Healthy eating is proving a popular pastime in Sharrow, where the community’s latest cook-along evening attracted a record turnout.

This month’s event, at Old Sharrow Junior School, headed for the sub-continent, with a chance to learn authentic and healthy Pakistani dishes.

Chef Chris Hanson, of well-being shop Shipshape, organised the event in partnership with the Creative Action network.

He said: “This month we made a delicious, low fat tandori chicken, a simple and healthy dhal, a tasty salad and rice.

“The sessions are all about people learning interesting ways to enjoy a healthy, balanced diet, meeting new people and learning more about different cultures.

“All cooking abilities are welcome and we also provide a fun, food-based activity for any children that come along.”

The next healthy cook-along is on Thursday, February 24, 6-8pm, when the subject will be tapas. The March event, on Thursday 24, will focus on south Indian food.

Entry is £2 for adults and £1 for children, including all ingredients needed to make a range of dishes. For more information call Shipshape on (0114) 250 0222 or email chris.hanson@shipshape.org.uk.
