Sheffield chef to teach families at city hospice

Have your say

St Luke’s Hospice Head Chef, Nick Wilkes, is launching a free six week cookery course aimed specifically at families facing terminal illness.

Starting on Wednesday, September 23, in the hospice kitchen, Nick and his team of chefs will be sharing the secrets of creating tasty and nutritious food in a course designed for people looking after the terminally ill or families who have recently been bereaved.

Week one will be an introduction to food safety and the following weeks will cover topics including soup and smoothie making, main course cooking, one pot cooking and crumbles and scones.

In the final week there will also be a chance to enjoy a dinner specially by Nick and his team.

“This is part of our ongoing work to provide the best possible support to families at St Luke’s,” said hospice Volunteer Development Manager Tracy Raybould.

“Whether you just need a bit of a refresher, or if you’re a complete beginner in the kitchen, Nick and his team are here to show you how to create simple, tasty and nutritious meals that everyone will love.”
