This course is ideal for anyone with an interest in cooking, becoming more independent and moving on to the next stage of their life, entertaining, nutrition and household budgeting.
NOTE: During the Coronavirus COVID-19 event, there are shortages of some common food items that are used within the Essential Cooking courses, such as pasta and strong bread flour. This is the perfect time to be learning essential cookery skills, when we are having to be more resourceful with the food we have. We request that all participants do not use any extra items from the family food supply and instead, still watch the instructional videos and take the knowledge check but then help with the preparation of the normal family meal as an alternative to cooking the suggested dish.
