Slow Cooker Course


Our slow cooker course has come to a close after 6 meals and 6 weeks! We had a fantastic time and our participants really enjoyed cooking the creative dishes our education team, nutritionists and professional chefs designed.


We gave everyone the chance to gain some confidence in their cookery skills and increase their knowledge around healthy eating and food waste. People learnt practical skills with our online live cook-a-long sessions taught by our chef. Our in-house nutritionist also gave out helpful healthy eating advice as well as some great food waste tips. We delivered a slow cooker to everyone who participated to use at home and cook our super simple recipes with.


"My slow cooker is the best thing since sliced bread so thank you Jo and UKHarvest."


"On the course I learnt how to make better food choices for managing my diabetes, and have since made a lovely sausage casserole. It was yummy! I love my slow cooker as I can cook healthy meals and get lots of veg as well."


The feedback on this course and our recipes has been amazing, our team has loved hearing about everybody’s experience and how good their dinners tasted! We want to thank everyone for participating and cooking with us.


Our six dishes we cooked together were:

  • Whole chicken 3 ways or whole cauliflower
  • Burrito bowl (veggie/bean rice dish) with salsa
  • Sausage casserole
  • Beef/veggie stew and dumplings
  • Fish/veg curry
  • Squash soup and roti bread
