Last week we launched Liverpool Can Cook – the training aspect of our Teaching Liverpool to Cook Campaign, with a launch party at The Home Quarter. A big thank you to everyone who attending the launch and showed their support. The evening went really well and it was great to see some new faces there to learn more about the Campaign and how we aim to teach this city to cook!
A massive thank you to Steve Parry, former Olympic Swimmer – who has really got behind the campaign and was happy to say a few words on why he believes Teaching Liverpool to Cook is important for the health of this city. See below for some photos from the evening. We will also have a full gallery of photos from the evening available soon.
To celebrate the success of our campaign and to help spread the word further – we have just published a newspaper telling our story so far – including the Teaching Liverpool to Cook Campaign. We need everyone to help us to get the paper out across the City and really get everyone talking about TLC. Contact us on 0151 650 6444 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you some copies to give out in your workplace or community.
Next step – the cookery!
We can’t wait to kick off the cookery training and this all begins in July. We will start by inviting all contributors to send a member of their staff on our Corporate Cookery and Networking evenings. These will take place on our state-of-the-art Cookery Studio and will involve chef demonstrations, practical cookery and a chance to enjoy the food that everyone has made over a glass of wine in our relaxing dining area. The perfect mix of food, drink and networking.
For any Community Groups and Organisations that have contributed to the campaign – we will be inviting their staff to attend our Community Development mornings at the Studio where we will introduce them to basic cookery skills and community based recipes. They will also be able to enjoy their food at the end of the session.
We have also started to recruit young people from across the City to take part in our Children and Young People Training – where we will give them the skills they need to be able to cook tasty and nutritious food for themselves and really get into cookery! All contributors can nominate young people they are involved with for this training, and we will also use our existing networks.
