Great course for young children.

Venue could do with being better; no cooker to cook the food so had to take it home not practical.

Thank you for your comments

I am glad that you feel the course is beneficial for young children.

Thank you for your comment around the venue. We endeavour to find venues that are centrally located, in an area that requires a cook4life and with a kitchen. Unfortunately there are occasions when venues are not as we would like. However staff wish us to deliver a session. As a result we endeavour to tailor the sessions to the venue we have whilst still enabling people to do some food preparation. I will discuss these comments with my colleagues and see how practically it is to use an electric wok or hot-plates enabling some cooking to take place.
