Cooking with a testimony
Yes Chef Experience
Scripture Union volunteer Peter got involved with crime for the first time aged just 10, committing a robbery with a gang in Toxteth, Liverpool.
It was to be the start of more than two decades of criminal behaviour and gang violence. It was in a drug rehabilitation centre during one of his prison sentences that Peter first came into contact with Christians. But it was an Alpha course, while on remand as a Category A prisoner, that started him on a path towards repentance and transformation.
Now a trained chef and married with two young children, Peter has developed a project we call ‘The Yes Chef Experience’ – short cookery courses in schools around Merseyside, working with small groups, passing on cookery skills and exploring the whole area of choices and consequences with teenagers.
