Cooking in the community – Manchester Carers

Find out how our Refresh cookery workshops are teaching people how to make healthy meals!

What is Refresh?

Our Refresh programme aims to improve participants’ skills and knowledge about how to prepare, cook and enjoy nutritious food – for themselves and their families/friends.
Participants learn how to:
  • Lead happier and healthier lifestyles
  • Improve their cookery skills, confidence and resilience
  • Reduce food waste and budget effectively
  • Healthy meals from scratch
Our day course had a Mexican theme so at lunch, the carers learned how to make chicken mole served in handmade tacos alongside fresh pico de gallo – they went down a treat! Throughout the day we discussed eating habits, favourite chefs and recipe ideas – we also priced up each dish so people could see how cost-effective (and tasty!) it was to cook healthy meals from scratch. At the end of the day, we received some lovely positive feedback from people who took part, including John, a full-time carer who said:
‘Thoroughly enjoyed my day at the workshop – never thought I could make amazing dishes like these at home at such a low price.‘
Thanks to everyone we met on the day, see you again soon!
