LCRN is working with legendary Hackney chef, Parkholme Supper Club’s Alicia Weston trialing a series of lessons funded by the Co-operative Community Fund that will teach people to cook tasty, home cooked food without breaking the bank.
These lessons will take place over March and are offered completely free (including the food!). They are aimed at people on benefits who would either like to learn to cook more cheaply, or people who would like to learn to cook to save money on takeaways, etc.
They are on Tuesdays and will take place at the Healthy Living Centre, 170 Pitfield Street, London N1 6JP.
The dates are the 4,11,18 and 25th March and the classes will start at 12 noon and last 2 hours.
Absolute beginners are welcome.
In the lessons you will learn to make one dish, hands on, and another will be demonstrated (you may be able to take part a bit), which you can then try. You will be provided with recipes to take home.
If you would like to cook these dishes again at home, you can buy the ingredients at cost price from us after the lesson, meaning that the meals will cost only £1.25 per person. (For the first lesson they will be HALF PRICE). This is a good economical way to buy it as you won’t have any waste and will only have exactly the ingredients you need like ginger and spices, rather than buying a whole packet.
