A couple of weeks ago I led a children’s cooking workshop for the brilliant community project – Incredible Edible Wilmslow – at Intoto Kitchen Showroom, Wilmslow.
I wanted to use ingredients from the Incredible Edible beds dotted around Wilmslow town centre.
It’s October, and although many of the vegetables were over, there were plenty of herbs so I decided on herby vegetable pizzas and fruit and flower kebabs – both easy, fun recipes for children and, most importantly, delicious fresh food! We had a lot of fun – with children as young as 6 and a few grown ups joining in as well! Jay, director of Intoto Kitchens Wilmslow (http://www.intoto.co.uk/showrooms/view/in-toto-wilmslow) was incredibly relaxed whilst we created a lovely mess in one of his state – of – the – art kitchens. (I’ve never used such high quality appliances and they really were so easy and brilliant to cook with). All my workshop participants were very adventurous and creative – we ended up with calzones; nasturtium decorated pizzas and very heavily chocolate dipped kebabs…. So thanks to everyone who came along; helped with the washing up; took pictures or just joined in the fun! Incredible Edible is a brilliant community project that provides the town with herb and vegetable beds for anyone and everyone to enjoy and connecting us to our food from ‘plot to plate’. I’m now thinking of ideas for the next workshop….
