Thai chicken curry, risotto…… the possibilities for leftovers are endless and invaluable.
Once the cooking is over, there is plenty of time to chat. During your stay nutitrionist Elodie Stanley will give a talk as an introduction to food and what our bodies need, choices we can make and the benefits of a balanced and varied diet. We will also cover all manner of topics during the week: budget, shopping, health, hygiene, bacteria, bugs, food poisoning and sell-by dates. Also menu planning, seasonal ingredients and sugar alternatives.
This course is a perfect cookery course for Duke of Edinburgh Gold’s residential. No experience is necessary.
