The The University of

Cumbria is teaming up

with 2019 MasterChef

champion Irini

Tzortzoglou to offer its

students an exclusive cookery class

series. Uni.Yum is a series of six free

sessions where the chef presents a

45-minute session every week from

the kitchen of her home in south

Cumbria. Sessions will range from

cookery basics to nutritional elements,

such as carbohydrates, proteins and

fats. Students will be invited to create

dishes in real time with Tzortzoglou

and join in live and interactive Q&As.

The scheme aims to help students at

University of Cumbria to learn to cook

satisfying and nutritious meals for

themselves and others, on a budget,

using basic ingredients and equipment.

They will gain valuable culinary skills and

knowledge, not only helping break up

the time spent at home during lockdown

but also preparing them for life beyond

graduation.

Cretan-born Tzortzoglou says, "I am

looking forward to sharing my cooking

knowledge, tips and tricks. These are

no ordinary cookery classes as Uni.

Yum will include advice on shopping as

well as cooking, and on eating mindfully.

We are aiming for a healthy and happy

time on campus - and beyond - while

increasing the confidence and creativity

of the students. Uni.Yum is also going

to break up time studying and being at

home during lockdown. Eating food is

often meant to be a shared experience.

I hope this will give University of Cumbria

students across the country a chance to

Masterchef 2017 winner,

Irini Tzortzoglou, and one of

her simple dishes.

FOOD

REPORT

Master Chef champion Irini Tzortzoglou has been cooking up

life lessons at the University of Cumbria

(or Yumbria, as it's being called).

Studying for success in life

cook dishes for loved ones and others

where that is possible."

Dr Signy Henderson, Dean for Student

Success at University of Cumbria, adds:

"This is a challenging time for us all

including our students. The social aspects

of university life this year are necessarily

different with much more of a focus on

staying in and making the most of the

home environment. Therefore, it is pleasing

to see how Uni.Yum will provide students

with a creative outlet to try something

that's different and fun, expanding their

knowledge about balanced eating and

how to use good, simple ingredients to

nourish themselves and perhaps share

within their household."

And beyond

Tzortzoglou will continue to offer

knowledge in the form of short videos,

photographs and recipes through the

dedicated Instagram feed where Uni.Yum

students will be also invited to post and

put questions to the chef whenever they

need to be supported or inspired.

Passionate about the culture of her

homeland, where the food heritage goes

back thousands of years to Minoan

times, Tzortzoglou is a fervent advocate

of growing our own foods and buying

locally wherever practical. She is also a

keen supporter of growers and breeders

who engage in ethical and responsible

practices and use foodstuffs offered

freely in the local countryside, being

herself a keen forager. As a trained olive oil

sommelier, she is also passionate about

the healthy and culinary benefits of extra

virgin olive oil, a fundamental pillar of the

much-touted Mediterranean diet. www.irinicooks.com
