Great work team.

The Men's Kitchen in Turramurra will be opening another monthly Cooking Session.

As we take a break over December and January each year, starting in February or March 2024 we will be adding another regular monthly cooking session in Turramurra.  This will be our third session each month at that Kitchen.  

We will have 10 vacancies for new members to attend and, led by two experienced cooking instructors they will enjoy preparing a two course meal which they will later sit together to enjoy.

Pairs of those attending will be preparing a dish each from our recipe book.  And by the time this new groups starts we should have our latest recipe book printed and an individual copy ready to be presented to each member, along with their Men's Kitchen apron.

The Men's Kitchen is cooking in Turramurra too!

In July, the Men's Kitchen launched another Kitchen in Turramurra at the the Uniting Church Hall (See details below)

Our Program


Lindfield Kitchen

We conduct three cooking sessions each month at the St Albans Anglican Church Hall in Lindfield and at each cooking session we have 10 regular attendees cooking their preferred meal of the day.

At each of our cooking sessions we conduct our program in the same manner:

  • We meet at 11am and have a chat about the menu of the day discussing any significant points about each new recipe.
  • Then we form into pairs, with each pair tasked to prepare a complete dish. They then choose which dish they would like to tackle. (Generally, a choice of a main, a dessert or any side dish of the day like flat bread or salad.)
  • Prepare the meal with the cooking instructor helping us to learn by pointing out tips and techniques as we construct our dish.
  • When the meal is ready, we sit together and enjoy the feast we have just made and have a general chat.
  • Plan the menu for the next time we meet. At this point, we seek volunteers to buy the ingredients for each menu item, and a volunteer to wash the aprons and tea towels.
  • Finally, we clear up, wash the dishes and depart by about 2pm.

Ku-ring-gai Calendar

Turramurra Kitchen

Our second Ku-ring-gai kitchen is operating in the Turramurra Uniting Church Hall, which is the same venue where we conducted our Ku-ring-gai launch in August 2022.  This venue is located off Gilroy Lane Turramurra with access to the venue off a large two-hour public car park.

Helped significantly by two grants, one from the Ku-ring-gai Council, the other a Federal Grant obtained via the member for Bradfield Paul Fletcher, we are now operating one cooking session each month and we plan to be operating three cooking sessions each month by early 2024.
