Student Survival

Going off to university brings lots of challenges and the thought of self-catering can be quite frightening. There seems so much to remember, shopping, recipes, culinary terms, which knives to use, food hygiene etc. Prepare yourself for life’s next great adventure by joining our Student Survival Cookery Camp. It might even take your mind off the dreaded ‘results day’!


You will learn a host of new skills including:

• Thrifty shopping

• Knowing what culinary terms mean

• Preparing & cooking food from scratch
• How to use herbs & spices
• Techniques of making sauces
• Roasting, baking, grilling
• Menu planning
• Hygiene in the kitchen

We will give you an opportunity to cook simple, healthy and tasty dishes and come away with easy to use recipes and tips. Your confidence will grow with the knowledge that you can prepare quick and inexpensive meals.

Boys and Girls between the ages of 16 and 19, all abilities welcome and no previous experience required.

A good start for those hoping to ‘do a Ski season’ which may involve catering for a group of people in a chalet

All ingredients, equipment, recipes will be provided. You will just need to come along and enjoy yourself! You will be given your own Student Survival Handbook at the end of the course.
