Improving cooking skills is an important part of improving diet and health. Cooking skills help people to eat a healthier diet. Being able to cook a tasty healthy meal cheaply is especially important for people or households on a low income or households at risk of food poverty.
Cooking clubs and training courses are a way to learn new skills, gain qualifications and to promote cooking as a job and career.
