Do you have plan managed NDIS funding? If so In My Own Kitchen can provide cooking classes or meal preparation in your home
Classes are designed to increase your independence, explore your favourite foods and make meal preparation easy with accessible recipes, adjusted methods, packaged foods to suit personal preference and needs and ultimately have fun!
Group social/respite classes may also be arranged - for these please contact Luisa for details
Meal preparation is designed for those wanting fresh meals made in home on a weekly or fortnightly basis. This allows you to have more food freedom in what you would like to eat without the stress of having to cook it yourself if that really isn't your thing
How can I help you?
Cooking in your kitchen
Here’s how it works:
We discuss your needs and accessibility options
We look at what utensils you have in your home
We discuss your budget and the meals you like
I come to you and we cook the meal together
You learn a delicious meal and enjoy it or make enough to put some away in the freezer for later!
Prefer meals prepared for you? In home meal preparation can be arranged with a minimum 2 hour booking
accessibility as the focus
Cooking with ease
By having me at your side you can learn at your own pace. No confusing recipes, no having to work out how to adjust it, no ingredients you have never heard of. Just good food made simple
Here's how it works:
I make sure the recipe has simple instructions that are easy to follow
Recipes may have visual guides for instructions depending on participants needs
Recipes based on foods you enjoy so you enjoy cooking them!
Utensils that assist in the preparation as required such as blenders, safety knives, scissors, food choppers and non slip mixing bowls. All utensils required are considered so you can cook with confidence
Short lessons - designed to keep interest, not tire you out and be suitable for a weekday meal
How do I pay you?
As In My Own Kitchen is not a NDIS registered provider I can only work with participants on a plan managed fund
Ongoing lesson and meal preparation bookings require a minimum 4 session commitment. This ensures we are able to create a skill set for you and explore a range of dishes and ideas. Your first session is considered a trial to ensure we are the right fit and from there I provide a service agreement which ensures we can arrange lessons in line with your own personal funding for activities. If after the first lesson you don't wish to continue, you just need to inform me in writing to release the booking time.
Casual classes are able to be booked subject to availability.
For payment I invoice your plan manager. My lessons are invoiced to the maximum cap for NDIS funding to bring it in line with my standard lesson costs. Ingredients are invoiced separately if you wish me to provide them.
Common funding used for cooking classes has been allocated under:
01_011_0107_1_1 assistance with self-care activities weekday
Please get in touch to discuss your interest and we can create a lesson plan to suit
From December 2023 there is Mon-Wed availability for bookings
From April 2024, In My Own Kitchen is providing a 6 week block of small group classes held at Toombul Shire Hall. The facility is wheelchair accessible, air conditioned and spacious.
