Work­shop for cook­ing dads

Napier Courier - - NEWS -

Ev­ery par­ent needs some ‘one pot won­ders’ they can pull out of their hats when they need to get a meal on the table quick.

KND Hawke’s Bay (Kids Need Dads) knows that dads are now more in­volved in par­ent­ing and so is of­fer­ing a free no fuss work­shop, de­signed to get a meal on the table in a flash and on time.

KND man­ager Shayne Jef­fares says of­ten with both par­ents work­ing and less time avail­able, fam­i­lies are some­times opt­ing for ex­pen­sive take­aways or less nu­tri­tious fast foods. Be­ing able to get to­gether around the table for a meal can of­ten be the only time a fam­ily can con­nect and share in their day, Shayne says. “This is a valu­able time for par­ents to be able to re­lax, un­wind and catch up with their chil­dren’s day.”

With an abun­dance of food pro­grammes such as MasterChef and Jamie’s 15 Minute Meals now on TV, re­search shows that two in three men re­vealed they cook more than their fa­ther did, spend­ing 11 hours and 30 min­utes in the kitchen each week.

“If dad is home first, or it’s his turn to cook, we can give some ideas how to get a meal out in no time, clean up and sit down and be proud of what he has cooked for his fam­ily,” Shayne says.

■ KND meal work­shop, Tues­day, Novem­ber 13, 6pm-8pm, Napier Old Boys Marist Rugby Club, Park Is­land, Napier. Koha to cover the in­gre­di­ents, book­ing essen­tial. For more in­for­ma­tion head to KNDHawkes­bay facebook page, or email: hawkes­bay@knd.org.nz
