Senior Chefs – Making Friends and Making Meals – Cooking classes for men and women

There’s a cooking class in town and its proving you are never too old to learn.  The free lessons include tips on meal planning, making economical choices, and keeping your meals healthy and nutritious, plus you get to eat what you prepare.

Sharing food and cooking for others provides motivation for cooking which is important for many people who live on their own and find that meals become a boring necessity.  When meals become unattractive it can lead to a lack of appetite, poor nutrition and a number of related health concerns.

Working in pairs in the class, our ‘chefs’ create some wonderful recipes including vegetable quiches, coleslaw, fruit smoothies, omelettes, chilli con carne, and yummy apple crumble.  Over eight weekly morning sessions the ‘chefs’ learn to prepare and cook a variety of food making a complete balanced and nutritious menu.

Our Senior Chef programme has a bonus social by-product too.  It is a fun programme where people come together for the common purpose of learning to cook for themselves so friendships are bound to develop. As well as enjoying the company of others the ‘chefs’ take away a greater sense of wellbeing, the ability to fend a little better for themselves and are less socially isolated.

While we can’t guarantee to make you a Master Chef, you will certainly be a Senior Chef if you come and join us for this wonderful free cooking course.

If you are over 65, we have a free, Senior Chef course (8 session, 4 week) starting. Places are limited so phone Age Concern Otago for more information and to book your place: 477 1040

Senior Chefs – Making Friends Making Meals – Cooking classes for men and women

There’s a cooking class in town and its proving you are never too old to learn.  The free lessons include tips on meal planning, making economical choices, and keeping your meals healthy and nutritious, plus you get to eat what you prepare.

Sharing food and cooking for others provides motivation for cooking which is important for many people who live on their own and find that meals become a boring necessity.  When meals become unattractive it can lead to a lack of appetite, poor nutrition and a number of related health concerns.

Working in pairs in the class, our ‘chefs’ create some wonderful recipes including vegetable quiches, coleslaw, fruit smoothies, omelettes, chilli con carne, and yummy apple crumble.  Over eight weekly morning sessions the ‘chefs’ learn to prepare and cook a variety of food making a complete balanced and nutritious menu.

Our Senior Chef programme has a bonus social by-product too.  It is a fun programme where people come together for the common purpose of learning to cook for themselves so friendships are bound to develop. As well as enjoying the company of others the ‘chefs’ take away a greater sense of wellbeing, the ability to fend a little better for themselves and are less socially isolated.

While we can’t guarantee to make you a Master Chef, you will certainly be a Senior Chef if you come and join us for this wonderful free cooking course.

If you are over 65, we have a free, Senior Chef course (8 session, 4 week) starting. Places are limited so phone Age Concern Otago for more information and to book your place: 477 1040
