Virtual fundraiser with Sofia, 2021 Masterchef contestant

Demand for mental health services in the last three months has doubled with loneliness being one of the key contributing factors to poor mental health. To try and meet this growing need, three local Minds have come together to provide the ultimate fundraiser… a virtual Italian cook-along with Sofia, 2021 MasterChef contestant!

Hertfordshire Mind Network, MindBLMK and Mind in Mid Herts have partnered up with professional local chef and participant of the new MasterChef series, Sofia, to provide a virtual authentic Italian cook-a-long.

Learn how to cook a delicious Italian risotto!

On 18th March Sofia will be live and helping you to cook your very own Butternut Squash Risotto with Crispy Sage along with a tasty dessert, Vanilla Gelato, and on 25th March we will be coming together to create Porcini Mushroom Risotto and Chocolate Gelato, which you can enjoy yourself or with the family.  

Whether you are a MasterChef fan, want to learn how to make some authentic Italian food while connecting with others, would like to suprise your Mum this Mother's Day or just want to take part to support better mental health, this is the fundraiser for you!

How to sign up:

There will be two cook-along dates: Thursday 18th March and Thursday 25th March both starting at 6:30pm. There is a minimum donation charge of £17.50 (per event) to take part and you will be provided with a welcome pack which includes the ingredients required to cook the dishes. All money raised will go back into supporting the people from the Home Counties with their mental health.
