Support local producers, be mindful of where your food comes from
You will find the tools to help you cook more sustainably and to shrink your carbon footprint.
Nature’s bounty is so rich—over 30,000 edible plants are available on Earth. However, we rely on about 30 of them—and 3 crops alone provide humanity with nearly 60% of our calories: rice, wheat, and corn. We’ve been missing out and it’s time to incorporate more plants in our lives.
At the end of this course you will be able to:
– Make pulses, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, fungi, and algae the star of your dishes.
– Diversify your culinary palette with over 30,000+ varieties of edible plants available
– Avoid food waste by consuming plants from root to leaf.
– To celebrate local and seasonal foods, learn to adjust and swap out ingredients.
– Highlight nutritional quality of local and seasonal.
