Cooking with confidence

Brendoncare Clubs has been running cookery demonstrations in many of its existing clubs for the last five years, but this March, with springtime just arriving, the Cooking for One club in Wimborne returns on Saturday 30th March with the opportunity to enjoy some seasonal treats for those who attend.

The club, which is based at Dacombes of Wimborne on Leigh Road, enjoys the use of the local department store’s show kitchen, offering cooking demonstrations and providing practical advice about cooking for oneself, helping to keep people healthy. The club was originally designed to support older people plan and prepare delicious and nutritious meals for themselves, even if they live alone.

Cindy Walker, Locality Manager for Brendoncare Clubs in the area, explains, “It is our experience that many older people find cooking for themselves a challenge, especially if they are used to cooking for a family of if their partner was previously the cook in the house. These Cooking for One sessions are great fun for our club members, who get to taste a range of dishes.

The club is suitable for anyone who wants to learn how to cook for one or indeed anyone with an interest in food who wants to join a friendly club with others who like cooking and eating. We are very grateful to Dacombes for providing the space for the club and hope to see lots of people from the local community.” For more information on Brendoncare Clubs, please visit or call 01962 857099.
