Well it’s been a bit quiet on the Community Kitchen side for the last couple of months. I’ve been working with several groups to develop skills whilst having fun, but our drop in sessions have suffered as a consequence. To that end, I’m putting on 2 Saturday Family Baking Sessions during the summer holidays – so if you fancy something a bit different why not book yourself onto a session. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place or find out more information.
Well it’s been a bit quiet in the Kitchen over the past couple of weeks, so though it was time that I updated you on what’s going on in the Kitchen.
Our biggest news is that we were officially opened by HRH Princess Royal yesterday, Monday 6th March. Whilst enjoying a short tour around the facility as a whole, the Princess Royal chatted with young people who were cooking in the kitchen and watched the Smoothie Bikes in action.
On sadder news, we are coming to the end of 2 of our strands of funding this month. We say goodbye to Angela who has been working on the Climate Challenge Fund project over the past 10 months whilst the Eat Canny funding concludes after 3 years. This will have an impact on the number of sessions we offer during the week, reducing from 8 per week to only 4. Similarly as attendance at our drop in sessions is not as good as hoped, we may start to focus more on specific group work, only offering sessions to the public 2 or 3 times a month. That said, if funding improves then we will obviously look to offer more sessions.
This month, we will have 2 Family cooking sessions:

Something a bit different at our Pizza session on Friday night. Cauliflower Base pizza – it went down a storm!
The Community Kitchen will be opening it’s doors to the public on Thursday 23rd February. This is a chance to have a look around the facility, chat to the staff and let us know what type of class you would like to see us provide in the future.
We hope to see you there
