A London based community Local Trust initiative, Elthorne Pride, launched a series of YouTube cooking tutorials during lockdown in 2020. Munch With Us is a new video series featuring cooking tutorials which aims to keep residents of the Elthorne Pride area, based in Islington – North London, active with a focus on food and nutrition. Elthorne Pride was established with support from the Local Trust Big Local, and consists of a partnership board, made of up of member representatives voted by residents and volunteers to deliver projects and activities based on feedback and demand from its residents.
Following the success of the Elthorne Pride food delivery project during the covid-19 lock-down, which was managed with the help of volunteers the Elthorne Pride Partnership Board wanted to offer more online activities for residents.
Many residents had asked about recipes that they could use which inspired Elthorne Pride to put together a series of YouTube tutorials. The series will feature easy to follow cooking ideas which not only include healthy eating but highlight creative and tasty food.
This is such a great idea and an inspiration for other community groups around London and the UK.
Here’s one of the YouTube cooking tutorials available on the Elthorne Pride YouTube channel with a recipe from Belinda at Marli’s Kitchen: Plantain and Black Bean stew
Marli’s Kitchen is a vegan food business on a mission to get carnivores to eat vegan food by creating vegan soul food! You don’t have to be a vegan to enjoy these recipes and the recipes created for Elthorne Pride are an affordable introduction to vegan cuisine.
