MEN who are novices in the kitchen are being encouraged to put themselves forward for free cookery classes.

The School Food Trust has been given £44,069 by the Health Lottery to get men cooking healthy meals from scratch.

To do this they are hoping to go into companies and businesses in the county and round up a group of willing men who would like to learn how to step away from the microwave and whip up some good grub.

Media manager for the School Food Trust Claire Rick said: “We are not going to teach them how to cook gourmet meals, but we will be going into their place of work and teaching them how to use fresh ingredients to cook healthy meals on a budget.”
