I have been approached by this organization to help them promote their event for sports teams. I am a fan of team building in different contexts and this seemed to be a good example of how you might get your team out of their typical roles. I have received no financial compensation or the like for posting this. I just hope this this catches someone’s eye as a great opportunity and wish Seasoned Cookery School continued success with their services and organization. Read on…
Celebrating Seasoned Cookery School’s 10th Birthday with Community Cookery Days
Season Cookery School turns ten years old in 2020. We can’t believe how time has flown, and we are so excited to be hitting our double digits. It is one of those times when we want to give back to the people who helped us grow. We would love to offer ten free days, one for every year of our life so far, for groups to experience our cookery school.
We think our cookery school is perfect for university students. Hear us out… we know students have a terrible rep for pizza boxes and pasta straight out of the pan. Yet, we know that university students could really benefit from some lessons in recipes that super cheap to cook but excellent brain food too. Our brain is powered by all sorts of chemicals that are impacted by our diet. Cinnamon for instance – known for reducing inflammation. Reduced inflammation helps circulation and improved blood flow helps to power those neurons. We are not scientists – but it kind of works that way. Put simply, if you can shape your diet to aid your brain, you could do better in your studies too.
But really, a day in our kitchen is a great way to get to know people. Cooking together and eating together is a wonderful way to bond. It is just fun. So, although you can learn to produce low cost, delicious meals, you can also get to know the people on your course. You might even live with the people who attend your day with you – imagine how that could boost shared cooking in the dorm kitchen.
If you are allocated one of our ten days in our kitchen, you will not only get the day for absolutely no cost – you will also get a free meal. We will provide all the ingredients and equipment for groups between 12 and 18 people. Then, at the end of the day, everyone will sit and eat what has been produced.
We have arranged days for all sorts of groups. We could use this experience to help you design your bespoke day at our cookery school. One of our favourite examples was the young people from a secondary school who took part in a “Junior Bake Off”. The competition was fierce! They enjoyed a master class with a Bake Off finalist – getting some proper tips in how to make food tasty.
We think that university students would just love an opportunity to socialise. We held a wonderful day for injured service personnel and their partners. The day allowed them to meet up with people in a similar situation to them, form bonds and not feel quite so alone. For new students away from home for the first time, this could be just the thing to help them feel settled in their new life.
Our workshop with the Teenage Cancer Trust worked to teach crowd-pleasing dishes – the sort of food that offers nutrition and comfort. The day aimed to show how diet could aid recovery – but also support your sense of well being too.
You think there is a catch. You think you cannot possibly get a free fun day in a kitchen with your mates – followed by a lovely meal. But you can! There is no catch. You just need to gather together your group of 12 – 18 people and get yourself to our kitchens. We will then provide everything required to make your day amazing.
You just need to recruit your group and get yourself here, via the M6, M1 or A50 – we will even provide free parking. You will find us in the grounds of the Catton estate. If you are selected, we will work with you to choose a midweek date that suits your group. Interested? You can learn more here – and nominate yourself and your group for this extra special experience.
The only thing we ask is that you tell people about your day. Pass the word about how you loved your day. We can provide pictures and recipes. Then, the next time you write something for the student newspaper or the university website, show people the food you cooked and the time you loved.
Contact us today if you would like to know more. We could offer a day that kick starts the time of your life at university.
