Getting Everyone Cooking AgainWed 19 Dec 2012
Story by The Food Revolution Team
A Great Food Filled Year!
We want to change the way people eat and get them cooking again, to inspire them with great recipes and to educate them that cooking shouldn’t be intimidating and that good food isn’t the preserve of fancy chefs and posh restaurants. After all cooking and preparing homemade food from scratch is an essential life skill, and what’s more, it can be great fun to!
That’s why, each month we highlight one of our Food Revolution recipes through our social media and encourage people to try it out at home. Whether it’s getting your kids in the kitchen creating some simple, delicious oatmeal and raisin cookies or from scratch pizzas, or trying a new alternative to a traditional dish like our vegetable chile, it’s all about getting in the kitchen and cooking from scratch!
Our recipe for this month is our spinach, red onion and feta frittata, a great breakfast or brunch for a crowd over the holidays, and you can even add in some of your leftovers too!
Don’t worry if you missed out on any of the recipes from this year, as you can see them all below.
Community Recipes and Photos
We're continually inspired by the pictures that our community share with us, whether it’s trying out new recipes at home and letting us know how it went, or sharing photos of their own creations, fresh fruit and veg or their kids getting busy in the kitchen.
Here are just some of our highlights from 2012:
• La Tavola Marche I ❤ Root Vegetables - Fresh picked from our garden!
