Are you interested in sharing coping strategies around food with other bereaved partners and learning how to cook simple but highly nutritious and tasty meals? From 26th October we will be offering a monthly 6-hour Culinary Grief Workshop for bereaved partners. Based on our personal and professional experience we believe that grieving partners need holistic support to cope with the emotional and practical challenges around cooking for one to prevent any short- or long-term health effects grief can have on body and mind.
