Cooking for One Videos

Cooking for One has been a popular feature in Brendoncare’s clubs for several years. Run by a team of volunteers, and kindly supported by Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation, the aim of the sessions is to demonstrate a series of simple recipes, using basic ingredients, in small portions that can easily be cooked at home.

While Brendoncare’s clubs have been unable to meet, volunteer David Higgins has been creating a series of video demonstrations, which have been shared on Brendoncare’s Facebook page. Here are links to the videos which have been shown so far, along with cook-along at home instructions that can be downloaded and printed any time.

If you have a favourite recipe that you would like David to share, please email us here.
