What’s your earliest food memory? Was it baking with Nan or did your parents pass on family recipes? Often I find myself peeling an apple just the way Mum taught me as a little girl, or making one of my dad’s famous omelettes.
Developing cooking skills at an earlier age does far more than equip children for when it’s finally time to move out. New research suggests that confident young cooks make healthier adults, and eat more veg and less fast food later in life.
