Who we are

Cracking Good Food is a Manchester-based cookery school and community cooking network.
We are a social enterprise that promotes cooking from scratch using sustainable and seasonal ingredients.

What we do

We deliver a range of value-for-money classes and courses with community groups and for the general public.
We also deliver pop-up demonstrations at festivals and wild-food foraging workshops as well as bespoke events for organisations and conferences.

Who we work with

As well as our open-to-all courses, we work with local organisations and community groups to deliver cooking sessions geared towards their needs such as specific nutritional and budget requirements. In the last four years we have worked with over 60 different organisations and community groups.

How we do it

Our experienced cooks are keen to share their knowledge and skills with people who are keen to learn – whether you’re a novice looking to learn basic skills or a practised cook. Our cooking leaders are supported by expert assistants who can offer tips on how adapt recipes or where to source ingredients locally

We keep our class sizes small so that everyone gets the opportunity to prepare, cook and then eat together. So as well as learning really practical skills and enjoying the cooking, we finish by enjoying a top quality meal together.

We look forward to cooking cracking good food with you soon
– good food is not expensive if you know what to cook, and how
