When a friend told me about plans in motion to start ‘food saving classes’ in Camden, I went to visit 58 year old Julie Todd’s home. Along with lifelong friend Jo Bloomfield (55), Julie is whipping on her apron and heading back to school in order to show the people just what’s what in their food cupboards! Julie has been hosting ‘food-saving’ dinner parties for more than 2 years, and is currently on the hunt for the premises to start a series of fun but educational food classes for anyone who wishes to learn. They plan to have a ‘zero tolerance’ policy to food waste, and hope to instil these values into their teaching.
Back To Basics
‘You read an awful lot online about storage advice and different food saving strategies, it can be very confusing for someone who isn’t particularly knowledgeable about food’ Jo says, ‘and the truth is, sometimes it just takes someone experienced to show you the ropes, offering face to face advice and hands-on experience about how to prepare and cook food in a more efficient way. That’s what we’ve been offering our friends and family for the past couple of years, and that’s exactly what we’d like to bring out and share with the public.’

The pair hope to start the classes in time for Christmas 2015. Hopefully Santa will find Jo and Julie’s no waste fruit pulp cookies (pictured below) as tasty as I did! Keep checking this page for details or tweet us @finderseaters_ for more information.
