Get Cooking! is an exciting new social enterprise that provides cooking lesson courses teaching people to make Simple Good Food. These are usually over 10 weeks although vary. Each class usually lasts 1 and a half to two hours. We use training kitchens in different Academy’s around Leeds, although our main base is at the new Leeds East Academy where we have a new 'accessible' training kitchen where the majority of our courses are hosted.
Get Cooking! teaches basic methods using simple and fresh ingredients. Lessons revolve around particular skills or types of dishes to help you to learn. Customers take away not only the food made ( which is usually a dish for 2) but skills for life…
Get Cooking! lessons are fun and sociable… It’s all about enjoying food and cooking!
Get Cooking! is about making learning inclusive. Get Cooking! works with people with disabilities .Lessons can be accessible to people with sensory, mobility and cognitive impairments or mental health problems. Different courses are designed to meet different needs.
Get Cooking! lessons are open to anyone who wants to learn to cook. Courses are designed according to the needs of each group and dishes have a particular theme
