Food, glorious food! It's wonderful to see so many cooking shows on television these days; I believe that it's having a positive impact on most peoples' culinary experiences. I don't know the stats, but I'm pretty sure that the rise in home cooking has increased over the last few years.
Thanks to the ever increasing amount of celebrity chefs, gourmet cooking has entered more kitchens in Australia than ever before, and introduced a greater variety of ingredients into our meals.
It's also getting easier and easier to find organic ingredients. We've listed some stores, that stock these, here in the Green guide, including: organic wines, organic produce, and even a list of restaurants that are now catering for the eco-conscious diner.
Bon Apetit and remember:
- Buy seasonal produce - it's better for you, it will save you money and help save the earth.
- Try to reduce the amount of meat that you eat in a week
- Purchase Australian seafood and watch out for fish farmed produce.
- If you can, buy organic
- Plan your menus and buy only what you need. it will help reduce waste.
- Get a compost bin or worm farm.
- Cook more meals from scratch and avoid the lazy cooks alternatives (frozen dinners, meals from packets and jars, and yes, that includes cake mixes)
