The average Irish family spends a whopping €569 on food in December alone.
Shockingly, almost one third of the food we buy ends up in the bin.
If you’re determined to avoid needless excess and food waste and make your food budget go further this Christmas, an upcoming class at Ballymaloe could be the key.
Debbie Shaw will host a workshop at this year’s Sustainable Living Fringe at the Ballymaloe Craft Fair on Saturday, November 17th.
‘Creating a Sustainable Festive Feast’ will offer the 101 on buying, prepping, cooking and re-using everything that’s left this festive season.
“My recipes are fresh, light, simple and affordable, and use whole foods to give the body what it needs for optimal health and happiness.” says Debbie.
“Health for me is not about sacrifice, deprivation or bland uninspiring flavours. My promise is easy to prepare recipes, full of flavour, that satisfy body and soul.”
All that and a significant financial saving on the big shop too? Sign us up.
Tickets for Debbie Shaw’s class are €27 and available to book now here.
