We know that its not Christmas yet but here at the Inkwell Community Kitchen, we are always planning our next set of cooking sessions. In the New Year, it’s back to basics whilst learning to get to grips with your slow cooker as well as giving the gift of food.

It was all about Gingerbread last night – there were stars, trees, men and women! Great time had by all and I’m sure you’ll agree some great creations.
A big Thanks to John who came in yesterday to teach us how to bake Bread! Some amazing results as you can see from the before and after shots.
As the weather has definitely turned chilly, today’s Basic Cooking Session was all about Soup! We made Carrot & Coriander, Leek & Potato, Mushroom, Lentil and Curried Parsnip & Apple as well as some delicious Soda bread. Everyone was pleased with what they made and went home with plenty of goodies!
Whilst the weather seemed to put most people off our Pizza and Pasta cooking session this afternoon, for those who attended it was a great couple of hours! Pasta with chicken, Creamy Courgette Pasta Bake and Tuna Pasta Bake were on the cards, as well as pizzas topped high with meats, vegetables and cheese (just a sprinkle of course).
Cakes with Vegetables in them! Vegetables, I hear you say! Everyone knows about Carrot Cake, but what about Chocolate Beetroot cake or Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cake? Well that’s what was on offer at tonight’s Inter-generational Baking session. Everyone was pleasantly surprised; with the comment of the night being ‘I can’t believe the chocolate cake had beetroot in it’!
We also made some scones whilst waiting for the cakes to cook!
5 families came along to the ‘Cupcakes and Scones’ baking session on Saturday, and from the results, I think they enjoyed themselves. Black food colouring proved popular – maybe we should keep that idea for our Halloween baking session.
Don’t forget there is the Family Cooking session where we’ll be doing Pizzas and Pasta – contact email@example.com to book your place.
Although Bonfire Night is a month away, Guides from the 6th Elgin Girl Guides pack were in the Kitchen last night making some Bonfire themed cupcakes. Everyone enjoyed themselves and as you can see the results were amazing! We may be stealing this idea for the Hallowe’en baking session which will take place on 27th October 7.30pm – 9.30pm – email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place!
Getting ready for our coffee afternoon in aid of MacMillan! Elgin Youth Cafe 1pm – 3pm. See you there!
