Cooking and Eating

Are you interested in learning some new recipes, making new friends and becoming healthier to boot? 

If so, then the cookery clubs are for you! 


GCDA runs several 5-week Cookery Clubs each year throughout the borough in community venues and online that are open to all.  


The focus is on making delicious food that will inspire you to try new things at home, cook more from scratch and enjoy cooking.  The easy, affordable recipes introduce small changes that can have a big impact on your health.  Maybe it’s measuring your salt and oil, or finding easy ways to try to increase your fruit and vegetable intake, or tips and ideas to help reduce waste and save money; there’s something for everyone. 

Cookery Club Flyer Online & Face

All the ingredients and equipment are included, and participants who attend at least 4 of the 5 weeks will receive a fabulous recipe book to help them continue their journey at home. 


The clubs are all about giving you the skills and confidence to make informed choices about what you eat.  But, the best thing is that becoming healthier is just ONE of the benefits.  Once you’re there, you’ll make friends, try delicious new foods and could even become more active!
