Brunch Bunch club for adults with learning disabilities

This event has already run

  Friday 21 Feb 2020 - Friday 17 Jul 2020

  10:00 am  - 12:00 pm

We are running a monthly cookery club for people with learning disabilities to learn cooking skills and new recipes in a sociable setting.

Our ‘Brunch Bunch’ sessions will cook a light, mid-morning meal together. We will learn simple recipes for tasty breakfasts and light lunches, such as: pancakes, French toast, soups, dips, salads, bread, cakes and biscuits.

We will share the work to create our dishes so there will be plenty of time to socialise and chat. We welcome participants who can attend independently, as well as those who may need a carer’s support to get the most out of the sessions.

We are also developing a set of picture recipes which we hope participants can use at home and will be asking for feedback on these during the sessions for those who are interested.
