Tatura Community House’s Codgers Cook ’n’ Save program has helped develop the cooking skills of Tatura men during the past the month.
The program is an extension of a Cook ‘n’ Save program held earlier in the year and was funded by St Vinnies.
Tatura Community House manager Leeane Button said the basic feedback they had received was this was a wonderful opportunity for men who lived alone to meet others and also learn some great cooking skills.
‘‘The group would all eat together and take the recipes and leftovers home,’’ Ms Button said.
‘‘Some of the meals they made with guidance from Dee Vidler were parmigiana, pies and pasties and barbecue trifle.’’
The age range of participants was from 26 to 80.
The men meet once a week to learn how to cook a new meal from scratch.
