Cracking Good Food is a Manchester-based cookery school and community cooking network that promotes cooking from scratch sustainably and seasonally through value-for-money classes for the general public, hands-on sessions and courses with community groups, pop-up demonstrations at festivals, bespoke events for companies and conferences, and wild-food foraging workshops. We are a social enterprise.
We bring together experienced chefs keen to share their knowledge and skills and food-lovers keen to learn – whether you’re a kitchen novice looking to develop basic methods and meals or a practised cook who wants to improve your techniques or extend your repertoire.
Our community programme involves working with a wide range of vulnerable and disadvantaged community groups, delivering cooking sessions and courses geared towards their specific budgetary and nutritional needs. So far we have worked with over 40 different community groups.
Our class sizes are small so that everyone gets a chance to prep, cook and eat together, maximise their learning experience and simply enjoy cooking. Our informative team is on hand throughout to answer questions and offer inspirational tips, such as how to adapt recipes to accommodate budget, seasonality, tastes and nutritional requirements, or where to source sustainable food locally.
We look forward to cooking cracking good food with you soon!
