Weekly lunches at Currie Crescent Community Centre

Each week a different ‘host’ leads the cooking with recipes close to her heart, teaching these to a group of 5-15 women. The group dine together. Currie Crescent provide the kitchen and each woman brings $5 to cover ingredients.

Wednesdays during the school term, 11am-1.30pm at 11 Currie Crescent, Kingston

Cost $5; RSVP and contact

Monthly in-home lunches & dinners

Running in the homes of different women in the Cooking Circles Canberra network, these dinners vary greatly from Taiwanese and Greek to more traditional roasts and cakes. Each dinner has involved a different group of women who network and connect, and every single one has been heart-warming.

Usually held once a month of a weekend or Friday night
