Event Summary

Men of Oxford: Are you finding it difficult to prepare quick and tasty meals for a one-person household? Struggling to feed yourself hearty meals on a budget, on a daily basis?

Join us at the kitchen of The Oxford Academy for six evenings of buliding your very own kitchen toolkit of skills, techniques and ingredients to help you create convenient and tasty meals at home!

Good Food Oxford are offering this free cookery programme to older men from Blackbird Leys and Rose Hill who would like to learn to cook more from scratch and include more vegetables in their diet. This new course is a series of six introductory sessions designed to introduce you to some new and delicious ways of cooking simply with fresh vegetables.

Participants will gain experience in seasoning, combining flavours and cooking methods, giving them confidence to experiment themselves once back in their own kitchens. Every participant will also be given a store cupboard of ingredients which they will build on each week to enable them to try out what they learned in the class at home. Those who attend all six of the sessions even get to take home a free cooking utensil!

Classes take place at The Oxford Academy from 6 to 8pm on six Tuesdays in March and April, starting on the 19th of March.

No prior experience in cooking required.

Important notice: The course is targetted at residents of South-East Oxford, in particular Blackbird Leys and Rose Hill. If you live in another part of Oxford, you're still welcome to apply, but we may have to put you on a waiting list until mid March.

Event dates: six Tuesdays from 19/03 until 23/04/2019
