What we do
Support Food Banks with our Canny Cooking recipe books
Slow Food Aylsham have produced two simple, easy-to-follow, recipe books, Canny Cooking 1 and 2, to encourage those who receive food parcels to get the best out of their rations. It costs just £5 – all profits go to Aylsham and the North Norfolk Foodbank.
The 24-page, fully illustrated handbooks, compiled by SFA members was donated to Aylsham and Cromer Food Bank to give away to customers who are reluctant cooks but keen to try, or students leaving home for the first time.
To order, please email Slow Food Aylsham for details.

Slow Food Aylsham campaigns for a better way to eat, celebrates the rich food traditions of the area, and works to protect our edible biodiversity. We encourage local producers, chefs and businesses to help people think about the food they eat and how it’s cooked.
It has become an important part of the local community. The three-day annual Food Festival every October is our showcase event when we work with local producers, chefs and businesses to help promote all that is good about local food.
We enjoy a presence at the Aylsham Show, held each year on August Bank Holiday, where our activities include educational, but fun, activities for children and adults.
Throughout the summer months, together with our sister organisation Cittaslow Aylsham, we hope to be in the Market Place on Farmers’ Market day (the first Saturday of the month).
And to help people find locally produced, fresh and seasonal food, see our Local Food Map and find a local producer near you.
We need your help so we can continue to promote all that is good about local food.
