Edible EcoUnderground Turns Sustainable Cooking into Summer Fun
Who ever said you have to give up quality of life to eat sustainably? In fact, it’s the opposite‚ and Food & Water Watch‚ partner chef, Chef Rocky, can prove it. Whether you’re just venturing into the world of healthy, sustainable cooking or have been home-canning since before it was cool, our new Edible EcoUnderground site is full of recipes, advice and fun tidbits to help turn your summer meals into fun and delicious experiences.
The Edible EcoUnderground starts off with a 10-week sustainable summer cooking school. Each week, Chef Rocky will pick a fresh, seasonal ingredient and share recipes of his own creation‚ and then we hope you’ll share your experiences with trying them out! The cooking school is divided into three levels of expertise: “cooking for nourishment” is for those who are curious but not very experienced in the kitchen; “cooking for pleasure” will be fun for intermediate cooks; and “cooking for transcendence” will challenge and satisfy kitchen pros. You’ll also be able to write in to Chef Rocky‚ cooking advice column and check out charts and guides to get you started with and .
Finally, the summer will end up with a contest to Take Chef Rocky Home for a Day! You just have to tell us why you are the best candidate, and, if you’re chosen as the winner, Chef Rocky will come to you and help you plan and throw your own Edible EcoUnderground dinner party! Check here for more info on the contest.
We hope you’ll join us in the Edible EcoUnderground, try out the fun ideas, and let us know what you think! Happy cooking!
