Sim­ple recipes for healthy liv­ing

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS - Tim Slater

A MO­BILE kitchen to en­cour­age peo­ple to cook healthy meals from scratch and save money, rather than opt­ing for take-away food, will be in Bel­mont next month.

The Jamie’s Min­istry of Food West Aus­tralian mo­bile kitchen will be set up in the Good Guys carpark on Alexan­der Road.

It will de­liver hands-on ba­sic cook­ing classes for seven weeks led by a team of ded­i­cated food train­ers.

“The pro­gram teaches Jamie Oliver’s hints, tips and ba­sic home cook­ing skills in an ef­fort to en­cour­age peo­ple to cook from scratch with fresh food,” a spokes­woman said.

She said about one-quar­ter of all deaths in Aus­tralia were the re­sult of diet-re­lated dis­ease, with only one in 10 peo­ple eat­ing the rec­om­mended daily serves of fruit and veg­eta­bles.

The pro­gram is be­ing run with Edith Cowan Univer­sity.

The van has pre­vi­ously vis­ited the ECU Joon­dalup and South-West cam­puses.

ECU deputy vice-chan­cel­lor Co­bie Rudd said the course was help­ing to build life­long skills.

“We see a range of ben­e­fits, in­clud­ing pre­ven­tion of chronic dis­ease through health­ier eat­ing,” Pro­fes­sor Rudd said.

Good Guys Bel­mont store man­ager Josh Rimunui said he was ex­cited that the mo­bile kitchen was com­ing to the City.
