Men's Cooking Courses 

~ Are you a male Carer?

~ Want to increase your confidence in the kitchen?

~ Want to learn how to make easy, delicious, home- cooked meals from scratch?

~ Then come and join us in a fun, relaxed, interactive environment and learn some tasty new skills!

Men's cooking courses run once a week for six weeks, 11:00am - 2.00pm. Each week you will prepare a 2-course meal which you can then share with the other men in your group. Courses can be held throughout the region - talk to us to see what we can organise in your area.

If you are recently widowed, or your partner has been admitted into a care facility, you are also eligible to enrol in the Men’s Cooking course. We also have ongoing Men’s Cooking Groups, where participants can continue to meet on a monthly basis and expand their repertoire!

New Carers are also welcome to join the monthly sessions.

Bookings are essential.  Call us now on 9462 9488 to find out more.
