Didsbury Dinners - Low-Carbon Community Cookbook Launch

Please join us at The Albert Club on Sunday 17 April for the launch of an exciting new cookbook.

Didsbury Dinners: The Low-Carbon Community Cookbook aims to get us all thinking creatively about food sustainability. All proceeds from the sale of the book will go towards promoting food sustainability in Didsbury – planting a new community orchard; subsidising cookery classes for those most in need; working with local businesses; and other projects to create an atmosphere of local food sustainability.

As well as 40 pages of recipes from the likes of Rhubarb Restaurant, Folk Cafe Bar, Dig Veg Box Scheme, Bradley Fold Allotments and Didsbury Village Women's Institute, the book explains why it is important to think about food sustainability and how one person really can make a difference. How to source food locally – from growing herbs on your window sill to signing up for a allotment, and from buying locally-grown foods to eating out sustainably, depending your level of motivation!

You can also pick up simple carbon-lowering tips, such as how to make your own 'takeaways' – for your wallet, waistline and the world.

The event will be a fantastic opportunity for local consumers (that's you!), producers/growers, retailers, and skills teachers, such as local cookery schools and foragers, to meet each other and discuss how Didsbury can become even more food sustainable.

Manchester Community Vegetable Orchestra will also be making its debut performance at the book launch. Really hope to see you there!
