In May, ResLife hosted sessions of 'Cooking hacks with Ollie' for three consecutive weeks. These fun, casual cooking sessions left me with loads of new ideas, little tips and tricks and moreover an appreciation for cooking and sharing meals with other people.
We'd start with a short introduction to what we were making that evening, and gather round the front to watch Ollie explain a step of the procedure, which we'd then try out ourselves once back at our tables.
Eating together after spending time cooking was another nice experience. By the second class, we learnt to bring tupperware for the extra food we couldn't quite finish in one meal (safe to say the next day's lunch was sorted and looked forward to).
Looking back now, I made some surprisingly fond memories of the warm tubs of soapy water and getting help putting on aprons (that were always a bit too big for tiny me 😅).
It's always nice seeing how the attendees try modifications of the dishes we learnt at home. I'd definitely be up to do something like this again, given the chance.
