Our Duke of Edinburgh Residential Course is the perfect way to complete your DofE Gold Residential.
What separates us from the rest? We are a family run school with an emphasis of teaching our students about food rather than merely following a recipe. We put the fun back into cooking!
We are a Duke of Edinburgh AAP (Approved Activity Provider) and have been running these courses since 2004 so have the knowledge and experience to teach the beginnings of cooking to those that need to learn.
Can’t boil an egg? No problem! Can already cook? Come and break those bad habits and pick up tips and tricks that will make cooking that bit easier and more enjoyable.
We put an emphasis on affordable home cooking and teaching students how to avoid wastage – great tips for young living at uni or moving out of home.
On the Thursday we have a wine tasting, followed by our famous dinner party where students have the option to invite their friends/family to show off their new found skills and to put cooking for numbers into reality.
For accommodation, numbers depending, students will stay at The Avenue family residence just 5 minutes from the school or a family run B&B that The Avenue work closely with. Rooms will be male or female shared rooms or private rooms (numbers depending).
Evening activities will be anything from tennis to bowling or snuggling up with popcorn for a movie night.
By the end of the course you will leave knowing more than you would have thought possible as well as having made friends for life with both students and The Avenue family.
