GUEST BLOG: Rain didn't stop play

By guest blogger SARAH FANTHORPE

Riverbank Market Garden Project hosted another fabulous event on Saturday, and Cracking Good Food were there to cook up Souvlakia kebabs, beetroot and carrot salad, and a warm potato salad. This delicious combination was accompanied by a tangy mint yoghurt sauce.

The residents of Barlow Hall Estate were not deterred by the torrential rain and all joined together under our gazebo to learn how to cook this nutritious meal using vegetables and fresh herbs grown on the community allotment. Gideon our chef showed us how easy it is to transform simple belly pork into mouth-watering kebabs using a simple infusion of oregano, lemon juice and garlic, and everyone was suitably impressed.

The Riverbank project encourages families and local residents to come together to grow and sample their own fruit and vegetables, and the day with Cracking Good Food was perfect for that. Riverbank Market Garden is behind the Co-op on the junction of Barlow Moor Road and Hardy Lane in Chorlton, and is accessed via the small road next to the dentist’s. All are welcome.

There are more photographs from this event on the Cracking Good Food Facebook page.
