The brilliant Jenny Chandler – an all-time favourite of our cookery-buyer Kathleen – joins us in the bookshop for the launch of Green Kids Cook, a book that aims to encourage and teach children around the 7–14 age group how to cook and eat food that’s as good for them as it is for the planet.
Jenny is a cookery teacher and food writer, who trained and now lectures at Leith’s School of Food and Wine. Jenny also teaches both adults and children at a number of other venues, including Borough Market, The Bertinet Kitchen and various primary school classrooms. In 2016 she was nominated The United Nations FAO European Ambassador for the International Year of Pulses, and leads the
Forward Food Campaign workshops for The Humane Society International UK.
As well as over 60 recipes for real family food with countless variations, there are sewing projects, a few foraging tips and even instructions on how to sprout your own pulses. We need our young to be engaged, to become climate-change warriors rather than worriers. Green Kids Cook sets out to give young people eco tips on how to make a difference, with healthy and sustainable recipes and plenty of fun projects along the way.
