We are more aware than ever about how our eating habits can affect the world around us. It is estimated that approximately a quarter of greenhouse gas emissions can be attributed to the food industry, about half of that further attributed to livestock. Food miles, product processing and excessive packaging only add to the negative affect and that’s all before it even gets to your plate. Being conscious of our impact is so important, but sometimes it feels difficult to know where to get started.
Join us to explore green cooking with Jenny Chandler, the perfect opportunity to make vibrant, exciting, healthier food that is better for us and the world.
