BUSY mums are continuing their journey to becoming fully-fledged cooks.

Homestart Calderdale was given a grant from the Healthy Halifax project to help teach their mums to cook.

Last year they took part in a class at the Cooking School, Dean Clough with each mum and a volunteer working together to cook basic, healthy dishes.

The mums are now getting ready to make meals in their own kitchens by cooking for Homestart staff.

Co-ordinator Linda Crowther said: “This is about sustaining the work we started at the Cooking School so we used some of the money to kit out our kitchen so it can be used by our families to build some confidence.”

Mum-of-two Louise Brown, 23, from Boothtown, made a three-course roast dinner for staff.

She said: “It’s the first time I have done anything like this. I don’t normally get time.” She was helped by volunteer Andrea Smith.
