Budding chefs pass on skills plea in Waveney area

Budding chefs in Norfolk and Suffolk have been urged to take part in a scheme to pass on their culinary skills to the community.

NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney wants to teach people how to eat and prepare healthy but cheap meals.

They are appealing for volunteers to undergo six days of training to then hold their own basic cookery classes.

The lessons will be part of the Cook Healthy Eat Well (Chew) project run by the Great Yarmouth and Waveney NHS.

Helen Johnston, healthy living development manager, said: "We need people who are enthusiastic about creating nutritious meals with simple ingredients and techniques and are committed to working with people from their local communities.

"The course is a great opportunity for anyone who is interested in developing their own skills, gaining vital work experience or exploring whether working in catering might be the career for them."

As part of the training, volunteers will be assessed for certificates in food safety, healthier food and special diets and developing cooking skills.

More information will be available at an open evening on 6 July.
