Cooking for One volunteer David Higgins has been creating home cooking videos during lockdown. Here are links to all of the videos and recipes.

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. Those attending the sessions in our clubs have the added benefit of being able to taste the recipes as well!

During the Covid-19 pandemic, 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 main Facebook page. Here are links to the videos which have been shown so far, along with recipe sheets that can be downloaded and printed at home.

If you have a favourite recipe that you would like David to share in the future, please email communications@brendoncare.org.uk to let us know.
