COOKING UP A STORM is the Social Conscience of our restaurant. We truly believe in influencing and supporting our community, our city and our country through simple and practical projects.

Much like following a recipe we believe in a step-by-step approach to do what we can to make a difference in peoples lives.


All profits from the restaurant will go towards funding our projects and currently we will be piloting the following projects over the next coming months:

  • Workplace & job training for school leavers and individuals with barriers to work
  • "Meal Banks" where we invite families and individuals facing financial hardship to complimentary dine with us
  • Cookery classes for single parent families wishing to learn how to cook inspiring healthy & nutritious food on a budget
  • Cookery classes for individuals diagnosed with food related health conditions such as diabetes or food allergens


We would love to hear from you if you or anyone you know would benefit from our projects. Do get in touch at kiltedlobster@yahoo.co.uk or like us on Facebook/CookingUpaStorm
