Garden to Table : 10 years on

From Nine To Noon, 11:30 am on 11 November 2019

It's been ten years since chef and food writer Catherine Bell co-founded the Garden to Table Trust, teaching children to grow, cook and share food.

Since then, 23,000 children, in years three to six, have been through the programme in 176 schools nationwide. To celebrate the milestone, Catherine Bell has written a cook book called Bounty for gardeners and cooks, with proceeds going to the Trust. 

She talks to Kathryn about the simple but powerful idea: teaching children where food comes from, how to grow and prepare it, and why eating healthy, fresh food is important.

She shares recipes for Parmesan Zucchini Steaks and Spaghetti with Rocket, Chilli and Ricotta.
