Migrateful have cancelled all their cookery classes for the foreseeable future due to the coronavirus outbreak. As a small social enterprise relying almost exclusively on ticket sales this puts at risk the very existence of their organisation, and with it the support they offer to some of the most vulnerable in society.  If you enjoyed cooking these recipes, please visit www.justgiving.com and donate £5 to help to keep these chefs safe and well.
