Here at volition we decided that we should make available cooking sessions to help people who attend the volition course with basic cooking skills but mainly to show them that you can cook various meals within a inexpensive budget and stretch them pennies further. We wanted to give people the insight to how easy and quick certain meals can be made and also hope that they would take what they learn home with them to use to supplier cheaper taster meals for their family’s but at the same time bring out there confidence not only with cooking but also mixing with people and making new friends, so we set our plans in motion and Volitions first cooking session took place on Monday 4th September 2017.
We had 4 volition learners take part on our first session, we decided together that we would all make a vegetable chilli due some of the learner’s dietary requirements, once we had decided on this all the fun began. Each of us all prepared various ingredients for our recipe. It was a great success and we had amazing feedback form everyone who took part. Going forward we believe this is really going to be a success and we are going to achieve what we set out for.
