Duke of Edinburgh Award – Cook at Home Course

  • Healthy

    We ensure our recipes are nutritional and well balanced to encourage healthy eating into adult life. We offer a vegetarian course and vegan substitutes can be provided on request.

  • Cook At Home

    We offer a home based opportunity for young people to engage and be inspired in cooking nutritious food from scratch. This course is also suitable as a stand-alone course for those that would like to develop their cookery skills before leaving home or for young people that are home schooled.

  • Skills and confidence

    We hope to provide our students with essential life skills that will stick with them into adulthood, but will also boost their confidence now; the satisfaction to be gained from cooking from scratch should not be underestimated.

Who is this course for?

Here at Smart Raspberry we are committed to teaching children of all ages about the importance of being able to cook for themselves and others. We offer hands on practical D of E cookery classes in a number of our locations but we realise that there are many students that cannot access our classes, so we thought it would be handy for us to put together this “Cook at Home” course.

It is ideal for any young person interested in learning to cook as a skill, whether it is just for fun or as part of the D of E award. It offers a home based opportunity to engage and be inspired in cooking nutritious food from scratch. This course is also suitable as a stand-alone course for students that would like to develop their cookery skills before leaving home or for young people that are home schooled.

How it works:

We will email you the “Cook at Home” booklet which includes;

  • 12 or 24 delicious recipes – main courses, bread, baking and desserts (vegetarian option available) using different skills and techniques to prepare from scratch
  • Food safety & good hygiene guidelines
  • General kitchen safety guidelines
  • Equipment lists for each recipe
  • Helpful tips for each recipe

What support do you offer?

We will be available to support students by email with any questions they may have during the course. Students will be required to email us feedback and photos for verification. On successful completion we will issue a certificate and complete the D of E assessors report online.
