Jamie’s Ministry of Food Cooking Program
As the original Jamie's Ministry of Food course, the Program provides participants with the most comprehensive skill set in the kitchen. It's ideal for beginners and intermediate cooks, but even experienced cooks come away with new skills, techniques and knowledge.
The Jamie's Ministry of Food Program is a hands-on cooking course, using Jamie Oliver's recipes and his philosophy on cooking, buying, storing and eating good, fresh, healthy food.
Participants will learn to make key recipes that cover every meal; from breakfast and sides to lunch and dinner. Taught by professional food trainers, participants will learn knife skills and techniques to make it simpler and quicker to cook delicious meals on a budget. Participants will learn how to bring the best flavours out of fresh ingredients and how to meal plan and budget so your food goes further.
At the end of each 90-minute class, the meal is shared and enjoyed together. Participants will take away a home-cooked meal for two to share with friends or family. Book a course today to learn how to make delicious, nutritious, quick, everyday meals on a budget.
