Everyone’s kitchen-Adult Cooking group
Previously known as “Tend and share”, the adult cooking group evolved into Everyone’s kitchen. “Tend and share” became an autonomous group who was meeting at the Maxwell Centre (prior Covid).
The Adult Cooking Group runs twice a week, on Mondays from 11am to 1pm and an afternoon session in the centre and garden. All diets are welcome!
Everyone’s kitchen offers the chance to roam in the garden to harvest the ingredients needed, to identify and get more familiar with vegetables and herbs and to discover new flavours. Edibles flowers have been a success as they brighten your table, you dish and your heart!
Participants get together and cook a different menu every week which reinforce the cooking skills and the confidence. Sharing a homemade meal brings empowerment and social interaction which is what the Maxwell Centre in aiming for. Leftovers can be taken home but it doesn’t happen often!
Participants, coming from different backgrounds, are encouraged to come up with ideas of menu and to share their cooking experiences.
Despite the situation faced in 2020-2021, we found new ways to deliver those sessions: a barbeque has been set up in the garden allowing the participants to enjoy warm meal and to realise that even with very little equipment they achieved to make great meals!
And as for all our recipes, they are here!
