Sustainable cooking workshop

Did you know that almost 50% of all food waste comes from households?
Let’s do something to reduce this statistic!

Transition HW is working together with Food Sharing to deliver sustainable cooking classes on our campus. By showing you some basic and flexible recipes, we hope you can have more confidence in cooking healthy meals and reduce food waste in hall.

The cooking class

Food Sharing Edinburgh will run fun and interactive sustainable cooking classes to show students no-waste cooking techniques.  Their aim is to show students three simple, versatile recipes that will help students to cook healthier and waste less food.

  • Each class will have a particular focus or theme, scroll below to see the workshop schedule and its theme.
  • There will be two professionally trained tutors and no more than five students per class.
  • The class runs from 6 to 8 pm in the chaplaincy kitchen. But do come a few minutes early to meet your tutors and maybe have a cuppa before you start.
  • At the end of the class, you will receive a goodie bag with some cupboard staples and no-waste recipe cards.
  • You will have the chance to taste your food together with the rest of the group and cooking tutors. And while you’re enjoying your edible creations together why not have a bit discussion about food?

What do you need to bring:

  • Enthusiasm for food! And we mean good food that is healthy for you.
  • Interest in learning more about food sustainability and food waste.
  • Some Tupperware for the left-over!
