Cookery course for men

Age UK Norfolk and the Joy of Food are holding a free, 4 week cookery course at the Acle War Memorial Recreation Centre & Social Club.

The cookery course (Kitchen Kings) is designed for men over 55 years of age who previously may not have had a role in the kitchen at home and who have now become carers for their partners or widowers, or men who simply have never learned to cook and are now taking an interest.

The course teaches basic cookery skills and recipes, the focus being dishes that are simple to prepare and don’t cost a fortune. Groups are kept small to ensure beginner cooks have a supportive environment in which to learn.

The course is free and all equipment and ingredients are provided.

Details of the course and how to sign up are in the attached pdf.
