Cooking

Less Waste More Taste!

Through improving and adapting our food habits and cooking skills we can reduce our food waste.

The 2000m² team are working with Pat Tweedie, a Community Cook, to teach climate-friendly cooking skills tailored to meet the local community’s need and in collaboration with West Linton and Newlands Primary Schools.

Pat Tweedie is cooking in the community poly tunnel at Whitmuir surrounded by pink flowers.

We focus on supporting people to:

  – Plan food purchases to minimise waste

  – Think about what’s in season locally and learn how to cook with it from scratch

  – Keep/cook with leftovers and surplus

  – Consider food safety

  – Preserving fresh food through pickling, freezing, drying and making jams

  – Take part in food sharing activities
