From April to September, the Dig In community allotment team will be hosting monthly “Cook 4 Life” sessions, offering local people the chance to cook and eat tasty fresh produce on the allotment site. The menus will be shaped around whatever is in season, including ingredients picked fresh from the allotment. This ‘from plot to plate’ approach ensures that diners will sample some of the freshest food they’ll ever eat.
When the weather is kind, participants will cook and enjoy their meal in the open air, but shelter is available just in case. There’ll be children’s activities, so mums and dads need not be put off, and an NHS nutritionist on hand to give advice and answer questions on healthy eating.
All the cook sessions are completely free, and will run 10:00am – 12:30pm on the last Wednesday of each month, at the Albany Allotments on Pasture Road, Stapleford. Places are limited, and last year’s events were very popular so booking is essential.
Call Kathy on 0115 875 2095, or Mia on 0115 883 5049.
