Taking place within SHED I at the Queen Victoria Market, this cooking demonstration is perfect for those immediately wanting to reduce their food waste.

We work with Market stall holders to find out what food they will be throwing away if it’s not sold that day. The food is taken back to the public demonstration kitchen to show the public two simple quick recipes they can do at home with these ingredients.

Tasting samples and recipes are handed out.

Demonstration by Jessica Alice: The self-titled “Nigela Lawson” of leftovers. Penny pinching and budget meals are off Jessica’s menu, and she will have you completely rethinking your leftovers. Jessica shares her passion for cuisine and the art of making leftovers the hero of any dining table on her weekly cooking shows or at her limited private workshops.
