An interactive spring workshop with the World Food Programme

Join us for this online cooking workshop talking through the season of spring and the fresh herbs and vegetables that it brings.

There will be recipes, tips, methods, stories and experiences of cooking during the coronavirus crisis.

Omved Kitchen’s very own Arthur Potts Dawson will be facilitating along with guest contributors, chefs, gardeners and global advocates for the World Food Program. During this interactive event you are invited to cook along with Arthur. You will have the opportunity to ask questions along the way.

Chef Sophie Godwin will demonstrate and talk through one of her delicious recipes that she has been cooking for the NHS Key workers during this lockdown period.

OmVed’s Head of Holistic Urban Growing, Vicky Chown will be discussing small scale and urban farming’s influence on food systems and health. She will also be showing us some seasonal herbs and vegetables that are available to us this spring, providing insight into their individual properties.

Chef Manal Al Alem will be joining us from Dubai to cook a fresh dish using ingredients from her own garden, as well as talking about her work as Chef Advocate for the United Nations World Food Programme.
