Five Rivers Announces New Cookery School

Five Rivers Child Care is thrilled to announce that it has acquired Flavours School of Cookery in Bournemouth.

Outside of the usual adult and children’s cookery classes on offer at Flavours, it will now also provide cookery classes to local children and young people in care. As another strand of Five Rivers’ alternative education provision, Flavours will provide an excellent base to give children the opportunity to learn how to cook, meal plan, and shop for healthy meals.  

James Hall, Head of Education at Five Rivers said: “We are very excited about this new venture. It’s a key responsibility of ours to equip children with skills that will help them to live independently when the time comes to leave our care.  

“Meal planning, shopping and cooking are important life skills and working together with other children to create something they can be proud of is really important too. We are thrilled to be able to offer this amazing space to vulnerable children who may never have had the opportunity to access this sort of learning before.” 

Head Chef, Liz Hagger, will continue in her position at Flavours and comes with a wealth of experience.

Liz Hagger, the Head Chef at Flavours said: “I have always had a passion for food, and I love the community it builds. This passion led me to a very fulfilling career in the hospitality industry. This, along with my experience as a Chef Lecturer in a College, meant Flavours School of Cookery was a natural choice for me. I am really excited about the future opportunities that working with a Social Enterprise like Five Rivers will bring to Flavours and our Community. I look forward to seeing you in the kitchen soon!”
