We’re delighted to be supporting local community groups to run a number of cooking events this summer to help residents get creative in the kitchen and fight food waste…
Free cooking workshops in Abingdon
We’re working with fabulous community cook and nutritionist Joanna Tamburino to host a series of cooking workshops at Stonehill Community Garden.
The sessions will look at how to create tasty meals using seasonal produce, and easy ways to make more of food. This includes how to preserve foods using techniques like fermentation, and how to use vegetable peelings and scraps that often get thrown away.
- Cooking with Kitchen Scraps Saturday 20th August, 11am-1pm
- Introduction to Lacto-Fermentation Saturday 10th September, 11am-1pm
Sessions are drop-in, so no need to book. Email Joanna with questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
‘Chop and chat’ in Wantage
We’re continuing to support Down to Earth Community Café’s regular ‘chop and chat’ sessions. This is a social cooking club where participants can get inspiration for how best to cook with basic ingredients, explore flavour combinations, avoid waste, and learn from each other. Open to all levels!
Down to Earth also hosts monthly community cook-ins. Participants cook up a meal for the community using food surplus from the Oxford Food Hub which would otherwise have gone to waste. Each month focuses on a different cuisine – the next will be Greek food!
