Pass on Your Cooking Skills

After a successful men’s Community Cooking Course pilot in 2013 the NFDC would like to start the programme up again in the New Forest.

Could you teach someone to cook a dish like this?

This is a great opportunity to share your passion for cooking, nutrition and food, and also to be trained to deliver an exciting ‘What shall I cook tonight?’ Community Cooking Class for men.

The class is designed for men who perhaps have to cope on their own, maybe after a bereavement, or as a carer, or who just want to know a bit more about cooking and healthy eating.

The role will particularly suit retired cookery teachers, those that are interested in cooking and are looking to build up their CV, and those that are looking to gain experience in training.

Volunteers will have their expenses paid, and be provided with free training to deliver the course. The course will provide prescribed topics including week by week recipes, food labelling and reducing salt, sugar and cholesterol.

They are now actively seeking volunteers to run a local Community Cooking Classes. Volunteering would be for for 2-3 hours per week for 6 weeks (during the course duration).

There are a number of venues available across the forest which include Lymington & New Milton. If you would like to join in, please contact:
