Championing local

Curry Collective

In addition to my previous comments about Paul Khan, I learned more about his involvement with the Greenhouse Project in L8 and how food has linked two Liverpool communities. Paul has supplied his own unique curry pastes to L17 residents throughout lockdown. His own Pakistani-African heritage has allowed us to sample new, exotic flavours which have enlivened our tastebuds. Each week he supplied us with a different paste and recipe suggestions. We have all shared photographs of our dishes on WhatsApp, accompanied by lively banter. It has strengthened our neighbourly relations and made us appreciate one another more.

In the attached video, Paul discusses the Greenhouse Project which in these difficult times is providing a community with essential food and life skills. The project teaches children and young adults cooking skills, provides essential safe-play and sporting opportunities.
