About Us

Any Body Can Cook! improves lives by kindling a passion for cooking, infusing memories of food and preparation that are both positive and fun. Multi-award winning ABC Cook! engages individuals, promotes health, reduces isolation & builds communities through the sharing of  food coupled with the development of cooking skills.

All workshops deliver both in depth knowledge and hands on experience of the ingredients and methods.  Evidence-based content and delivery ensures sessions give participants a basic knowledge of how to prepare healthy and nutritious meals in an informal manner providing opportunities for family or community interaction, eating in a social context and some physical exercise. In an increasingly fast moving world the recipes created demonstrate how quick, easy and cheap it is to prepare and cook a healthy balanced meal from base ingredients.

Any Body Can Cook! sessions provide a stimulating and engaging learning environment for people of all ages and abilities and can be adapted to accommodate any need or dietary requirement. Tailored session content enables individuals and communities to make healthier life choices, equipping them with the practical skills needed to do this, supporting the prevention of diet-related diseases.

ABC Cook! courses deliver a fun and practical approach to healthy eating and nutrition - providing activities, resources and guidance on the origin of ingredients, constituents of a balanced diet for different family members, effective understanding of food labelling, safe and hygienic storage, preparation and cooking of food; money and energy saving tips when shopping and cooking, and increased confidence and enjoyment of cooking simple and nutritious meals as a group.

Our team inspire an enthusiasm for food and cookery. Everyone holds relevant qualifications in food safety, first aid and current DBS checks, and our own continuing professional development is embedded within our practice.


ABC Cook! has been operating on a not-for-profit model since it's inception in 2008.
