Reviews From DofE Participants

who chose Essential Cookery One for their Skills Section

"I really enjoyed all the recipes that I had to cook. Some of them I adapted slightly as my sister has multiple allergies. I learned a number of cooking skills that I have not done before. The course has shown me that I can actually cook. I have printed out all the recipes that I have done and I will use these going forward to still cook meals for my family"

C.S. Bronze DofE Award Participant

"I enjoyed making different types of dishes. I learned to read the instructions step by step. I learned also knife skills, measurement, and combining ingredients"

G.W. Bronze DofE Award Participant

"I enjoyed learning delicious and useful recipes that I can use in the the future. I feel more confident in developing my cooking skills and seeing what I can achieve by following recipes. I have enjoyed making meals my family can enjoy"

C.N. Silver DofE Award Participant

"I enjoyed making the bolognaise the most (will definitely make again in the future) and I learnt there are many more food groups in each home cooked meal than I thought"

H.J. Bronze DofE Award Participant
