Course overview

On this course you will have an opportunity to prepare and cook a variety of recipes in an informal and friendly environment with an experience tutor.

By the end of the course you will have developed some new cooking skills and had an opportunity to prepare a range of nutritious meals. If you have particular dietary needs or preferences, these can be discussed with the tutor at the information session.  The content of the course may vary according to seasonal produce.

You will also gain an understanding of the basic principles of food hygiene and have an opportunity to work towards a Level 2 qualification in Food Safety. The food safety knowledge can be used in everyday life and is also a useful qualification for those who want to work in a catering or hospitality environment.  You will gain an understanding of the importance of food safety procedures, risk assessment and safe food handling.

Learners with any special needs can discuss these with the tutor at enrolment to ensure that the course is suitable or can be adapted for their needs.

If you think you already hold the Food Safety Level 2 qualification, please speak to the tutor at the information session.
