DofE Skills

The very popular Duke of Edinburgh Cookery Skills Course!

3 Month DoE Cookery Skills Course, suitable for 3 month Bronze,  Silver Award or part of the Gold,  Please contact me for the 6 month Gold Cookery Skills Course, as you will need to undertake another Option, as well as 2 independent studies.

Exciting recipes and a very wide range of techniques and flavours covered in 3 12 week Options, including Plant Based. Learn this important life skill to aid independence and self sufficiency!

I will act as the Assessor and submit the Report, though please do check with your DofE Leader to ensure that this activity counts towards your Award Skills section before booking.




12 week sessions can be completed either:

  •  Via weekly interactive Live Zoom sessions, which are Cook-Along style with the opportunity to ask questions and for me to assist with any difficulties. If any sessions are missed, then the recording will be sent so that session can be made up.
  • Weekly pre-recorded Cook-Alongs for you to follow at home in your own timeframe, with photographic evidence sent to me. A welcome/introductory video is sent before the session commences.

Recipe, ingredient and equipment list will be sent to both participant and parent/legal guardian weekly in advance. This is a great opportunity for participants to take responsibility for organising, attending and submitting all that is required for each session. Another useful life skill.


Most food preferences are accommodated, with alternatives suggested. Please note that a Participant’s Form will need to be satisfactorily completed before a session can begin.

A minimum of 5 participants are required for the Zoom sessions to run. Otherwise, you can be transferred to the pre-recorded sessions for that Option.
