Our Kitchen Confidence for School Leavers course is for 17 to 25 year olds. It runs over two weeks and each week you’ll learn a different set of recipes and essential cooking techniques. You can attend both weeks, or pick whichever one is best for the recipes and cooking techniques that you’d like to learn.

Whether you just want to improve your cooking skills for fun, or you’re off to Uni and would like to expand your cooking repertoire and independence, this course will give you a flying start.

You’ll learn how to create meals that are inexpensive, healthy and full of flavour. We’ll give you ideas on how to creatively utilise leftovers and provide essential tips on how to affordably keep a well stocked cupboard to ensure you can always put together quick, healthy and impressive meals with what you have at hand.

Some of the recipes you’ll learn in this course include:

Mediterranean roast chicken with slaw and corn on the cob
