GUEST BLOG: Spill the beans

By guest blogger CHRIS YOUNG

Cracking Good Food is continuing to partner up with Love Food Hate Waste (LFHW) and Recycling for Greater Manchester, and on Saturday we were at Crimble Croft Community Centre in Heywood, Rochdale.

With a room full of enthusiastic people, CGF’s chef Kim started out by talking about how much food we waste in England and how, by doing some easy, practical things every day in the home, we can all waste much less, which will ultimately benefit our purses as well as the environment. These sessions are not just informative, they are practical as well, and we all got busy making a vegetable and bean chilli with rice for everyone to enjoy at the end of the session. After Kim showed how to easily chop an onion, everyone got chopping away. The rest of the vegetables followed and as Kim started the cooking, a lovely smell spread throughout the room.

We had a great discussion and shared ides and tips throughout the session – as well as enjoying a tasty veggie and bean chilli. Everyone agreed that they learned a lot and that they would make the dish as home!

There are lots more photos from this session on the CGF Facebook page.
