Goody offers 1,000 girls cooking skills
Jeddah, June 11, 2009
Goody Cooking Academy has concluded a massive training program in which 1,000 young female students in Jeddah learned creative cooking skills over a one year period.
The ‘Goody Cooking Academy Initiative’ forms part of Goody's community relations program which offered the program for free, and was established to enhance young Saudi females’ cooking skills and enable them to be creative in the kitchen, said a statement.
The initiative was conducted in collaboration with Al-Fanar Training Center. Each course consisted of training on preparation of a variety of innovative dishes from different countries by a group of professional and highly skilled lady chefs. The course, as well, included training on preparation of appetizers, main dishes, desserts and juices. Each training course was held for a period of five days a week for two hours a day.
Maha Al-Mojadidi, associate marketing manager at Goody, said: "This initiative is part of a series of initiatives that have been launched by "Goody", and aims to serve the community. And although the program was for women, it also benefitted other members of the community, including children who experienced both learning and fun in our special cooking courses that taught them how to prepare simple foods such as jelly or a peanut better sandwich."
She added: “Next year Goody will work on the expansion of this initiative to cover other cities in Saudi Arabia such as Riyadh, Dammam, Abha and Madinah, to train 5,000 female students."
Goody also organized cooking training courses for low-income families to teach them how to cook properly and how to prepare sweets to enable them to make their own living and live a dignified life. – TradeArabia News Service
