Ready to Cook


Have you ever wanted to have a few friends over for dinner, but not known where to start? If you want to impress all your friends and family with your cooking skills then Ready to Cook will give you everything you need to know.

Ready to Cook is presented in the style of a TV game show where contestants take part to plan, prepare and present a meal. The  course is both informal and lively and will help you to make good decisions when planning and preparing meals, but it also aims to develop some personal learning and thinking skills.

The course has a cast of characters that appear throughout. A game show host explains the challenges and leads the learner through the tasks, providing encouragement and reassurance at every step.

Three judges are on hand to pass comment on each contestant¿s skills and offer advice as to how they can improve. Each judge focuses on two specific areas of the personal learning and thinking skills.
