That was how his cooking-for-one class was born.

"I suddenly realised how lazy I was," he said.

So he went to his local seniors group and announced he wanted to start a cooking class for men.

The classes happens every week at the Artisan Cafe in Rotorua, where everyone chips in $10.00 to learn how to make a particular meal. 

But women have now invaded the class because they all have one thing in common - living alone.

The class has gone from strength-to-strength, running for seven years straight.
