Cookery skills class held in Harold Hill for adults with learning disabilities

Residents at a care home for adults with learning disabilities were treated to a cookery class as part of a Love Food, Hate Waste campaign.

Newstead House, in Troopers Drive, Harold Hill, invited three top chefs to teach them how to prepare quick, healthy meals on a budget and reduce waste.

Robert Barham, Mark Borrell and David Borrell who taught them the skills have prepared food for celebrities including Bill Clinton and the Queen.

Joanna Mcintyre, activities coordinator at the home, said: “We encourage all of our residents in Newstead House to gain new skills through our training programmes to help them live more independently.

“Love Food, Hate Waste is an excellent campaign which has taught our residents how to cook healthy and nutritional meals in minutes”.
