Every month, the residents of Sharrow, Sheffield get together for a cook-along.
I enjoyed the cook along experience greatly. I met some wonderful people and the sense of community and well being was brilliant.

what's your thing?
Sheffield draws students from all over the world to come and study at its universities, but sometimes it's easy for international students to get lost amongst the hustle and bustle of the city.
Yat-Fai, as part of the international student support team at Sheffield Hallam University and an international student herself, introduced monthly cooking events for everyone in Sharrow to attend, to make new friends and get cooking!
With this idea in mind Yat-Fai needed a space to accomodate her fellow cooks!
how did somewhereto_ help?
somewhereto_ were on hand to help and found Yat-Fai a large space with a kitchen and eating area for the Sharrow residents to get cooking.
"We have particularly enjoyed the themed cuisines that the cook-alongs offer. As a result, students have the chance to cook something new and learn more about the different dishes around the world. Also, the interactivity of the sessions where our students help to cook the meals with local people, really helps to build on the students' confidence and helps them to practice their English." - Yat-Fai, 25, Sheffield
