I’ve just read that local food kitchen Made In Hackney has been nominated in the Best Educator category for the Urban Food Awards. Excellent news.

Made in Hackney

I’m a big fan of this project that educates the local East London community about sustainable, affordable diets, and recently wrote about my visit to the Made In Hackney kitchen for Transition Free Press.


Doing my best to avert my eyes from Food For All’s tempting shelves crammed full of colourful spices, nuts, dried fruits honeys, teas, herbal remedies, pulses, grains and the like, I headed down to Made In Hackney’s eco-kitchen to be greeted by a cornucopia of cooking equipment that leaves nothing to be desired. Upcycled plates, bowls, chopping boards, and weighing scales line shelves made from reclaimed scaffolding planks; comfortable bottom-sized stool cushions made from old hessian sacks pile up in the corner; and standing proud in the centre of it all is a black hob island made from melted-down coffee cups.

If you fancy reading the full article, head here (p.18).
