Event description
A Panel Discussion on transforming lives through cooking

About this Event

Three uniquely placed women discuss how teaching a new skill – specifically cooking and baking - benefits the pupil with both physical and mental confidence .

When someone learns how to cook, they are learning (how to read a recipe and interpret the instructions), numeracy (how measurements work, how to halve a recipe) and science (nutrition, what heat does to transform raw food into cooked food) – and even art when it comes to decorating or plating up.

In addition you are giving someone the skills to bake a child a birthday cake, or simply put a nutritious meal on the family table and, with luck and confidence, employability.

The teacher also has a role in mentoring and monitoring mental well-being, and in the case of our guests for this webinar, a continuing resource for career advice.

Sheila Dillon of BBC Radio 4's The Food Programme will lead the discussion with Lucy Vincent (Founder, Food Behind Bars) Rachel Stonehouse (Head Bakery Trainer, Luminary Bakery) and Catherine Sloman (Teacher, Bread Ahead Bakery and owner Kitchen Confidence Cookery School).

A Q & A will follow the talk.
