Ashburton Cooking Classes

Myself and a couple of my chef buddies are thinking of starting up a cooking school early next year to help our community learn to cook healthy meals from scratch using fresh food. Just seeking some feedback if our Ashburton residents and surrounding areas would be interested in this going ahead. It will be designed around the needs of individuals that are on budgets, teens going into the renting market or if you just want to learn. Thoughts and Ideas appreciated

I assumed that because daddylegs' is an Ashburtonian according to her profile that she wishes to remain there with this proposed venture. :-))

Good Luck. I wish you well.I tried to do the same thing in Lower HUtt and sadly was not a lot of interest. perhaps a small country town with a "sense of community" would work better. GOOD LUCK

Yes it is for ashburton area and don't want to be too costly for the community to come along and have some fun while they learn. We are looking to hire a school kitchen or polytechnic just putting feelers out there we have other ladies keen to pass on their skill ie preserving and a king pickles an chutneys we also have a Japanese lesson available so we want to listen also to what individuals would like to learn especially so we can cater to everyone's needs.

Wish I stilled lived down that way as I would be in like flynn. Would love to learn how to make a few Japanese style meals. The other ones such as pickles, chutney's and jam I do quite well . But the idea of teaching how to cook good wholesome meals on a tight budget would be worth while for many.
