Cooking with Mama is a social enterprise and cookery school in London. It aims to create meaningful culinary experiences for participants to savour different cultures through its food while learning traditional recipes from our mamas.
But it is not just about uncovering the secrets of authentic home cooking! Using food as an instrument for social change, Cooking With Mama aims to empower women, who have mastered intricate home cooking skills, with confidence and work readiness skills to reach their highest potential. This is achieved by providing Mamas with training and paid opportunities to lead cookery classes in the community.
Cooking with Mama is the only cookery school of its kind as it works with home-chefs from cultures around the world to lead its cooking classes while bringing the community together through food, fostering cultural understanding, and supporting skill development for women. Class participants are also able to tap on Mama’s cooking secrets and recipes, which have typically only been passed through family generations.
