Man Cooking

Age UK Leicestershire and Rutland are very pleased to announce the launch of a new project.  From April 2019 we will be running 10 week courses for groups of older men with caring responsibilities.  We aim to demystify the culinary arts by providing opportunities to learn new cooking skills, try new recipes and dishes, whilst also learning about the importance of nutrition and healthy eating in later life.

The sessions will also provide respite from home commitments and an opportunity to develop new friendships in a warm and welcoming environment, with the added bonus of taking home new recipes to try.

The next course will start on Thursday 18th July 11-2pm and take place at Gloucester House, 3 Norman Way, Melton Mowbray, LE13 1JE.
We ask for a small contribution of £2 per session.
