Black Gold - A Room 11 Manaiakalani Film Festival entry

How futile and what a waste!  Everyday millions of tons of valuable food waste and garden waste gets dumped in landfills - causing major environmental issues.  Then we go out to garden shops and waste money by buying compost for our gardens.  Room 11 will show you ways of turning your trash into cash.

Festive Foods- Roti and beans

If you cook a spicy  butter beans and potato curry and have it with roti, you will certainly not miss the meat. Its yummy, easy to make and healthy for you too. The best part is its so affordable.
Students took home a recipe  and some curry masala and cooked some awesome dishes over the weekend. At a time when food costs are so high, its time to get families cooking.

Making Roti is so easy

Many people think that making roti (flat bread) is difficult to make, but we learned first hand through making it, how simple it is. All you need is a cup of flour, 1/2 cup of hot water, a pinch of salt, a bit of oil and some good rolling skills. We ate our roti with a butter bean and potato curry which was finger licking delicious.

Turn a boring can of beans into a tasty curry.

Butter beans and potato may sound boring as a meal but add a bit of curry masala and wow! its finger licking good. We cooked a meal in class and students were amazed at how few ingredients were needed to cook a yummy curry. It wasn't a meat dish, but boy , was it awesome?
