Cook & Speak @ Our Allotment

Last Thursday our allotment played host to the cook & speak group from The Friendship Cafe.

The group are mainly based at The Friendship Cafe, but regularly visit our allotment and other venues to cook. The aim of the group is for people to come together and improve their english whilst sharing recipes from their own cultures. They came to our allotment to use our BBQ, grilling up some chicken and sausages. Alongside this they had some couscous and made fresh salad using some of the freshly picked vegetables.

As part of sharing their cultures, some of the members made drinks – one was Chicha (rice, milk, and cinnamon) and another was Tamarindo (water, tamarind, sugar).

With music flowing, the sun out, and delicious food being served, everyone had a great time.
