Coaches' Kitchen is about gathering around in our virtual kitchens, crying over onions, exchanging stories, asking questions, and enjoying the company. Everyone is welcome to join in with the cooking if you feel up to it, or you can simply put your headphones in and pretend you're not alone in your house for a couple of hours.
For LGBTQ+ History Month, we bring to you Coaches’ Kitchen: Queer Kitchen edition
A delightfully bizarre attempt to unearth truths and create some delicious queer food. Sometimes we eat queer food - food that does not seem mainstream, but yet is. It is OK, you can eat it. Come out of the food closet.
What is queer cooking? Often this queer food sits at the back of the cupboard, unknown, underrepresented, food that lacks critical acclaim from foodies, but is most nutritious indeed.
“Queer food is not the ingredients, the cooks, the diners, the labels — it’s in the make.” (Fitzpatrick, 2018)
Basic: Tin of beans, Regular large potatoes (5-6 of them), white bread, butter (any kind - soya, cow, vegetable).
Extras (please do not feel pressured, this will be delightfully random): Regular granulated sugar, chili powder, cumin powder, an in date singular egg, spirulina powder, mould-less blackberries, brown sauce, tomato ketchup, back of fridge coriander dregs, out of date pineapple chunks. Anything you have in your cupboard. Honestly, this is going to be experimental.
Please join us for some cooking chaos.
