Implementation: participatory discussion, mind mapping, group assignment
Requirements: whiteboard/flipchart with markers
Step one: Participants create a mind map of the ingredients they need to prepare the selected dish, dividing them in categories (fruit, vegetables, cereals, dairy, meat, fish, spices, other).
Step two: Participants are then divided into groups to review the selection.
Step three: The facilitator distributes the recipe to each group for them to compare what they identified with what is required.
Step four: Groups then share their feedback, provide recommendations how to make use of seasonal and budget-saving materials, as well as share experience with preparing similar dishes.
Step five: The facilitator assigns the ingredients each participant will be responsible for supplying.
Vegetarians will be highly aware of seasonal materials and it will be easier for them to come up with ingredients for dishes containing fruit or vegetables.
The preparation of a dish that does not require cooking will be time-saving, but not necessary include less ingredients. It will be although easier to organise the cooking space (room).
