Summary

DofE Residential Cookery Course

Come and complete your DofE Gold Residential Course, whilst learning the valuable life skill of cookery, in a relaxed and friendly environment, at our AAP Approved Cookery Course.

What separates us from the rest?  We are a family run school with an emphasis of teaching our students about food rather than merely following a recipe. We put the fun back into cooking!

We are a Duke of Edinburgh AAP (Approved Activity Provider) and have been running these courses since 2004 so have the knowledge and experience to teach the beginnings of cooking to those that need to learn.

We put an emphasis on affordable home cooking and teaching students how to avoid wastage – great tips for young living at uni or moving out of home.

On the Thursday we have a wine tasting, followed by our famous dinner party where students have the option to invite their friends/family to show off their new found skills and to put cooking for numbers into reality.

For accommodation, numbers depending, students will stay at The Avenue family residence just 5 minutes from the school or a family run B&B that The Avenue work closely with. Rooms will be male or female shared rooms or private rooms (numbers depending).

We'll even entertain groups in the evening too- evening activities will be anything from tennis to bowling or snuggling up with popcorn for a movie night.

By the end of the course you will leave knowing more than you would have thought possible as well as having made friends for life with both students and The Avenue family.
