Eat Well Live Well is Age UK Barnet's programme to improve the health and diet of older people in Barnet as well as tackle social isolation. We offer fun and healthy cookery courses around the borough for older men and women who want to pick up some kitchen skills

Our latest cookery courses 

COVID-19 UPDATE: We have suspended our face to face cookery classes at this time but we have started online cookery sessions on Zoom. Click here for more info.

We will also be putting up easy fun cookery demos made by some of our volunteers...


When sessions are running normally, we have a range of cookery courses to suit all tastes and experience, from beginners courses to healthy eating, Indian cookery to vegetarian cuisine. We also have more advanced workshops and a male-only cookery club.
Courses range from £5 a session to £7.50 a session, which reflects the amount and type of ingredients we use. All ingredients are provided.
