Cooking for One

Wed 15th Sep 2021 - 6.30pm

A new book is launching to help people rediscover the joy of cooking after losing a loved one and baking after bereavement. Cooking For One will feature dishes which are ideal to prepare for solo diners who have recently lost a loved one.

It features a wide range of recipes mixing simple dishes for those who may not be used to finding their way around a kitchen, wholesome and nutritious recipes, and some decadent dishes too.

Cooking For One is the idea of Simon Beckett-Allen, who co-owns the Rosedale Funeral Home which has bases around Norfolk and Suffolk. He was inspired to create it in memory of his late sister, who was a chef.

After welcome drinks and a brief introduction, Richard Hughes will present a cookery demonstration, followed by a two course dinner, finished off with brownies and coffee.

The proceeds of the book, which will be published in September, will support Cruse Bereavement Care, which is the largest charity of its type and supports over 50,000 people dealing with grief each year.

There will also be the chance to win a fabulous hamper on the evening, and copies of the book will be on sale for a special price.
