Visitors to Tesco at Catterick Garrison on Wednesday 12 March will see a cookery demonstration with a difference.
York and North Yorkshire Waste Partnership staff are teaming up with celebrity chef Nigel Brown to demonstrate how to make the most of the food you buy and save money by showing you how to us use up every bit by expanding your recipe repertoire.
As part of the partnership’s Love Food Hate Waste campaign, cookery demonstrations will take place throughout the day with staff on hand to give shoppers at the supermarket information and advice and free tools and recipe cards to help them reduce food waste and save money.
The aim is to encourage people to think about the way they shop, prepare, store and use food, to help reduce the amount of food and drink that is bought and then thrown away in our homes. Buying good food and drink which is then eventually thrown in the bin costs a typical household almost £60 a month.
Nigel said: “To me, it’s second nature to utilise all the leftover ingredients we have in the kitchen - the best meals you can make are often the ones using your leftovers, Why? Because they cost you nothing. The words of a true Yorkshire man!”
The Love Food Hate Waste Cookery demonstrations will run from 10am to 2pm at Tesco supermarket, Richmond Road, Catterick Garrison, DL9 3EN.
