You Can Cook [Community Interest Company]

The project is based in Peebles, Scottish Borders and is the brainwave of new and upcoming social entrepreneur Bosco Santimano. The company will offer a wide range of services tailor made for each and every client group. Through the project essentials skills, knowledge and training will be provided on the basics of cooking i.e. how to cook quick and easy meals for you and the family, with particular emphasis on healthy eating. Specialist cookery classes will be offered for client groups with specific health conditions eg. Diabetics, allergies, stroke patients etc. We will provide general health information through our services on food issues. Budgeting skills will be offered as part of the training/course to anyone interested in finding out how to save money and eat healthy! 
We will conduct Cookery classes/demonstrations/workshops in a wide range of International cuisines. Our services are available throughout Scotland.

The company was officially incorporated on the 26th October 2007. The complete process took me 8 months thanks to a few individuals and Scotland unLtd who were supportive and encouraged me all the way. After careful research into the various options, we chose the CIC format because it provided us with all the necessary protection from a legal and ethical point of view. I wish to add that forming a CIC is easy and there is lots of support from the CIC Regulator. The only expenses incurred by me were 35 as fees and NO Lawyers Fees!!!!

A special thanks to Senscot for organising the event in November'07 at New Lanark. It was the first time for us to be at the event and we managed to get a few enquiries due to the opportunity to network with other likeminded companies and groups. The response has been overwhelming and we greatly appreciate all the feedback and suggestions.
