Pro­gram cooks up a storm

The Tatura Guardian - - News -

Tatura Com­mu­nity House’s Cook n Save pro­gram wraps up to­day af­ter five weeks of cre­ative kitchen cook­ery with vol­un­teer Bev Roberts and St Vin­cent de Paul’s Bryan Miller.

Par­tic­i­pants en­joyed mak­ing pies last week as part of the pro­gram where they en­joyed an egg and ba­con pie, shep­herd’s pie, pastie and mini piz­zas as well as ap­ple pie and bis­cuits at a cost of $40 to $50.

‘‘Cook­ing is part of it, but for $40 to $50 we can feed an army,’’ Mr Miller said.

Par­tic­i­pant Heather Price said she had thor­oughly en­joyed the pro­gram where they sat down af­ter­wards and en­joyed the meal they had made.

‘‘It’s great for build­ing so­cial con­nec­tions as well,’’ Mr Miller said.

With sev­eral par­tic­i­pants now far more con­fi­dent in the kitchen, they will gather next week to cel­e­brate the end of the pro­gra­mas well as Ms Roberts’ birth­day.

‘‘The group will now cook on their own for Bev as a birth­day treat and to thank her for all her help,’’ Tatura Com­mu­nity House man­ager Leeane But­ton said.

Ms But­ton said they in­tended to ex­tend the pro­gram to fo­cus on men, cre­at­ing the Blokes Cook n Save pro­gram.

‘‘We were find­ing a lot of the time it was women at­tend­ing the ses­sion,’’ she said.

‘‘So we want to en­cour­age men to come along and get in­volved as well.’’
