We are excited to announce that the Food Partnership plans to open a community kitchen and cookery school where people can cook, learn new skills and enjoy food together.
The kitchen is being built in a large ground-floor space in Community Base, Queens Road as a teaching kitchen and venue for hire. We will host and run cookery workshops for all, from beginners to experienced cooks, so everyone can experience the benefits of cooking and eating together, regardless of finance, confidence or ability.
We have been teaching people to cook for almost 10 years, so we are excited to expand our offer of courses in a brand-new, accessible and purpose-built space. If you are keen to get involved, find out more about volunteering in the Community Kitchen.
Have totally loved doing this. It has really opened my eyes to cooking with fresh ingredients.

* The initial building work in the Community Kitchen is supported by MacConvilles Surveying and funded by the Veolia Environmental Trust and the players of the People’s Postcode Lottery with support from the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation. As part of its wide range of activities the Kitchen will deliver Jamie’s ‘Ministry of Food’ cooking course.
