FAQs

Are you a cookery school?

No, we’re not a cookery school. We might occasionally offer some teaching on topics such as: low-sugar baking; waste-free meals, and vegetarian/plant-based recipes

Do you promote veganism?

No, and we’re not affiliated to any vegan or vegetarian group. However, we love growing, cooking and eating fruit and vegetables. We also recognise that meat, especially beef, has a massive carbon and water footprint. (Air-freighted fruit and veg also have huge carbon footprints). Professor Mike Berner-Lee’s book ‘How Bad are Bananas’ provides data on the relative carbon footprints of our food choices
