Back in September when the sun was shining, Open Jar spent a few days cooking with the lovely growers and local families at the Concrete Garden and Back Garden in Possil Park. We were exploring what you can make with different types of flour, learning from different cultural traditions. Using the freshest seasonal produce from the garden we made steamed Chinese dumplings, pasta with nasturtium pesto, empanadas baked in the wood oven, not to mention bannocks and corn on the cob cooked on a fire at the Harvest Celebration. It was all pretty delicious and we’re really excited about starting our weekly Global Canteen Cookery Group that will be running on Fridays from 23rd October.
Global Canteen Cookery Group
Fridays, 23 October – 11 December, 12.30-2.30pm at The Concrete Garden
Each week we will harvest fresh produce from the garden, share recipes, learn new cooking skills and enjoy a tasty lunch together.
