I had a wonderful morning at Chequers Cookery School learning how cooking easy meals from scratch can help maintain a healthy heart.
The Chequers Cookery School runs free cookery courses for parents, the unemployed and people suffering from medical conditions who benefit from being taught basic cookery skills. This course was aimed at diabetics as well. I learnt a lot, the food was amazing and these classes are clearly really helpful for local people with diabetes or heart conditions.
The cookery course is being funded by Heart Research UK in partnership with Subway. Everyone attending the 8 week course will be asked to pass on what they learn each week by teaching someone else the skills they have gained, such as a friend, neighbour of family member.
It is really important that we encourage people of all ages to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle, not just the groups that are usually targeted like school children.
If you think you might be able to benefit from a course at Chequers, do get in touch with them to find out how you can get involved.
