GUEST BLOG: Cooking roadshow

By guest blogger ADELE JORDAN

We had a great day running our first Community Cooking Roadshow (hopefully the start of many!) at New Smithfields Market in east Manchester. As ever, all the food was supplied by the wonderful Fareshare, an organisation that redistributes short dated and unwanted food from composting, to people in need. 

We cooked three recipes in three separate pods with over 100 people, distributed all but six of our free Take Away Kit Bags full of raw ingredients and gave away nearly two pallets of food that was deemed as waste. All the participants also received a booklet of recipes and top tips for how to save money on food. 

Thanks go to the wonderful volunteers, all those who participated and to the Big Lottery for funding the event. You can see more photos from the day on the Cracking Good Food Facebook page by clicking here.
