** Cooking firsts:
Made my first marmalade. It’s funny considering I teach preserving, but I’m not a fan of marmalade although I’ve been told this one is absolutely lovely thankfully!
Made my first gnocchi
Made my first tofu
Made my first loaves of bread
Taught loads of classes included our jams, pickles and preserves masterclasses and a new Edible Gifts masterclass. I never take enough photos! We also did a cooking project with older people in high rise housing, taught pop up classes in Collingwood and Fitzroy at a range of venues from pubs to bookshops, share houses and aged care facilities.
Lots of projects including a Green Renting Expo for people living in social housing, private rental, rooming houses etc in Redfern, Sydney; a food waste program for a Chinese mothers’ group and their kids; a community leadership program in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne (still going).
Holidayed and spent Christmas in Far North Queensland:
