This Sunday, One hundred people from East Manchester will have a chance to learn how to cook up a great meal.
The Community Cooking Roadshow organised by Cracking Good Food’s “cooking pods” will be at New Smithfield Market in Openshaw from 11am – 2pm, and will teach local people how to cook three different delicious meals.
As well as a cooking lesson and meal, all participants will receive recipes, ingredients, and store cupboard spices to take away, to inspire them to recreate the meal at home.
The event will also offer discussion and top tips on how to eat healthy food without spending a fortune, how to reduce food waste at home and use up left overs, healthy eating, and how your food choices can help the environment.
All food for the event will be made entirely from produce, provided by FareShare Greater Manchester, that would otherwise have been wasted. This includes fresh but cosmetically imperfect vegetables and fruits, and food intercepted from New Smithfield Market.
Adele Jordan, Director of Cracking Good Food comments that
“We’re brainwashed by ever-more-sophisticated marketing by the global food industry, to think that healthy, tasty home-cooked food is expensive and tricky to master. And it’s simply not true – good food doesn’t need to be expensive once you know some basic cooking skills and a few tricks of the trade!”
