We delivered our Love Food Hate Waste messages in Rochdale on Monday, when the Rochdale Women's Welfare Association was celebrating 103 years of International Women's Day. Over 150 ladies attended the festival and many were fortunate to sample the fragrantly spiced homemade quesadillas and warm spicy salsa we were dishing up.
They devoured the food and soaked up Kim's tips on reducing waste in the kitchen, saving food, the environment and money, and were keen to hear our ideas on what to do with shrivelled veg in the fridge and old tins in the cupboard! Many were unfamiliar with the chipotle flavouring in our dish, but loved the smokiness and how it changed the taste of the food. Most of all, they were delighted to be introduced to a simple, light dish which was high in protein and fibre, and provided a new idea of what to do with tomatoes, coriander and cumin, which they all seemed to have in their larders.
