Healthy eating on agenda

Accommodation Services has launched a series of cookery classes for students at its newly established Cook School.

Chopped vegetables

The classes are open to students living in both catered and self-catered accommodation, and focus on the benefits of preparing healthy meals with fresh local produce.

The Cook School initiative is part of Accommodation Service’s food strategy.

While ready-made meals will always be a popular choice among students, we hope the Cook School will be a step towards changing behaviours and demonstrating that cooking with fresh ingredients can be much more cost effective, more healthy – and fun.

Range of recipes

The two-hour cookery classes are aimed at students who are eager to hone their culinary skills and learn more about food.

The lessons cover a range of basic recipes, as well as knife skills, food hygiene and safety.
