Nutrition and Cooking Classes for Elderly People

Sally from The Brook

In association with the Nutrition Foundation and the generous support of the Nelson City Council we are holding another 4 week block of classes starting Nov 3rd. Each class is 3 hours long and consists of a nutrition talk (meal planning, reading and understanding food labels, stretching your budget, etc) Followed by a demonstration by your tutor and then you will cook the same recipe. We sit down to eat together and after cleaning up, depart for home.


This is also an opportunity to get to know more people and after the classes we may meet up in a local cafe. Please see details in the flyer.


Please note these classes are aimed at people who lack motivation to cook for themselves and need more confidence and skills in the kitchen. Sorry, it is NOT for people looking for more ideas for their cooking repetoire. The course includes fairly basic recipes from a 50 page recipe booklet that you will take home.

Seville Oranges

David from Upper Moutere

I am still trying to find some Seville oranges for marmalade making. Our tree is still a couple of years from fruiting. Thank you for the suggestion of using eating oranges with added lemon - but in my long experience that doesn't yield the lovely sweet/ bitter taste that is so distinctive.
Grateful for any leads!

Favourite foodie finds

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your favourite foodie finds on your travels through NZ. Have you come across a particularly amazing cafe, bakery restaurant or food truck? Had an especially delicious pie, burger, sandwich, smoothie bowl or cronut? Been to what must be one of the country's best fish and chip joints? Or been pleasantly surprised by a town's food scene? Please share the details below and include 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you don't want it included in an article. Cheers.
