Cooking good food at home on a budget

Cooking Good is a community cooking project, originally based in rural Daventry and South Northants. It was created to focus on helping families to cook, simple, tasty and healthy food from scratch.

In the current climate, we are all thinking about cooking on a budget, going out to buy food less often and making our food go further. Se whether it’s simple, low-cost meals, food storage, making the most of what you have in or how to keep the kids entertained with cooking whilst everyone is at home, we’re here for you. You never know, you may even improve your cooking skills and hopefully have some fun in the process.

Take a look at our new recipe videos on YouTube and come back soon to view some skills demonstrations.
