A couple of people have asked me how the cook up works. I’m chuffed (which means very pleased in English slang!) as it’s the first one and I wasn’t sure who’d want to join in 🙂 So here it is put simply. A community cook up that you can do in your own time with your own twist. Then come share the meal here so we can all see what you’ve been doing inside the (in my opinion) most beautiful room of your 4 walls. Come join in, if you fancy!
Want to cook along with me on this dish? If you fancy some company and inspiration in your kitchen, the #ancestralcookup is for you. This first one is Beef & Barley Stew. Click the link in my profile and you’ll find a template recipe and all the details you need to make a tasty, comforting, super-nutritious meal. I’ve written it in a way that makes it easy for you to cook along in your own home no matter what ingredients you can get hold of, no matter what your family can or can’t or like to eat. I’d love it if you want to join in, cook up and show me what you make!
The first online #ancestralcookup will be Beef & Barley Stew. I’m just writing it up and will have the details ready tomorrow. If you’re enthusiastic about real food and fancy joining a group of at-home cooks in making this dish over the next 2 weeks, I’d really love to have you cook a long. It’ll be super-flexible; you can use the ingredients that suit you. And it’ll be really tasty – we’ve eaten it 3 different ways the last few weeks and been super-comforted and nourished by it each time.
Are you an enthusiastic home cook? Would you like to cook along with other stuck-at-homers to a recipe you could easily adapt to what’s in your fridge? I’ve been feeling a little isolated in my quarantine kitchen so am working on Ancestral Cook-Up, a bi-weekly community cook where I’ll share a tasty, traditional foods recipe template that we can all have a go at. I’d love you to cook it with me and share your pics and thoughts. Check the link in my bio for information – I’ll be posting the first dish in the next few days.
