By Anna Pitt / February 8, 2019 / 0 Comments

  One of the things I’ve learned from working with numerous schools is that students feel they want recycling to become much more prominent in schools. They say that recycling bins are often tucked away in the corner of the room and don’t stand out enough. Students request “They should be bright colours and look…

By Anna Pitt / December 28, 2018 / 0 Comments

I was asked by my local council to make some short videos to help people reduce their waste over Christmas, and get more from the food they buy. The spike in food waste at Christmas is a big worry for councils, who have to pay to dispose of our Christmas excesses. Turkey pie for dinner…

Pumpkin Pie

By Anna Pitt / October 29, 2018 / 0 Comments

I spent years avoiding pumpkin pie as most recipes I’ve seen are full of cream, which I can’t eat. But when I went for dinner at The Roebuck, in Borough, South London, with head chef Jareth Mills, that changed. Jareth, who contributed two recipes for Leftover Pie, had specially made a pumpkin pie for me,…

Last weekend when the weather was still cold and miserable, we had our usual roast dinner on Sunday evening.  We generally plan to have leftovers, that we can use up throughout the week.  On Tuesday I foraged in the fridge for some lunch and found the leftover veg.  I thought it was odd that there…

Last day of term at my daughter’s house and we had nothing much left in the fridge. A bit of cabbage, an onion, some broccoi stalks and a bowl of peels and veg offcuts: onion skin,  parsnip peel, carrot peel, potato peel, the ends of the parsnip and carrot, the end of a courgette and…

Store cupboard tomato soup

By Anna Pitt / March 3, 2018 / 0 Comments

I’ve just walked down to my nearest shop to find, not surprisingly given the beastly weather, there’s no fresh produce left. So I thought I’d post this nice little winter warmer made entirely from things most people have in their store cupboards. I would always recommend having a stock of a few tins of tomatoes…

By Anna Pitt / January 11, 2018 / 0 Comments

Yesterday, I had my first talk of the year.  I was invited to speak at The Bush Club, a volunteer-run weekly lunch club for the over sixties in Bampton, Oxfordshire. This is the third time I’ve been asked to speak there. On my previous visit, I demonstrated one of my family favourites for Sunday lunch dessert, a Tiramisu…
