Ellie has loved it! She enjoys going and when I pick her up it’s like someone has pressed the “reset” button and she’s relaxed, happy, confident. (Please don’t tell her I said this- she’ll be mortified!!) She said you’re very nice and approachable and I can tell she feels very comfortable around you (mega compliment from my daughter who takes her time “sussing people out”!). I can tell her confidence has grown in the kitchen and i can tell making/baking things at home is making her think more about food, healthy eating etc. The “downside” is that she notices when I don’t cook fresh/from scratch! She really enjoys cooking and baking and helping her brothers w baking. I think it’s such a good “therapy” too for teenagers at this day and age. The more time she can spend baking and cooking, the better it is as far as I’m concerned. It’s a long email but I think you should know how positive this whole cooking experience with toy has been for her and I’m already thinking on how I can keep her in this cooking “atmosphere”!!

Thank you very much for the great fun I had and skills I learnt. It has helped me out a lot at home and was possibly one of the best decisions I have made. Thanks again Freddie

D of E Moving On Course Autumn 2017

Duke of Edinburgh

Dear Be, Thank you for your email and I just wanted to say how much Jasmine is enjoying the Moving On course! She really enjoys making the recipes at home and they are such that she is able to achieve excellent results whilst working independently. This has boosted Jasmine's confidence in the kitchen tremendously and has also taught her the importance of preparation ( and indeed clearing up afterwards ! ???? ) So a big thanks to you, Be ! I would love to see a copy of the report which you send to DofE if that's at all possible ? Anyway, Jasmine is very much looking forward to the next session. Kind regards, Jil Taylor

Hi there, Thanks for the update. Aimee is thoroughly enjoying the course, as are we..we look fwd to seeing what goodies she brings home eack week! Our favourites so far are the cornish pasty and the coleslaw last night was a definite winner. This is great as Aimee has sometimes been a fussy eater. In fact she had never eaten coleslaw before but is now planning to make it again very soon. She is gaining confidence with her knife skills too and quite often decides to bake/cook in her spare time at home which is a really lovely way for her to relax inbetween studying for her GCSEs. She has filled in her evaluation sheets and taken pictures of everything shes done at home, although she does need to print these out. So..in summary all great! Thanks for everything so far. Rachel Wilson.
