Course description

During this course you will learn BSL vocabulary for food, quantities, cooking techniques, equipment and utensils.

You will make a selection of seasonal summer dishes from main meals to desserts: incl. family favourites, seasonal sensations and sweet treats.

Each week will begin with a list of BSL vocabulary that you will need for the recipe and use during the session.

We’ll then prepare and make the recipe and then consolidate our BSL vocabulary before finishing the session.

This course is good for anyone who wants to…

- learn, develop and extend their BSL skills

- create a delicious dish for yourself and/or your family

- develop your cooking skills

- have fun

Each recipe will be easy to follow and easy to make.

Some BSL knowledge is an advantage but not essential.

This course is for beginners.

Don’t worry if you’ve never done anything like this before as you will be guided and supported by an experienced WEA tutor.
