Last month we introduced you to Charlie, one of our Post-19 students, in his first blog. He has a passion for food and cooking that he hopes to take into a future career.
Currently, only 22% of autistic adults are in any form of employment¹, a statistic that we’re working to change. In our services, learners work with our Specialist Vocational Advisor building employability skills and accessing work experience placements to prepare for their future. We have also created a toolkit for individuals and employers that seeks to give autistic people improved access to, and support in, employment.
Charlie has ambitions of being a chef and loves making and talking about food. He wanted to set up his blog to share his recipes and spread his passion. With Christmas just around the corner, read on to find a recipe for a great little stocking filler!
Welcome to my 2nd blog, in this post I’ll be making chocolate fudge. I came across this recipe when I visited Windsor 5 years ago. This was on a menu where I was staying and since then I’ve always been interested in trying to make it but never had the chance to.
I have chosen this recipe, as I like chocolate and I was inspired from my trip to Windsor. I also have a passion for cooking and wanted to challenge myself to make something I’ve never made before.
Hi there, my name is Charlie. I have autism, and I am very enthusiastic about cooking and food. I like cooking because I have always loved food ever since I was a small boy in the 2000s.
I have had many years of experience in restaurants and street food businesses. From sushi, grilled meat and pasta to even Turkish style kebabs.
I want to write this blog to show my progress and footsteps into the world and seek new food adventures.
