Welcome to our website

Strange things happen to men of a certain age. Yes, we have less on top but more in other places. We have seen a lot, done a lot, talked a lot and heard a lot. But we don’t have to listen to the advice of others anymore, because we are free at last to be ourselves. To others we can seem a little grumpy, but we are not like that all the time; indeed we have our moments of joy and conviviality.

Some of our best moments of joy and conviviality are when we get together as a group to cook. We are the Gourmet Geezers of Haslemere, who have put together a cookbook of about a hundred of our favourite recipes that we have cooked by ourselves for ourselves.

We have had a great time preparing, cooking and eating. Our greatest hope is that some of the fun we had can be shared with you. Take a look at our sample menus from our recipes and learn more about us, as possible future chefs of the year!

Oh, perhaps the most important thing to note, is that all profits from the sale of the book will be donated to our chosen local charity the Hunter Centre, which supports those living with dementia.
