No.10 Kitchen

No 10. The People’s Kitchen offers local residents opportunities to learn about healthy eating, nutrition and improve their cooking skills in small groups, in our bespoke teaching kitchen.

Our course programme covers a  variety of topics including classes for parents of young children, cooking for long term health conditions, weight management, a social lunch club and food to feel good!

We use produce from Greens community garden and The Hive where ever possible, aiming to cover topics such as eating on a budget, reducing food waste and most of all to find pleasure in cooking and food.

No. 10 The Peoples kitchen can help in a number of ways:

  • To get cooking in a safe, friendly environment. We focus on healthy, delicious and balanced meals made from scratch. Sometimes these are shared at a meal within the session, or you take home what you make.
  • We will start with whatever skills or interests you have and work together from there to get you cooking – you don’t need to be able to read or do maths in order to come either… We often have local volunteers in our groups who are friendly and helpful as well.
  • Try new foods and ingredients – with your tutor and the group, you can choose recipes you would like to experiment with. Popular choices are things like cheesy potato pie, chili con carne, macaroni cheese, chicken curry and homemade pizza.
  • Reduce your food costs, by sharing handy hints about budgeting, reduce food waste and cook seasonally.
  • If you have a diet related health conditions, weight management issues, allergies or intolerances – the cooking sessions can help to think of new ways to eat for your health – you also get to meet other people who are in the same boat as you.
  • Meet new people and have fun!

If you are a South Bristol based organisation and are interested in cookery for a group of your clients, please get in touch. We have done work with organisations such as New Fosseway school, Headway, Hawkspring, Knightstone and Young carers
