This year has been transformational for Alchemic Kitchen. We have chopped and changed more times than we thought possible all so that we could continue to repurpose surplus food and help our neighbours with food deliveries and workshops. 

We are so proud to be part of @knowsleykitchen, a wonderful collaborative partnership of community organisations, social enterprise and independent businesses, all working to build a sustainable food future for Knowsley founded as a response to the pandemic. 

Nobody quite knows what 2021 will bring, we're probably in for a bit of a bumpy ride. What we do know is that with the support of our amazing partners we can rise to the challenges ahead!

#YourFoodNeedsYou #EatYourPumpkin #tastenotwaste
Join us for a Pumpkin Disco Chop on Wednesday 28th October. This will be the first Disco Chop that Alchemic Kitchen has held online, usually events are held in a communal space, guests come together to dance, cook and eat. Despite the change in circumstance, the Disco spirit lives on. This year the disco will be 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. DM for details.

#tastenotwaste #EatYourPumpkin
Every year approximately 8 million pumpkins are thrown away after Halloween. When did we start buying food with the intention to throw it out? Don’t let your pumpkin go to waste this year. It’s time to get creative, and we’re not just referring to carving. Why not try to make your own pumpkin spiced latte or have a go at making pumpkin pie? The options are endless. Tag us in your pumpkin creations.

To celebrate #WorldFoodDay we are teaming up with @organicnorthwholesale, the longest-run organic wholesale in the North. They are a co-operative who operate on a #zerowaste model, managing to source the highest quality organic produce from across the UK and further afield without creating mountains of food waste. Sean Ruffell, managing director, will be joining us at 4 to discuss, the importance of valuing food and having close relationships with farmers. Not to be missed!

Today is International Awareness of Food Waste day! It is the first time that an entire day has been set aside to focus on an issue that we all contribute to and all have the power to change. Our project #yourfoodneedsyou focuses on ways to help you to reduce your household waste.

 In last the last year alone households in Liverpool, Sefton and Knowsley generated 85,759 tonnes of #foodwaste. A figure which we can all help to reduce by only buying the food that we intend to eat and making the most of the food we have at home.

Want to take part? We will be running online food labs for the next year. The next event is a Pumpkin themed disco chop taking place in the October half term. We will be releasing the full details soon. In the meantime head to Alchemickitchen.org for recipe rescues and project updates.
