The class took place at CFINE’s Cook at the Nook, a community training kitchen that offers classes such as ‘Cooking on a budget’ to community groups and organisations, runs SlimFine health and wellbeing programme and offers catering for events. The latest addition is Tuk In, a pop up catering service and café around Aberdeen serviced by an electric tuk tuk, providing a unique, affordable, fresh and healthy catering service.
The five winners enjoyed a three-hour cooking class with a menu of baba ganoush, sweet potato and chickpea stew and a cardamom rice pudding. It was a fun new experience for all the participants who discovered new ways of transforming vegetables into delicious creations.
“The class was amazing because I wouldn’t have thought about cooking only with vegetables or about putting those ingredients all together but I think it turned out really nice.” Jane, winner of plant-based cooking competition.
