My name is Marie, I'm the head chef at L'atelier des chefs cooking school. As most of us in the industry, we've been forced to cease activities for the foreseeable future due to coronavirus social distancing, but right now is the time when our skills and goodwill are needed the most.
I'm currently supporting the people's army Islington project to provide meals to those in need (vulnerable, elderly, homeless) whilst also teaching and spreading knowledge and ideas for those who remain at home as well.
Based on people's donations (either ingredients or funds to source them) I'll be cooking a different recipe from around the world each week, which we'll stream and record as a masterclass for anyone who wants to watch and learn or improve their cooking skills.
Each recipe and ingredients will be advertised the week before and prepared on Saturday so you can cook along or just watch and have fun.
Please donate whatever you can so we can continue helping those in need and at the same time, creating activities to bring us closer together through cooking despite being isolated. Our aim is to reach 150 meals each Saturday but the more donations we get, the more people we can feed during these hard times.

Thanks for your support!
