Themed Weeks

To ensure there is plenty of inspiration, this year's resources correspond to weekly themes celebrating the many joys of cooking: Cooking for People, Cooking for Pleasure, Cooking for the Planet and Cooking for the Pocket.

Week One: 30th Oct - 5th Nov – Cooking for People

Halloween and Bonfire Night are the perfect times to bring your loved ones, classmates or community together through hearty and comforting food. We have a whole range of tried-and-tested recipes ready to use, including a sumptuous sausage hotpot or super simple garlic pinwheels.

6th Nov - 12th Nov – Cooking for Pleasure

Whether it’s sharing cooking skills or food memories or enjoying a warm fruit crumble on a chilly night, preparing, and eating food can bring joy in so many ways. This week is all about connecting with others and sharing experiences and culture through cooking.

Week Three: 13th Nov - 19th Nov – Cooking for the Planet

This week we focus how food can have a positive impact on the planet, by looking at seasonality, locally grown and organic. As well as handy tips like how volunteering can be a great way to cook and share with your community, school or loved ones.

Week Four: 20th Nov - 24th Nov – Cooking for the Pocket

With costs rising across the board, this week we pull out some store cupboard showstoppers, speedy staples and simple nutritious recipes to cook creatively on a budget, with the little addition of a simple yet sensational seasonal streusel!
