Transition Year Week Long Cookery & Healthy Eating Programme | Mon 24 to Fri 28 Feb | 10.30 to 13.00

The TY Week Long Programme designed to give students the confidence to cook for themselves, their friends & family, equipping them with the right nutritional knowledge as well as an appreciation for good ingredients. It's a fun week, in what is a real life skill, worth learning. 
We are limiting class sizes to 8 students per week to give each participant the right attention and personal tutoring to put them in good stead as they enter adulthood. On Day 5, the students will prepare a complete meal using the knowledge they have gathered over the week.  They will cost each dish and present the nutritional content.
Here is a breakdown of what each day will cover, subject to minor changes:
Bread: how to produce a loaf of bread - ciabatta, brown omega loaf. savory scones and flatbreads along with humous, pestos and dips to enjoy alongside.
Lunch: using protein and carbohydrates - chickpea & pepper salad, broccoli rice salad, super quinoa salad with roast vegetables, quick pasta salad 
One-Pot Wonders: black bean chilli, Thai curry, cashew cream carbonara, spaghetti bolognese, Mediterranean soup
Sweet Treats: how to prepare quality desserts, granola bar, fruit purees for frozen yogurt,  raw cheesecake, jaffa & toffee chocolate drops, mango mousse
The class will be divided into groups and produce a three-course meal using what they have learned in the days above.  They will produce a menu with the name of the dish, the nutrition content and the cost of producing the meal. 
The class is fully hands-on, students prepare, cook and clean up.
