Dof E Three Month Skills Section, Essential Cooking 2 Course

This course is an outstanding addition or alternative to our best selling Essential Cooking 1

In this information packed course, you will learn how to be a confident cook whether it is for your family, when you're starting at Uni, moving to a more independent life or just simply for enjoyment.

Every week, this original course takes one ingredient and shows you how to cook it properly, showing you its versatility across cooking methods, flavour combinations and how you can use it to produce a range of meals.

Cooking is not complicated and in this Essential Cooking 2 course, we de-mystify some of the complicated recipes and advice you might have heard before.
With shopping and budgeting advice each week, you will feel more confident and independent!

At the end of the course, you will receive your U:Bee Completion Certificate and Assessor's Report.

This course is ideal for anyone with an interest in cooking, preparing meals for family and friends and being self-sufficient.

NOTE: This is a standalone course and you do not have to have completed Essential Cooking Part 1 to take this course.

Reviews From DofE Participants

who chose Essential Cookery Two for their Skills Section

"I enjoyed that I could make my family dinner when needed and they enjoyed it. I also liked the fact that I can now cook things that I didn’t know existed or that I could cook. E.G. butter chicken curry, vegetable casserole. I can now use this in my future and can keep a balanced diet"

L.K. Bronze DofE Award Participant

"Cooking new food that I have never tried or cooked by myself before. I learned how to cook chicken, time management in the kitchen, knife skills. I learned about the food groups and how to make balanced meals"

I.M. Bronze DofE Award Participant

"I enjoyed the cooking course, which encouraged me to try some new foods. I liked that the course was weekly and easy to follow. The key things i have learnt is timing and being organised when cooking which improved each week. I liked the course being online and would recommend Ubee to my friends"
