Bags of Taste was founded by Alicia Weston in 2014, taking a new approach to cooking courses for people on low budgets.
We are excited to be running the innovative project in Tower Hamlets.
Bags of Taste is focused on showing you how to cook tasty and nutritious meals for under £1 a portion. Each class looks at a different recipe from around the world, where you are given the opportunity to cook and eat it for yourself, after a demonstration.
Afterwards, you can buy bags of recipe ingredients for just £3. Enough to make two healthy meals for two people at home.
"Now I am cooking at home more than I ever did. This has really given me confidence and inspired me."

What makes Bags of Taste different?
Having an opportunity to take home each recipe's ingredients motivates you to have another go, reinforcing cooking skills and the idea that it doesn't have to be complicated or expensive. On top of this, you'll be given advice on where to source the cheapest and best ingredients in your area.
Volunteers are central to the running of our sessions. It's a fantastic opportunity to join a small team, support the sessions and ensure that everyone goes away feeling more confident in their cooking.
We're looking for friendly and encouraging individuals, who enjoy their cooking and would like to get involved in an exciting new project for Tower Hamlets.
