My Kitchen: ‘My confidence has rocketed!’

Scott attended a Healthy Hearts course at the Community Kitchen with his support worker Sue. He wanted to learn how to cook and find out about a healthier lifestyle.

Scott says:

“I liked everything about the course – the food and learning skills, but also meeting new people. I really liked the staff and colleagues. I learnt knife skills and really enjoyed chopping the vegetables. I’ve made the muffins and the pizzas many times since the course. I make healthy choices now – salads from Aldi, not crisps any more.

“I feel more confident in myself and less depressed. My confidence has rocketed! I’m now doing a ‘back to work’ scheme. I want a part-time kitchen or bar job.

“I’d highly recommend the course and would do another course in a heartbeat. Please do more!”

Sue says:

“Scott has much more confidence and now knows to use oven cloths and has a good awareness of kitchen safety. The recipes were really useful and easy to follow, and Scott uses the recipes as visual aids for going shopping now.”
