Delivered in BSL, with live captioning and voiceover translated into English, this workshop is for everyone who needs lockdown cookery tips.

Yumma aims to educate and build people’s confidence, as well as promoting well being and reducing social isolation, as mental health in D/deaf people is proven to be one in two which is double than hearing community. This is done through all-inclusive workshops, training events, cooking lessons, and catering services for public use. Yumma's approach to cooking food is tasty, wholesome, colourful, simple and full of flavours!
