Town Cooks

 

Town Cooks is an exciting community-based project based on the food we cook and eat every day. Each month Health Connections Mendip will share a recipe that anyone and everyone can cook and eat at home. The recipes will be seasonal, healthy, easy to cook and good for the environment. We want to support local food networks and food producers by making the most of the season and the food available locally. We’d like people to talk about what they are cooking and eating, we know that having a shared interested is a great way to feel involved and a part of the community.
