Fairtrade Fortnight Zero-waste Hero Bananas Cookery Class

Why Fairtrade Bananas are the Top Zero-Waste Hero Cookery Class for Kids

 Join Wholefood Chef Rozanne Stevens of Susty Kids Cooking Club for a fun and interactive online cookery class of sweet and savoury zero-waste banana recipes. The class is designed for kids aged 9 to 13, with family friendly recipes that are perfect for breakfasts and lunchboxes.  

Rozanne runs an online cookery club called Susty Kids which teaches sustainable, Earth friendly recipes and cooking skills to primary school kids. This Fairtrade Fortnight class includes more of her academic work around sustainability and bananas in the food service industry.  

Bananas are a top-tier fruit bowl and lunchbox staple in many households. We love bananas for their deliciousness, portability and great energy boost on busy days. But did you know that they are a secret weapon against domestic food waste?  

They can be used in tons of different ways to use up other foods, help ripen rock-hard fruits and vegetables and even the peels can be turned into a tasty relish! They truly are the best Zero-Waste Hero at home. 

The class comes with an eBook of the banana recipes, fun banana facts and zero-waste tips. Choose one or two of the five recipes to cook along with on the day and refer back to the replay when you want to make the rest.  

Rozanne Stevens Bio

Wholefood chef, cookbook author and cookery tutor, Rozanne is probably best known for her South African accent winging its way across the Irish airwaves. 

She has taught over 10 000 people how to cook, from the keen amateur to the aspiring chef. Her recipes and philosophy focus on plant-strong recipes with global flavours, a little bit of ‘something something’ to elevate each dish.  

In 2019 she set up a zero-waste test kitchen and research institute, Noosphere, in collaboration with Dublin City University. Noosphere works with universities around the world on sustainability models to prevent food waste, improve air quality and reduce water and energy consumption.  

Rozanne has turned her skills and experience into running online sustainability workshops for climate conscious companies, community groups and local libraries. Her passion project is an online cookery club for kids called Susty Kids. Susty Kids (which means sustainable) teaches sustainable, Earth friendly cooking skills for primary school children.
