Cooking Classes for Parents from Ethnic Groups

Organisation : Dr Bell's Family Centre
Grant Amount : £ 12,566
Project Dates : September 2015 to October 2016

The project would develop and expand on our successful piloting of cooking classes for Asian and Chinese women in Leith.

We were approached separately by both communities who wished to learn western cooking. They feel pressure from their children and wider families to vary their home cooking away from their traditional Asian and Chinese cooking. They also feel isolated from the wider Scottish community and have found this a way of gaining the confidence to expand their horizons.
