On Thursday evening, Cracking Cook Kim from Islington Mill Cafe took the first of six weekly community classes at The Angel Centre, alongside Salford-based Social adVentures. Cracking Good Food are collaborating with Social adVentures to offer healthy cookery sessions to bring positive change to the local community. On Thursday, Kim showed the group how to make three types of pasta sauce - roast pepper and basil, putanesca and arrabiata - and also a feta and bean salad. All the dishes were very quick, simple and cheap to make, but all totally delicious.
Social adVentures is an exciting social enterprise that aims to support all local people to lead happier and healthier lives, and the group provides a massive range of activities, courses and events all year round. They define happiness as enjoyment of a full and meaningful life and health as a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing. The cookery classes form part of Social adVentures' social prescribing scheme, which aims to get individuals into activities to support them to improve their health and happiness. People attending are referred by their GP, Social Prescribing Navigator or by self-referral. The classes run for six weeks until 8 March 2012.
