What will I be doing on this course? Learn how to select and read recipes from a range of sources that you might find at home (e.g. in recipe books, on the computer). Build confidence choosing and using appropriate utensils and equipment. Learn how to ‘substitute’ common ingredients to make a recipe ‘work’. What should I be able to do by the end?
