The thought of cooking your own meals can be daunting when you live away from home for the first time. And you probably won’t have the time, money or inclination to cook complicated and time-consuming recipes. Our online cookery course can be started at any time and completed at a convenient time for you. This course will provide you with the basic cooking skills you need, plus a collection of easy-to-make but nutritious recipes. There’s a mix of sweet and savoury dishes, and all of the dishes can be adapted, or a substitute recipe provided, to meet any dietary requirements. Recipes for Course 1 include: chocolate brownies, homemade pizza, carbonara pasta, bang-bang chicken, mini fruit pavlovas and healthy nachos. Recipes for Course 2 include: fish goujons, American style pancakes with fruit, one-tray chicken and chorizo bake, macaroni cheese and salmon risotto. All weekly recipes can be found at the bottom of this page. By the end of the course, you should feel sufficiently confident in the kitchen to show off your skills by inviting your friends and family for meals. How the course works As soon as you sign up, you’re able to start the course. You will be given access to the online portal where you’ll find each week’s recipes, together with a list of ingredients and a step-by-step guide to making the dish. This activity may count towards your Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Skills Section; please check with your DofE Leader for suitability before booking.
