YOUNG people at Derian House Children’s Hospice enjoyed a flavour of independence when they road-tested the new recipe kits from supermarket Booths.
Youngsters, who use the services at the Chorley-based charity, got creative in the kitchen to tackle the red pepper, tomato and mozzarella pasta bake – thanks to a kind donation from friends at Booths supermarket.
“We had a brilliant afternoon using the recipe kits,” said Shelley Baron, Transition Support Worker at Derian House.
“The guys did it all themselves, taking it in turns reading the simple instructions and making the food. It smelt amazing and they enjoyed tucking in all the more after their hard work.
“An important part of our work at Derian House Children’s Hospice is to work with young adults with life-limiting conditions to equip them with the life skills they need to ensure they can live as independently as possible, and this was a really fun way of learning to cook.”
Booths recently launched the Let’s Cook recipe boxes, which include fresh ingredients in the correct portion size and easy to follow step-by-step instructions.
Kate Rathbone, Booths Product Developer, said: “For those looking for a new flavourful recipe to liven up their usual tea time routine, or someone looking to learn to scratch cook, these recipe boxes are ideal. We’ve created a range of recipe kits that include classic family favourites to adventurous cuisines. Our recipe boxes will be refreshed regularly in store to keep bringing you new and exciting dishes to try.”
