Get Cooking with Ollie

Wednesday 22 March 2023

noon - 3:30pm

Hutton Hall, College Lane

Get Cooking with Ollie

Open to Uni of Herts students with a valid ticket. Please note that tickets are non-refundable, non-transferable and non-exchangeable. View the full Terms & Conditions here



Pop down to Union Square for a live cooking demonstration with Ollie Tarrent, a cooking entrepreneur. 


One thing we know is that students can often struggle when it comes to cooking at university. Whether that is because of lack of confidence or simply the busy student lifestyle gets in the way, people can often end up grabbing pricy convenience food. We want to encourage students to cook and so Ollie will be demonstrating how to cook quick and easy, low cost meals.


Ollie will be running 3 live demonstrations throughout the day and you can pop by to whichever one takes your fancy! Each demonstration, you will be able to ask Ollie questions as he cooks the dish and sample his food at the end! 




What are the 3 recipes Ollie will be cooking?

12:00-1pm - Singapore Noodles

1:15-2:15pm - Brocolli and Chilli Pasta

2:30 - 3:30pm - Red Pepper Gnocchi and Broccoli


Do I need a ticket?

No! Just pop by for some cooking tips and some tasty samples!  


Can I have a go at cooking the recipes?

This session is a live demonstration and will not involve you cooking. If you want to have a go at the recipe that Ollie is cooking, pre-order your discounted Herts Fresh (pre-portioned ingredients), grab a recipe card and have a try at home!


What is Herts Fresh?

Herts Fresh is similar to Gousto or Hello Fresh where you can pre-order a dish, collect your pre-portioned ingredients, grab a recipe card and recreate at home! You can find out more about Herts Fresh here!



Not based on this campus? Not to worry. Did you know we have a shuttle bus that takes you between College Lane Campus and de Havilland Campus and it's completely free!
