Teaching a City to Cook

Teaching a City to Cook

Resources and experiences for schools and youth organisations to help young people cook with fresh ingredients.

Teaching a city to cook’s aim is to get the city cooking at home using fresh, seasonal produce to improve our diets and our health.

We want to engage young people so they: 

  • learn about food and nutrition
  • develop a range of cooking skills that will help them now and into the future
  • are aware of different food cultures

To support this we’ll provide your school or youth organisation with:

  • cooking award schemes
  • digital learning pack
  • visiting chefs for your schooll

Teaching a City to Cook digital pack

This digital pack includes nutrition messages, videos to support basic cooking skills and recipes. 

Some of the skills can be combined such as using the bread making with sauces so you can make pizza. 

If you want your school or organisation’s logo on any resources just email us with a copy of the logo at sugarsmart@bristol.gov.uk

Some lessons plans will include links to online 'how to' videos on the BBC Good Food website.
