WOW - Week 4 - Food Therapy: Cook-A-Long

Want to try out some different recipes? A complete beginner but not sure where to start?

February 4, 2021
Microsoft Teams
17:00 - 18:00

Join the Student Wellbeing Team virtually on Thursday 4 February at 5:00pm to cook your evening meal with us!

Sometimes recipes can get overcomplicated or have expensive ingredients, which is not useful for the average student meal. 

We will make one of our favourite takeaways at home! With the help of Tony & Jen, you'll learn how to make a healthy version of the popular Thai street food dish Pad Thai. We will take you through each stage step by step so you can follow along, by the end you'll basically be a masterchef!

We encourage group participation with this event, so grab your housemates and join our live stream!
