Local Trout Meal

On Friday 23rd September Food4Macc Direct organised a trout meal and cooking demonstration at “Belong” care home on Kennedy Avenue, Macclesfield in conjunction with Phil Shaw from Fork-2-Plate.

Phil is a fully trained and experienced chef and showed us how to cook fresh Wincle trout in 3 different ways.

Everyone got to try their hand at preparation- and eating. All the ingredients, where possible, were sourced locally, of course!

First Annual Food4Macc Show

Our first show of local produce was a big success with over 50 entries in thirteen categories, and coverage in the Macc Express. Held at the All Hallows catholic College Romero Centre, the emphasis was on fun as opposed to being too serious. Many thanks to Sara (picture above with the winner of the most unusual shaped vegetable) for coming up with the idea and making it happen. Thanks Also to our judges for giving their time to some tough choices.
