Youth Space Cafe

Last Wednesday we started with a group of enthusiastic youth, to prepare and serve food at the Youth Space in Palmerston North.  We made a healthy organic lentil curry on rice.  We also produced coconut carob chip ice cream and more almond, coconut and vanilla ‘macaruffles’.  We meet at the Youth Space every Wednesday from 3:30pm until 5:30pm, especially for ages 13 to 19 however it is always great to have extra helpers.

Freyberg Highschool Cooking for Credits

During the last week of the school holidays Hands-On Food took a food technology class for years 11 and 12.  After a practice run on a similar project, the students made a vegan cheesecake from beginning to end with absolute silence and Naomi marking as she walked the room with a clipboard – intense.  But loads of fun and the students involved all say they would do it again.

As a result we have a number of Strawberry and Peanut Butter Salted Caramel Vegan, and where possible Organic, Cheesecakes for sale.  Also at reduced prices of $45 per whole cheesecake and $25 per half cheesecake.  Or simply come and sample a slice for $5.  We will be in The Square on Tuesday the 13/10/2015 from 11am until 4pm.  Look for the white trailer (looks like a horse float) with the red canopy.
