NORTH Kerry men will be sweating for all the right reasons in their kitchens thanks to a new course starting in Listowel this week aiming to teach the domestically dumber sex about cooking fantastic meals.
Participants will be sweating from hard, but focused, work rather than from nerves at being out of their depths from now on.
It's all thanks to Listowel-based chef Sid Sheehan who aims to put men at their ease in the kitchen and make great home cooks out of them.
Sid - who recently joined the staff of Garvey's Supervalu in Listowel - will begin by teaching relatively easy fare before progressing onto the more complex skills.
The course beings this Wednesday, November 13, in the Listowel Family Resource Centre.
"The beginners cookery course is aimed at men cooking in the home either for themselves or their families whilst living on a strict budget," Family Resource Centre Communications Officer Stephen Stack explained.
"It will offer participants a variety of simple yet new ideas for their home menu, starting with some lunch ideas and progressing on to hot tasty meals.
Sid also promises to teach participants some of the tricks of the trade, which has gained during 14 years experience as a chef," he added.
Sid is currently in his third year of study in nutritional therapy at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in Cork.
Garvey's SuperValu in Listowel are to sponsor all ingredients for the course. To book ring the centre on (068) 23584.
