November 2017: Christmas Masterclass
With the change in seasons has come the desire to trial new Healthy Ageing activities to keep older people motivated to cook. The NZNF ran its first Masterclass cooking programme in November 2017 designed to give people fresh ideas for cooking summer or Christmas meals. The class was a triumph with over 30 participants enrolled to watch trained chef and nutrition graduate, Rachel Titchener prepare and cook a 3-course celebration meal. Participants enjoyed fabulous food, good company and a generous “goodie” bag courtesy of corporate members. Programme evaluation has shown that people want more of this style of learning.
Here is one of the recipes from the Christmas Masterclass for you to try:
TO ASSEMBLE – just before serving:
Cut the figs in quarters. Spread ½ teaspoon of pesto on each crostini and top with a fig piece. Press a small piece of feta onto each one. Garnish with a piece of toasted walnut and a fresh herb leaf.
