Devon Chefs (VIDEOs)
Chefs Corner is about local food businesses working together. The project was funded and facilitated by the Council from Apr 2007 - Apr 2011. At the end of the project we asked the Chefs Corner members if they would like to carry on the project but manage cooking events themselves and they voted to do so. The current members are listed below. Contact Dan or Brian for further information on getting involved.

EAT YOURSELF TO HEALTH
The Chefs Corner project aims to promote local food, healthy eating and cooking skills at local community events. We should all think about reducing the amount of processed 'white foods' we consume and eat more whole foods, with plenty of different-coloured vegetables and fruit. We get more sustained energy and less damaging insulin in our bodies by eating foods with low sugar, salt and fat levels. By reducing intake of these three common ingredients, we also reduce the likelihood of getting Type 2 Diabetes, Coronary Heart disease and Cancers.

The Chefs involved in the project have made a commitment to give their time at local events. You can watch videos of the Chefs in action via the links on the left-hand side of this page. The videos on this site have been produced by Visual Link Web Media Services. If you work at or own a food business that is based in Torridge, are a local cooking enthusiast and would like to get involved, or simply want to find out where and when the next event is taking place, please contact Dan on 07970932566 or send him an email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
We have previously run events at RHS Gardens Rosemoor, Atlantic Village, Appledore Arts Festival and do regular cooking presentations at the Farmers Markets in Torridge.
