Jamie Oliver's Home Cooking Skills Melbourne event
Jamie Oliver was the special guest at
a breakfast to discuss his Home Cooking Skills program with
education professionals in Melbourne on Wednesday 7 March 2012 at
the Grand Hyatt Hotel.
The breakfast was hosted by Pearson
Chief Executive Officer David Barnett. Guests were invited to join
secondary teachers who have received Home Cooking Skills
training and students participating in the program as they share
their experiences and discuss the program details with Jamie.
Home Cooking Skills is an
accredited cooking program created by Jamie Oliver especially for
schools that is not only fun but easy to teach. Students develop
essential skills they need to cook simple, nutritious, affordable
food. The program is about real food, for real life and arms
students with sensible, practical knowledge they can take into the
world and use in their everyday lives. Upon completing 60 hours of
official course curriculum students are assessed and awarded a BTEC
Jamie says: 'Cooking is, without a
doubt, one of the most important things a person can ever learn.
Once someone has that knowledge, that's it - they're set for life.
To study home cooking skills is to learn how to cook great food
that tastes amazing, how to save money and, in the long run, how to
lead a happier, healthier life.'
