HAIL Mental Health Tenancy Sustainment Worker, Orla Reynolds, has been doing virtual cooking lessons to help tenants through the COVID-19 lockdown.

Each week she sends a recipe to try out. Orla then calls to give instructions over the phone or web.  

“So far we’ve done spaghetti bolognaise and omelettes. This week we are doing stew” explained Orla. “It’s a bit of fun and it’s good to pass the time by learning a new skill.”

 “Before this I used to eat out a lot in a local café” says HAIL tenant Marie from south Dublin. I’m delighted with myself and it really helps to have Orla talk through the recipe with me. I’d recommend anyone to give it a go.” 

“I’m really proud of myself for doing all this cooking. I never used to cook much before, so that’s one good thing to come out of all this” added Marie.
