Love Food Fareham

Whatever food you love, there are lots of ways to make the most of it and avoid waste. Why not try these recipes, shared by Fareham residents?

Derek from Fareham cuts French Bread Sticks into thick slices and freezes them. They make delicious crunchy toast and you do not have to set your toaster to defrost, just toast from frozen. Cut them at 45deg bias for a slightly oval bigger slice.

Pupils at St. Columba C. of E. Academy, Fareham, visited residents of sheltered housing at Buckingham Court and White Lodge Gardens, Fareham. The elderly residents shared their recipes and tips to avoid wasting food, and the children used their computer skills to share these recipes.
