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 Cromer 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.
Come and join us
Slow Food Aylsham campaigns for a better way to eat, celebrating the rich food traditions of the area, and protecting our edible biodiversity. We work with local producers, chefs and businesses to help people think differently about the food they eat.
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 run a monthly series of cookery demonstrations in the Market Place, featuring top local chefs.
And to help people find locally produced, fresh and seasonal food, see our Local Food Map and find a local producer near you.
Slow Food Aylsham is an individual membership organisation, a branch of the international Slow Food movement.
