Pumpkin Disco Chop

A kitchen disco with a twist

To celebrate Halloween, and the traditional influx of pumpkins, we are hosting an online Disco Chop on Wednesday 28th October. You can join our kitchen disco with a twist on Facebook Live from 6.30pm via @alchemickitchen.NW. This will be the first Disco Chop that we have held online, usually we hold events in  communal spaces, guests come together to dance, cook and eat. Despite the change in circumstance, the Disco spirit lives on. This year the disco is available through a Spotify playlist (Pumpkin Disco Chop) and a hearty pumpkin soup recipe which you can cook alongside the Alchemic Kitchen team via Facebook Live. We will be cooking a delicious Italian inspired Rachel Roddy recipe. Ingredient bags are available to residents in Liverpool, Sefton and Knowsley. Just get in touch with [email protected] to request a delivery.

Pumpkin food waste

We are all becoming incresingly aware of the issues surrounding pumpkins and food waste. According to Hubbubb, millions of pumpkins that are grown for Halloween go un-eaten and end up in landfill. Pumpkins are not only delicious; they are also packed fully of vitamin A and antioxidants. Instead of chucking out the pumpkin flesh and rind why not try making pumpkin pie or pumpkin gnocchi? The options are endless! Head over to alchemickitchen.org for recipe inspiration. This event forms part of Your Food Needs You and is funded by Merseyside Waste and Recycling Authority Community Fund. Alchemic Kitchen’s parent charity is Feedback Global who are working to regenerate nature by transforming the food system. You can read about their work at www.feedbackglobal.org
