Getting ready for adult life is an exciting time but rather daunting for a young person. Leaving home with little kitchen and cooking skills abcan be a worry for both parents, carers and young people themselves.

This extended cooking workshop run by Greenwich Pantry’s Cook & Eat team is perfectly put together to help prepare for independent living as well as Uni life so that young people can make the most of their time away from home. 

Our workshop will help participants gain a solid overview of how to manage their time in the kitchen and gain essential skills for healthy living. Participants can kiss goodbye to fish and chips every night of the week and learn how to keep an exciting food pantry instead.

Our expert chefs will show how to plan meals and cook delicious recipes using ingredients that are easily accessible, share tips on cooking within healthy guidelines and 'wow' you with colourful nutrient rich food that they can replicate at home. We discuss label reading and how best to avoid unnatural E numbers that every body can do without.

Learning new things about food is fun and will lead to endless possibilities. With great group discussions this course will help everyone interested to learn kitchen and cooking skills for independent living as a student or young person.

Working with our experienced instructors, participants leave with a sense of accomplishment and more importantly, the confidence to plan, cook, and bake on their own.
