Get Cooking with Almond

Could this be the year you get more out of cooking, and make your food go further?

We're offering Almond tenants the chance to sign up for a free six-week cookery course at the Riverside Community Wing, and learn to make meals which are cheaper, healthier - and fun once you know how!

These friendly, informal sessions are being delivered in partnership with West Lothian Council's health promotion team and Riverside Primary School.

The course will include:Cooking course

  • Hearty, Winter-warming soups
  • Family meals to satisfy everyone
  • Making your food budget go further
  • Adding more nutrients to your dishes (ever thought of adding cauliflower to your mac and cheese?)
  • Essential items for your food cupboard

Six-week courses will run on Thursdays from 9.30am-Noon. They will start on January 17 and on February 28 - but you must register to guarantee your place.

If you'd like to find out more, contact Community Engagement Officer Barbara Boertien on 01506 439 291. Or email
