Kitchen Masters - Chatswood
Kitchen Masters – Cooking with a Disability is a Program designed to give people with a mild intellectual disability and low support needs, an opportunity to learn new skills in cooking and preparing food and to learn about shopping for food supplies.
This course is specifically aimed at giving participants, who are transitioning to independent living from a home based situation, additional cooking skills. Participants need to have reasonable communication skills.
Participants will learn about the importance of eating healthy foods and of handling food safely. The classes are also about having some fun and getting to know other people. Participants will be making a hot meal. They will be learning how to use sharp knives (if appropriate), graters and other cooking tools and utensils. The class will involve using kitchen utilities such as a hot stove and hot water for washing up.
