In the absence of any cookery clubs to run we’ve been putting together some cook-along videos for people to follow at home. Initially we made the recipes we missed at the end of last term (Chocolate and Banana Bread & Butter Pudding and Stuffed Peppers) but we’re now starting to explore a wider range of dishes, trying to use ingredients that are relatively easy to get hold of at the moment - the first one is a really simple no-flour peanut butter cookie recipe.
All these cook-along videos, plus any new ones we make (we’re aiming for one per week) are/will be available to view on Youtube via the link below:
We’re also going to be doing short daily cookery themed challenges and other bits and pieces on our Facebook page:
