Go Green Week Cookery Demonstration

Next week is Go Green Week (7-14th February) which  is a student action week set up by People and Planet to raise awareness of climate change. This year’s theme is ‘Love Your Future, Love Your Climate’, as it falls so close to Valentine’s Day.  What does this have to do with food I hear you ask?

Well, it is estimated that halving your meat and dairy consumption could take 10% off each person’s Carbon footprint. (Source: People and Planet) To encourage  students to eat more local fruit and vegetables, I have been asked by the University of Worcester (where I work) to do a cookery demonstration to students and staff showing them what they cook with our fantastic local fruit and vegetables.

This has made me quite nervous as it is my first ever live solo cookery demonstration.  I do not have other people around me, like when I did the Masterchef Experience at the BBC Good Food Show here and here, and I do not have the ability to edit, like I did when I made my first cookery video a couple of weeks ago.  However, I have decided to give it ago and I will be making (with fruit and vegetables kindly supplied by Worcester Produce) the following:

  • Vegetable Curry and Naan Bread
  • Roman style Vegetable Pizzas
  • Caramel Apple Meringues

I am hoping that someone will be able to video the event for me so that you can all see the demonstration too.  I will be putting my recipes and pictures up as soon as I can after the event. If you would like to more information about what else the University of Worcester is doing to celebrate Go Green Week, please see here. If anyone has any tips for doing cookery demonstrations that would help a complete novice, it would be greatly apperciated.

Please do not forget that I am having a give-away of a Forman and Field hamper, which you can receive in time for Valentine’s Day. More information is here.

Happy Cooking! :-)

  2. Hi Jo,
    great to see the University of Worcester encouraging their students to think about their eating, and encouraging them to take some small steps in order to make more environmentally and animal friendly meals.

    If students would like to see more cookery demonstrations of vegetarian food, you could contact Liz Hughes from http://www.ourlizzy.com – she does regular demonstrations throughout the Midlands, and also runs cookery courses.

  3. Good luck Jo, I’m sure you’ll be fab. The 3 dishes shound perfect for students.
