Who is the course for?

Pudding and Pie 12-week practical home cooking course is for any young person who wants to achieve a skill that counts towards their Duke of Edinburgh Award. We’ll provide you with everything you’ll need to cook delicious and nutritious food from scratch whilst gaining an essential life skill – all from the comfort of your own home kitchen!


Your son or daughter can enjoy doing the course and learning new skills to make a meal. Its great value for money and the recipes are very varied in choice.Quite often young people of this age are super busy with after school activities and haven’t the space in their busy lives to get to commit to another after school club. They’re also great for students heading off to university.
