Media praise for the school
Since launching in 2012, Made In Hackney has been praised in high profile media such as Jamie, Vogue, The Observer and Vegetarian Living. And that’s where it gets really interesting. The cookery school has a local, seasonal, organic (when possible), 100% plant-based food policy. Radical stuff.
Made In Hackney have achieved acclaim by offering healthy eating focused cookery and food growing classes to groups in need including young people leaving care, low income families, people with long term health problems, recovering addicts and people with learning difficulties.

Speaking on the launch of the crowdfunder Sarah Bentley, the kitchens founder says:
“We teach people how to cook and eat food that is not just good for their health – but also the health of the planet. Everyone knows we need to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables and less processed foods, sugar and meat – but most people don’t know where to start. Many don’t even know how to cook from scratch at all and especially how to prepare vegetables in an exciting, tasty way. That’s where we come in.”
