Climate Exploration Cookbook
Climate Exploration Cookbook: Workshop Registration
Food and climate change are inextricably linked. From food miles to farming methods, food poverty to crop failures to demand for out of season ingredients– what we decide to cook can really make a difference to the planet.
We are calling for Chinese Londoners interested in cooking, Chinese food culture and climate change to join us for 3 delicious workshops, exploring what we can do to tackle the climate crisis through our cooking and eating habits. We will experiment together to create a series of low carbon cooking recipes that reflect our collective identities and the different histories of the Chinese diaspora in the UK.
Join 2 virtual workshops led by Ling Tan on 23 June and 30 June from 6:30 -7:30pm, and a physical workshop on 10 July from 1-2:30pm at the London Chinese Community Centre in Chinatown. Together we will develop 1-2 low carbon cooking recipes by modifying popular Chinese dishes through re-inventing ingredients (e.g. cutting down meat), looking at different cooking methods and tackling food waste. At the end, everyone will interpret and cook the dishes in their own kitchen and then share it with each other while reflecting on our experience
No expertise is required. Covid safety measures will be in place for the physical workshop or you can choose to attend virtually.
Climate Exploration Cookbook is a pilot project by Ling Tan, commissioned by Chinese Arts Now and Season for Change.
