GUEST BLOG: Vegging out

By guest blogger SIOBHAN KELLY

Cracking Good Food ran this lively and fun cooking session for young people in conjunction with the Riverbank Market Garden and Community Café Project. The session took place at Barlow Moor Community Centre on the Mersey Bank Estate, which is a fantastic facility with such lovely friendly and helpful staff - I was very impressed!

Kim Irwin, who runs the cafe at Islington Mill, led the session and shared with the group vegetable cutting skills, while everyone had a chat about the familiar and the rather more unfamiliar vegetables they were chopping. The session was an informal and friendly way to learn together, and was very relaxed. I really enjoyed the experience. It was really fun to eat and share what you have helped create, and with the fresh, exciting ingredients and colours, the stir-fries we made went down a treat - big smiles all round!

Siobhan is one of Cracking Good Food's new co-ordinators.
