Class Overview

Getting ready for Uni life is an exciting time but rather daunting for a young person. Leaving home with no clue about making your own food can be a worry if they’ve never left home. Greenwich Pantry’s Cook & Eat team are running a two day course for pre Uni students who want to prep for Uni life and make the most of their time away from home.

Our workshops will help pre Uni students gain a solid overview of how to manage their time in the kitchen and gain essential skills for healthy living in Uni. Students can kiss goodbye to fish and chips every night of the week and keep a healthy Pantry for a balanced lifestyle. Our expert chefs will show you how to plan for meals and cook delicious recipes using ingredients that are easily accessible, share tips on cooking within healthy guidelines and 'wow' you with colourful nutrient rich food that you can replicate at home. We'll discuss label reading and how best to avoid unnatural E numbers that every human body can do without.

Learning new things about food is fun, and will open your mind to endless possibilities and with great group discussions this course will help everyone interested to learn kitchen and cooking skills for independent living as a student.

Working with our exprienced instructors, you wll leave with a sense of accomplishment and more importantly, confidence to plan, cook, make or bake your own food.
