Physical Disability cooking classes  2024

My Home Chef

Now offers a unique program for young adults with special needs and disabilities.

In this program the young adults will be able to learn a life skill, gain confidence, independence, and get involved with their family day to day. 

The "one on one" cooking lessons will improve their motoric, social, numeracy and literacy skills. At those lessons they will learn how to read and understand a recipe, safety in the kitchen,Knife skills, different methods of cooking and baking, exploring spices and herbs and different ingredients.

They will learn new recipes from different cuisines.

As each young adult is unique the lesson will be structured and developed to fit his or hers pace and ability. 


Class info 

The sessions are 1.5 to 2 hours long and include health and safety in the kitchen, knife skills and different methods of cooking and baking. 

The classes work "around" the level and ability of the student and are planned to give confidence and independence and a great start of a professional pathway in hospitality.


The classes are 'One on One' and go for the whole term. 

We had great success with our students.The progress and their enjoyment are showing  at their amazing creations in the kitchen.

The students can take all the food home and as the quality of ingredients is high it's usually enough for 2-4 people to enjoy  (yay no need to cook dinner ! ) :)

"My 21 year old son, who is autistic, has always loved food and cooking, so when I discovered the Rolleston-based cookery school, My Home Chef, I was delighted. Rita and her team provide one-to-one lessons for a range of student abilities, embracing healthy, fun and practical recipes that are useful for teaching independence in the kitchen. This includes meal preparation, cooking and baking and practical skills like washing up and food hygiene. Aron has been a student of My Home Chef for two years and I cannot recommend it highly enough, not to mention the fact that we get to taste the amazing food he creates!"
