‘Ministry of Food is about getting people cooking again by teaching them the basics: how to cook, how to shop, and how to enjoy food in a way that benefits not only individuals, but also their families. We want to give as many people as possible the tools and information they need to be able to make better food choices.’
I am getting very excited! This weekend Andrew and I start our ten weeks of cooking classes at the Jamie’s Ministry of Food in Ipswich. I jumped at the opportunity to take part. Anything that helps a Mum provide quick, easy and most importantly healthy meals for her family is very exciting. I was in the hairdressers yesterday and some Mum’s were discussing how they become stuck for healthy meal ideas and would love some inspiration. Well fingers crossed I have found mine….. I can’t wait. I also would love to lose some weight. So this is a great kick start. And yes you did read it correctly Andrew is also attending. It is a wonderful opportunity for him to learn to cook but I have to say I am looking forward to us doing this together. My Mum and Dad are taking care of Ben (love them to bits!!!) while Andrew and I cook together.
Our first class is this Saturday. We will receive a “Participant Start-Up Kit”, with a folder of recipes and information, a Jamie’s Ministry of Food bag and an apron. Each week we need to take a tupperware container because each participant cooks a family meal for four to take home.
I can’t wait to let you know how it goes!!
