The Local Kitchen
The Local Kitchen, 123 Avenue B South, has a retail store. There will be both food products and prepared dishes, and it will serve as an outlet for members to try out their creations on a small scale.
Chef Jenni hosts private events at The Local Kitchen. One of your options is a Black Box Challenge. She’ll create a menu, on the spot, from whatever ingredients she finds in the box.
The fridge was full of lettuce when I started a new housesitting assignment this week. Way too much for salad for one person, so I decided to make a batch of lettuce soup. It turned out really well with good flavour. I kept it simple with leek, potato, coconut milk, and a few flavourings – the choice is yours. There are lots and lots of recipe options online.
Food Waste Solutions
A European contest recognizes groups that have found various ways to reduce food waste. My vote is going to the Transition Café in Fishguard, Wales. I’m looking forward to having a meal there next month.
Tempting Kids into the Kitchen
Table of Delights, a British children’s cooking website, is a mix of silly and educational: “So the site has songs about sardines and stories about murdered beetroots (‘Kids love something a bit macabre,’ notes Thomson) alongside information about how to turn cream into vampire blood, recipes for stargazy pie and detailed lesson plans for teachers.” (The Guardian)
And, for a slightly older audience, there are YouTube videos from SORTEDfood.
