Eating delicious food is one of life’s pleasures and learning to make something tasty from scratch is a life skill that we can learn at any age. Whether you’re a star baker or a novice cook, you’ll find some tasty recipes and techniques here to make at home. Why not try something new like making lemon curd or making a Greek pitta bread? Our tutors are experienced cooks and bakers and will take you through some simple recipes step by step. You’ll find details of what you need to get started and wherever possible, recipes use ingredients that are easy to get hold of and standard kitchen equipment. Some of the sessions have accompanying instruction sheets to print and download.
Some cooking and baking sessions involve using sharp knives, heat or electrical equipment. Please take care to ensure that your health and safety are a priority when taking part in these sessions.
Tutor: Irini Tzortzoglou, 2019 Masterchef winner
