On 5th October 610.4kgs of chocolate was intercepted. Just consider the injustice of all that food going to waste, just because it was past its use by date!
Today we cooked a fantastic ‘rocky road’ dessert using that chocolate. The taste and appearance was just as good as any other. Plus, we still have more to use over the next few weeks.
Anyone remember that phrase? And how apt it is for TRJFP Cafes. We can’t plan the menus a week in advance as we can’t guarantee what food will be available. It takes a bit of skill to be able to create an amazing menu under these circumstances but Adam seems to do an amazing job over at Armley and our chefs are trying to emulate his skills.
So, watch out on our website and on Facebook tomorrow morning to find out what is being rustled up, and come and join us any time between 10am and 4pm.
And if you fancy a challenge as a chef why not have a word with Emma, we can never have too many chefs – can we?
