Instant Banana Ice Cream

This is recipe for a quick fruit ice cream has been loved by everyone that has tried it on our Love Food Hate Waste cookery classes. We all must have had a surplus of bananas at one point in our kitchen, some just sit and get forgotten about, turning brown and squishy before we eventually just throw them away.  But did you know that you can freeze a banana?!  A great practical tip that we covered in our classes, following…

Mint and Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Mint and Chocolate Chip Ice Cream A bit of a play on a recipe with this one.  A superfood dessert which tastes like a creamy ice cream, but is dairy free and packed full of highly nutritious ingredients.  Excellent for when you need that sweet fix after a meal, or just at anytime of the day, but don’t want to load up on sugar. It should really be known as Banana and Spirulina Ice Cream, but it tastes like such…

Pimms Jelly

Pimm’s jelly dessert (SERVES 10) Everyone loves jelly, reason enough to include it with our favourite recipes, but it also makes the perfect make ahead pudding.  Especially when it’s slightly alcoholic(!) served with a cucumber sorbet, candied mint leaves and marinated cucumbers as we did for our Lamb Supper Club.  Slightly adapted from the original, we served our jelly in beautiful glasses, perfect for showing off those set raspberries and basil leaves that run throughout the jelly.   Ingredients: 700ml…

Jerk Chicken

With summer finally making itself known, it’s time to dust off those barbecues and start cooking al fresco. We’re lucky enough to have a fantastic earth oven at Edible Eastside, our Kitchen Garden, and a barbecue too!  So we brought down our community cookery class from Smethwick on a beautiful summers day and treated them and ourselves to a morning cooking outside, baking bread in the earth oven and even on the barbecue, absolutely delicious.  The star of the feast was…

Sweet Potato and Date Brownies

It’s Healthy Eating Week, which has inspired Bethan, our newest member of the team, to try a slightly different bake.  A healthy chocolate brownie, perhaps not the most obvious choice! The past few weeks has led to a lot of research into wellbeing foods, eating less sugar and the latest cooks to grab the nations eye, Deliciousy Ella, Hemsley & Hemsley, and Madeleine Shaw are but a few.  I found this recipe on Twitter (from Deliciously Ella), where else would…
