Saturday Skills Kitchen - Pastry Workshop

Saturday 5th October 13:00 at Festival Hub - Cathedral Gardens, M4 3BG Price: Free

1pm with Lee Wakeham from H.M. Pasties

H.M Pasties in Droylsden is one of Manchester’s great culinary success stories with a fascinating back story. Founder Lee’s entire staff consists of ex-prisoners. He knows the importance of a second chance – after an abusive upbringing he himself had twice been jailed by the age of 19. On his release he turned his life around and now he’s helping others do the same as an employment coach for the charity Groundwork, which helped him launch the pasty project in 2018. Staff earn a living wage while they develop cookery and customer service skills, as well as working towards food hygiene qualifications and a possible future in the catering trade. Oh, and the crimped Cornish-style pasties taste pretty damn good along with steak and jerk chicken bakes.
