Southampton Society for the Blind is having a cooking day hosted by Penny Melville Brown (www.bakingblind.com) on Wednesday 5 September. Penny won the prestigious Holman prize for innovative idea of taking Baking Blind across 6 continents. Sessions are videoed and published through her blog, social media and the Holman network across the world. As Penny says – ‘You don’t have to be blind to cook but it helps: extra sounds and smells, touch and tastes! Our ways of cooking may be different – because of where we live, what we can grow or what we can buy – having a disability doesn’t really matter. Food is the true universal language that breaks down barriers and brings us all together – no matter who, where or what we are.’
Steve, Kate and Sue will be cooking with Penny and are cooking Jamie Oliver Easy Chicken Pie and a Sri Lankan Beef & Tamarind Curry followed by a Coffee and Walnut Cake. All will be videoed and shared across social media. A special thank you to www.seasonedpioneers.co.uk for donating the spices.
