Course description

The amount of wasted food that is thrown away each day is shocking. This short 4 week course is for those students looking at reducing their food waste and who want to be more sustainable and cost effective. It is also for those who have limited time and would like to learn quick, nutritious and tasty recipes they can make quickly using leftovers from the fridge. We will make a quick, easy, nutritious lunch/ light tea using bits from the fridge that you and your family will enjoy.

On this course you will discover some new ways to use up leftovers, saving you money and reducing food waste. Tips will be given on storing food, and all questions are welcome e.g. How do I adapt a recipe to suit restricted diets? I need help cutting onions? What on earth can I do with 2 eggs, a potato and some veggie bits? No question is a silly one! Recipes will be available in Canvas, our Virtual Classroom for you to look at and use during and after the course. You may wish to cook along with the tutor and then enjoy a delicious lunch or just take notes to use later. Places are limited so sign up quickly!
