A fun and fascinating workshop by our in-house tutors Karen Guthrie and Adam Sutherland, both thrifty and inventive cooks who take great joy in transforming leftovers.
As wardens at Grizedale Arts’s remote HQ Lawson Park, they are adept at conjuring delicious meals at the drop of a hat, using whatever is to hand, and they batch cook and preserve much of their own produce. Karen and Adam will share the kitchen hacks that help them eat well and waste nothing, despite very busy lives.
Participants will help make the workshop lunch using a wide range of leftovers, scraps and bits and bobs we all usually overlook or throw away. We will learn the secrets of a great stock, the joy of dumplings, easy fermented food & drink and help invent a vegetarian Cumberland sausage from vegetable scraps. Participants will make pretty take-home DIY waxed food wrappers to help save leftovers without plastic, and share tips on how we can all lower our carbon footprint by making smarter choices when we eat in or out.
Karen also runs The Farmer’s Arms Garden Schools, and will demonstrate easy composting with food and other domestic scraps.
