DofE Courses & Cooking for Uni



We are fully approved activity providers of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award residential courses and our fantastic 5-day residential courses give students skills and confidence to cook healthy delicious food for life. Each day is dedicated to food suited to a student budget and covers fish, meat, vegetables, pasta, rice, puddings, bread, biscuits and cakes.

The courses are true confidence and team building experience with small classes working in a stunning kitchen with a high ratio of tutors to students. Our location means all the historical, cultural and leisure offers of our world renown city is there for students to enjoy. The course includes fun evening activities ranging from Treasure Hunts around historical Cambridge to cycle picnics and bowling. These are compulsory for DofE participants and optional for, and open to, all students opting to do the residential package.

For DofE Gold award students our Homerton College residential package is compulsory.

For all other students residential is optional – see below other options for accommodation as alternatives to our residential package which puts students in Homerton college next door to us.

Each day includes breakfast, elevenses, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner and students will not need any additional meals.
