This course is very practical and it teaches you how to plan a meal,  select  your ingredients, prepare and cook healthy menus.   You will learn the importance of healthy eating and what makes up a balanced diet; we use quizzes and puzzles to add to the variety of learning approaches.

Many of the fresh vegetables and herbs we use in our kitchen are grown in our own gardens at Scotts and you will also go out to buy other ingredients from local shops in Tonbridge and elsewhere.

You will learn about food hygiene and kitchen safety and also have the chance to work towards a Certificate in Food Hygiene.Development Centre 2
