Crisis Cooking: Timeless Recipes for Tough Times


Audience Family friendlySuitable for all

In times of crisis – from economic challenges to natural disasters – making nutritious and tasty meals can be a daunting task. But fear not; here you can join a unique culinary journey exploring recipes that have stood the test of time.

Explore using cheap, humble ingredients like tinned tomatoes and lentils and share your own go-to favourites taught to you by family or friends. This isn’t just about cooking; it’s about connecting with our past and future through the flavours that sustained our ancestors and will feed the generations to come.

Your shared recipe ideas may be featured in an upcoming book Recipe Book for the Ages; a testament to resilience and creativity in the kitchen. You can even take home a packet of seeds to continue your sustainable cooking journey.

Cook, connect and cultivate – one recipe at a time!
