History of Adaptive Cooking

Brenda Ryan has been active in the disabled community for a number of years.  But a few years ago Brenda became aware of a lack of services for persons with disabilities to learn about cooking, nutrition and how to survive on a modest budget.  So she instinctively called upon her friends to collaborate with her to develop an Adaptive Cooking program. 

The City of London believed in their idea and provided a small budget to try a few classes.  Nick Gucanin Gazibaric, Executive Chef at the Best Western Lamplighter Inn also believed in the idea of the class and jumped right in to help. Immediately our classes were full with a waiting list of hopefuls for the next round of classes.  

Learn About Our Classes

There are three Class levels available so anyone can learn something from the experience in the classroom.

That was back in 2011 and the enthusiasm and excitement continue today for our participants, people waiting their turn to learn new skills, have fun along with others who share their interest.

Recently a new Chef has joined the program. Michael Thorogood who is also an Executive Chef at the Best Western Lamplighter Inn, has enjoyed sharing the class with our gung-ho students.    

We have support volunteers for every class.  They are homemakers, University students in the Nutrition and Dieticians programs along with other committed and caring people.

There are no other classes like this in Canada.  We are a new beginning for individuals who have always felt it couldn’t be done.

The most important element of the program is the understanding that there is no paid staff.    Each person involved from the Executive Chefs, the Nutritionists, the Administrators and Occupational Therapists are Volunteers.  The Best Western has been an outstanding community business in their support and dedication to the program. 

We were built from a dream and continue through the kindness of others.
