2024 Festival Dates: 6 & 7 July

Cracking Good Food

Roll up your sleeves and get peeling, chopping and slicing!


Join our FREE cooking workshops over the 2 day festival, with 45 minute sessions running throughout each day.

Useful tips about affordability, resourcefulness, seasonality, food waste, new culinary skills and much, much more will be shared in each session. As a result of your participation, you will be filled with nutritious wholesome food, all for FREE and plenty of information to inspire you to cook the dishes at home!

With food provided by Fairshare, licensed to safely distribute food discarded by supermarkets and highlighting issues around food waste – this mass participation cooking class will be the tastiest way to learn this weekend.

Ingredients, equipment, protective clothing and recipe sheets will be provided.

Please highlight any allergens to the team on the day.

Less Waste More Taste is a part of a larger National Festival of Making Outreach project, read more about it on our projects page here.
