Zero Waste Cooking

City Harvest in collaboration with Mercato Metropolitano are happy to present “Throw it…in the pan!”.

Learn the secrets of great food, by mastering basic cooking techniques, each month focusing on a different technique.

We will show you how to transform any surplus food into an impressive gourmet feast. Understand how to easily eat in season, create zero waste meals and celebrate food.

Join us for a fun class and learn how to prepare delicious meals.

At the end of the class you will taste the recipes but bring your own food container to take away anything you don’t manage to eat.

Please be aware that 80% of ticket sales will be donated to City Harvest to help them on their mission to save food from waste and provide meals to the hungry. 

This Cookery Class:

Homemade Pasta & Tomato Sauce – 18th March, 6.30-8.30pm
