Ready Steady Cook

Sheffield based youth charity Endeavour is this week unveiling its brand new teaching kitchen at their headquarters in Fir Vale.

The kitchen features eight stations with hobs and ovens, plus an extra at the front for an instructor. It will be used to teach catering qualifications and independent living skills to disadvantaged young people from across South Yorkshire, as well as providing a space for catering social enterprise.

The charity will also be able to use the kitchen to host corporate volunteer days with a difference, with volunteers cooking alongside learners, and for future fundraising events such as the Great Endeavour Bake Off (watch this space!)

Patrick Callingham, Head of Education at Endeavour said: “The teaching kitchen will be really important to us for teaching skills for life to our learners and helping them get qualifications. It’s also the best looking room in the building!”

Endeavour are also running an online fundraising campaign to help them to deliver sessions in the brand new kitchen, to cover the costs of food, specialist tutors and qualifications.
