Basic Cooking for Men

Basic Cooking for Men is a new small group program being offered in Launceston to any man impacted by cancer – whether they have the diagnosis, or their partner does – and they want to be able to cook meals from scratch.

The concept is that in a small group (four to six people), over four sessions, the attendees will be shown how to cook healthy inexpensive meals perfect for batch cooking and therefore freezing.

Groups will run according to demand. To register or to find out more please contact Megan on 6779 1111 or email
