We at the Mildmay community centre would love to get the people in this neighbourhood to cook more, whether they are complete beginners or keen cooks. Nutritious home-cooked food is an important element for a healthy lifestyle helping to combat diet-related ill health and improve wellbeing. We also know that cooking and sharing meals with others is an important way to reduce isolation, build community spirit, confidence and wellbeing. By providing a Community Kitchen this will encourage people to cook for others when they have learnt new recipes and skills.
Every bit of work we do in the community kitchen has food at its heart, as we know food brings people together in so many ways. Whether it’s sharing a meal, cooking a healthy dinner or growing your own vegetables to eat, good eating can enhance lives beyond a meal. Our kitchen will be a physical place where we can share our stories and recipes.
We encourage everybody to come along to join in our planned workshops or just for a friendly chat. Our workshops will suit all tastes, ages and abilities. We are offering everybody in the community the chance to learn about great healthy eating creating new recipes, and to participate in seasonal eating, family cookery and healthy eating on a budget.
We are asking all of our residents to share their favourite recipes with us, so that we can create a recipe book for all of our community to enjoy and share with family, friends and neighbours.
