Taking a D of E online cookery course is an excellent choice for the skills requirement of your bronze, silver or gold Duke of Edinburgh award.

My cookery course contains 30 simple recipes and the associated cooking tutorial videos; that’s enough for you to choose one a week for 3 or 6 months. There is a mixture of sweet and savoury and there should be enough variety to suit most tastes! 

When you have completed the required number of weekly sessions, I will sign off your skills section – you just need to email me the photos of all of your dishes (I will send you details of how to do this when you register).  

Through my D of E kitchen, you will gain valuable life skills, work on your organisational skills and have the opportunity to express yourself creatively.
