The prospect of University can be a daunting experience not only for the new undergraduate, but also for their loved ones!
Being torn away from their ‘family’ environment, students find that they’re fending for themselves. Often new undergraduates suddenly find they have to put into practise, or quickly learn, basic lifestyle skills such as cooking, cleaning and staying healthy. Sharing accommodation or a kitchen can prove challenging. I remember during my student days, arguments about owned the milk/cheese that was in the fridge, which could have done with trained negotiators to resolve.
With all the excitement, pressure and new experiences of living away from home for the first time, eating healthily comes low on the agenda and it’s common for students to fall into bad eating habits.
The Cooking Academy is here to help with our ‘Student Survival Kit’ providing the ingredients every student should have to help them get started in the kitchen. Cooking is a life skill, one you can share with friends, and enjoy.
The Pack Includes:
- Three ‘Introduction to Cooking’ recipes from our popular cookery class, including a delicious chili con carne and a sizzling stir fry;
- A set of measuring spoons;
- A spice tin filled seven different spices to help get phenomenally flavoursome dishes;
- Turmeric Latte Blend to drink to help you avoid the dread ‘Fresher’s flu’!
- A delicious Garlic and Black Pepper spice blend used to flavour fish or chicken
The kit will make a great gift for students starting on their new adventure and also put loved ones’ mind at rest that they are sending them off, well looked after. When they return home at Christmas we offer the opportunity for students to replenish their kit with spices at discounted prices!
Our Introduction to Cooking tutors Xenia Murray, Sarah Leary and Kumud Gandhi are also available Monday to Friday (9am – 5:00pm) to assist students with their questions regarding the recipes included in the pack.
Call us on 01923 778880 before Monday 3rd September and quote ‘I’m a survivor’ to receive 10% off your survival kit!
