As a special treat to you all we are pleased to announce the release of the Museum Development North West, Green Museums Recipe Book.
This recipe book, which can be seen here, came about because cake became a recurring theme during the Green Museums programme in 2014-15. Plenty of cake was eaten, alongside plenty of discussions about food miles and the availability of ingredients.
As a result of all of this, we gave the delegates the task of coming up with sustainable cake for their graduation day. Local, seasonal, free range and Fairtrade ingredients were sought, food miles calculated, ice caps and polar bears were made and unconventional baking methods were tried out.
This cookbook features are some of the recipes they came up with, and they show that there are always seasonal ingredients to hand to turn into sustainable, thought-provoking (and tasty!) cakes.
Museum Development North West are now winding down for the Christmas break, but we will be back at full force on Monday 4th January.
We wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, & hope you all have a fantastic New Year.
