In this series we follow the fortunes of young people as they put their kitchen skills to the test - with some humorous results! These are not instructional cookery books, but descriptions of everyday situations in which young people have to prepare simple meals themselves. The supporting activities look more closely at practical skills and safety issues around preparing hot and cold food.

Supports the ASDAN Transition Challenge and Towards Independence Life Skills courses.
