Launch of the ‘LOVE YOUR LEFTOVERS’ Community Cookbook
The community cookbook ‘Love Your Leftovers’ has been developed as part of Council’s commitment to the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage’s ‘Love Food Hate Waste’ program, designed to minimise food waste in NSW households.
The majority of recipes in the book have been sourced from members of the community who, along with their parents before them, survived periods of food scarcity. They respected food and were creative in developing ways to ensure that it was never wasted. This is a scrapbook of their recipes, memories and ideas that we hope will inspire you to also ‘Love Your Leftovers’.
A launch event will be held over 2 days at Stockland Merrylands. There will be copies of the book available (both for sale and some as giveaways) as well as cooking demonstrations by MasterChef 2011 contestant Jay Huxley, using some of the recipes from the book.
So come along to the launch event and grab a copy of the book – with over 100 recipes, countless tips and snippets of community history, it will make a great Christmas gift!
8 December 2pm-7pm
9 December 11am – 2pm
(outside the new Coles supermarket)
Price: $15 with 10% of the proceeds from the sale of each book being donated to the Parramatta Mission’s Food Recovery Program.
