Back to Basics Cookery Classes

18 Nov 2019

Starts Tonight - Monday 18th November.  3.45 at Holy Trinity Church Crypt.
Sarita McDermott from Realitea Tearoom in Ripon, and Helen MacKenzie are going to provide Back to Basics cookery classes that are free of charge, demonstrating how to cook meals on a budget from scratch. Their class will run on a Monday afternoon from 3.45 in Holy Trinity Church Crypt, starting this coming Monday (November 18th, Tonight!!!) and running fortnightly thereafter. Each session will demonstrate a starter, main course and a dessert, with the emphasis on providing delicious, nutritious, healthy meals whilst working within a budget. Parents will then be given a bag of ingredients and a recipe card for the three dishes which they can make in the comfort of their own home.
"The classes are available to anyone who is interested and wants to learn some basic cooking skills. Children are also welcome and will be looked after by a DBS checked member of our team - or they can join in with the cooking process if they so wish. The idea is that parents don't choose not to come simply because they have childcare issues - we want to take any obstruction out of the equation!"
"You may ask why we are offering this service. It is our belief that the six week summer holidays can be very expensive for parents as they are having to provide the lunchtime meal that is normally catered for by schools. This is an even greater expense if that meal is provided free of charge. We thought that by taking cooking 'Back to Basics' and teaching parents how to cook with cheap, fresh ingredients, would be an ideal way to bring families closer together and enjoy the whole cooking experience."
Three cafes and two restaurants in Ripon are all buying into the scheme and we will all take turns to demonstrate our favourite meals - Italian, Chinese, Indian and British dishes are all featuring before Christmas!
This is a great initiative and we are lucky to have local people who are willing to go the extra mile for us!
