Dev Catering1This course is very practical and it teaches students how to plan a meal,  select  their ingredients, prepare and cook healthy menus.   Students learn the importance of healthy eating and what makes up a balanced diet; we use quizzes and puzzles to add to the variety of learning approaches.

Many of the fresh vegetables and herbs we use in our kitchen are grown in our own gardens at Scotts and students also go out to buy other ingredients from local shops in Tonbridge and elsewhere.

Students learn about food hygiene and kitchen safety and also have the chance to work towards a Certificate in Food Hygiene.

Students cook hot meals for lunch on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and also run a lunch box service on Wednesdays. Cakes and preserves are made for sale and to serve  in our coffee shop on Wednesday mornings as well as for functions held at Scotts. Students have the satisfaction of contributing to a healthy lifestyle at Scotts  as well as learning many practical life skills themselves.

This course will help students to develop important skills and give them greater independence, including:
