Man with a Pan is a free cookery course for older men who want to learn how to cook healthy nutritious meals from scratch.
We provide all the ingredients and even the aprons!

We have been delivering these courses in a number of areas including Urmston, Sale and Hale and we are always on the lookout for other venues to provide the service.

It is aimed at older men who: 
  *   may have been recently bereaved
  *   may have caring responsibilities (ie may be caring for someone with dementia or other long term illness)
  *   may be lonely and isolated and have never really learned to cook
  *   may live alone and don't have the skills to cook healthy nutritious meals from scratch

It is a fun, friendly 5 week practical cookery course where participants will learn how to cook healthy, nutritious meals, meet new people and gain essential cookery skills.

There will also be information on the benefits of physical activity, quitting smoking, limiting alcohol, NHS Health Checks and cancer screening.
