GUEST BLOG: Stirring things up

By guest blogger JULIET LAWSON

Yesterday (Wednesday 29 June), we ran another busy session with community group regulars Chorlton Good Neighbours, cooking stir-fry followed by summer fruit compote topped with yoghurt and granola.

Time is always tight at these sessions, as we only have a two-hour slot to rustle up a two-course meal for everyone, so we got down to some serious team veggie-chopping before the session started. It was a riot of colours with sweet potato, broccoli, red and yellow peppers, courgette, mushrooms, celeriac and carrots. There was plenty of flavour going in with the chilli, garlic, ginger, sesame and soy. We had about 25 people to feed, so it was a mad wok cook-off! It turned out a bit spicier than we expected – those cheeky chillies tasted ever so mild when they were raw! – but it went down well and then it was a nice gentle warm summer fruit compote for dessert, full of all sorts of summer berries. Thanks to the team for their hard work!
