The Cottage Cooking Club & Food Revolution Day 2016

Dear fellow members of The Cottage Cooking Club:

As some of you probably know, last year I joined The Food Revolution Community Ambassador Program, an initiative of the Jamie Oliver Foundation.

The Food Revolution is „an ongoing, global campaign to provoke debate and inspire positive, meaningful change in the way we access, consume and understand food. Meaningful change is built from the ground up. We celebrate the joy of food, we educate people and communities to make better food choices and we inspire them to come together as one voice to lobby governments and businesses to make positive, lasting change.“

Every May, we hold Food Revolution Day and this year it falls on May 20th, 2016.

I thought it would be a wonderful idea to get you all involved. The line-up of recipes that Jamie Oliver has put together revolves around ten delicious, nutritionally balanced recipes, which he has have defined as the “Starter Pack of Cooking”, each covering a different skill and technique that can give anyone the confidence to cook good, real, healthy meals for themselves and their families, for now and the future. Jamie´s  recipes include a Simple Humous, Minestrone, Classic Tomato Spaghetti Sauce, Cheese Omelette etc. Tacking a cue from this wonderful idea, I suggest the following:

We shall get started with our new cookbook project in July – this month we will Join the Food Revolution and I ask you to choose from one (1) to ten (10) recipes from Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstalls`River Cottage Everyday Veg that you believe is a „must-know“ recipe from the book. Cook as little or as many recipe(s)  from Hugh's book and share the technique and cooking skill you learned from making it (them). Then just leave your link from May 20th until the end oft he month right here.

Our Motto for  the month of May is: JOIN THE FOOD REVOLUTION! And share your wisdom, skills and techniques with all of us!
