COOKING WORKSHOPS AGAINST FOOD WASTE
We are on a mission to share knowledge about sustainable food culture and to mitigate social isolation in our cooking workshops, while tackling the environmental impact on food waste in Denmark.
- Food waste is responsible for about 10% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Consumers are not entirely aware of the fact, that every product we save from waste, has a positive impact on our climate.
- In Denmark alone, we waste 700.000 tons of food yearly – on that account Grandma Sita’s primary mission is to raise awareness about this concern while promoting sustainable and healthy lifestyle.
- Our workshops are designed for cooking from scratch plant-based meals while working for a greater cause saving the world from food waste and spending quality time together. In addition to that, it will rouse a dialogue on climate change and inspire action.
- Nothing can stop us from sharing Grandma Sita’s know-how about sustainable cuisine – join us for an enjoyable experience online!
We invite you on a journey, where we will guide you to enjoy our authentic plant-based recipes by learning how to cook from scratch with local seasonal produce, food rescue, leftovers and upcycled foods.

GRANDMA SITA’S SUSTAINABLE CUISINE
Sustainable diets are defined as those diets with low environmental impacts that contribute to food and nutritional security and to healthy lives for present and future generations. These diets are protective and respectful of biodiversity and ecosystems, culturally acceptable, accessible, economically fair and affordable, are nutritionally adequate, safe, and healthy, and optimize natural and human resources.
LOCAL SEASONAL PRODUCE
Seasonal food refers to the times of year when the harvest or the flavour of a given type food is at its peak.
Local food is food that is produced within a short distance of where it is consumed, often accompanied by a social structure and supply chain different from the large-scale supermarket system.
Food rescue is the practice of gleaning edible food that would otherwise go to waste from places such as grocery stores, produce markets facilities and distributing it to local food programs.
Leftovers are foods remaining unconsumed at the end of a meal which are eaten later.
