Collaboration creates kitchen community

CLARENCE City Council has collaborated with its local partners to create and publish 10 short ‘how to make’ recipe films focusing on 10 easy-to-find Tasmanian vegetables – seasonal, canned and frozen.

Originally created by the Child Health Association Tasmania’s Family Food Patch program using a 26TEN grant, the Kitchen ABC123 toolkit features recipes for a variety of dips, soups and side dishes appropriate for everything from introducing solids through to aged care.

The recipes were designed to build confidence, knowledge and foundation skills in the home kitchen, especially when working on tight budgets.

Family Food Patch and its Well Fed Tasmania food truck partners, the Tasmanian School Canteen Association, teamed up with four Rosny College film students to create the two-minute videos designed to build confidence and foundations skill in the home kitchen.

“Seeing these recipes come to life has been really rewarding,” Family Food Patch program manager Emma Rowell said.

“They were always designed to boost literacy and numeracy in the kitchen.

“Being able to now visualize the steps and techniques and match it with the words on screen makes them even more universally useful.”

Mayor of Clarence Alderman Doug Chipman said with the closures of local restaurants and cafes there had never been a more important time to be able to make nutritious meals at home.

“This has been a fabulous collaborative project working with great community partners,” he said.

“It has been wonderful to work with the students, and to be able to deliver a tailored and helpful end product in these difficult times.”

Tasmanian School Canteen Association executive officer Julie Dunbabin said the videos were a great asset to many in the community.

“The videos are a great resource for all Canteen managers in their role of providing nutritious and yummy food to school children,” she said.
