New Initiative Calling for Merseyside Women to Showcase Traditional Recipes from Liverpool and Around the World
MEH are currently looking for women to participate in this all female FREE project!!
ALCE (Appetite for Learning Comes with Eating) is an exciting new European project that will deliver a culinary training programme for women across Merseyside UK, Italy, Austria, France and Lithuania. ALCE project is seeking participants!
The project led by Merseyside Expanding Horizons (MEH) targets local women over 60 years old and young BME women between 18 and 40 years old and will facilitate non formal learning through food to help break down social isolation by encouraging intercultural and intergenerational dialogue within a European community of women.
The majority of training activities will take place over 6 months at the Joseph Lappin Centre, Old Swan Liverpool. The sessions will allow participants to explore and exchange traditional recipes and natural curative remedies from different cultures. There'll also be opportunities for the women to lead local cultural events and share learning with women from the other partner countries during European events.
A book showcasing recipes and remedies presented by women from each country will be produced in celebration of the project and a training manual on innovative approaches to stimulate inter-generational and intercultural learning will also be developed.
The learning sessions include the following activities:
- Exchange of knowledge on food, culinary traditions and healing methods on the basis of natural plants
- Learning mobilities (travelling to other cities and countries)
- The organisation of cultural events
- The conception of a book with personal recipes and healing methods connected to food
- Establishing principles for effective intercultural and intergenerational knowledge sharing
