Cooking for Men


Members take it in turns to host a lunch for 8.  The host provides the main course and accompanying wines and coffee.  Two other members provide the starter and pudding.  Among the many topics of conversation are the recipes and the provenance of the ingredients.  At the year end, in time for Christmas, we publish a book of the year’s recipes which is available to all members of our U3A.  New members are welcome. Beneath the pictures you will find some menus.
