Theo cooks up a feast

Theo has a passion for cooking and is always keen to try something new.

Says Theo, “I enjoy cooking. We go shopping, choose the recipe and start cooking. It’s fun”.

Theo has tried a wide range of recipes of his choosing since he began learning to cook with The Support People.  We have supported Theo to try a variety of dishes – risotto, omelets, steak and vegetarian lasagna. And some yummy desserts too – rhubarb pie and pancakes.

For participants like Theo who can’t cook in their own home, we utilise the fully equipped kitchen at the Alfredton Sports & Community Club in Ballarat.  We also work with people in their home using their own kitchen facilities.

Our participants love planning their menu, shopping for the ingredients, and following the recipe to prepare food of their choosing. And feeling proud when they achieve a new cooking skill.
