Liam is a 15-year old, Chef-in-Training. His passion for all things food-related began at an early age, and by the time he was 10 years old, Liam had already started his own food blog, spent his time visiting chefs, bakers and farmers, and learning how to cook.
As a “little locavore”, Liam was inspired to learn that over 90% of the food of the food rescued by Second Harvest is perishable and nutrient-dense, such as fresh produce, dairy and healthy protein.
Over the last few months, we have seen generous donations of potassium-rich potatoes, aromatic onions and crunchy carrots, at the Second Harvest warehouse, and we asked Liam to create a simple recipe with these ingredients that we could share with our agencies (and you!).
Here is the recipe for Liam’s Easy Peasy Potato Croquettes, a fun treat for the whole family to enjoy and a great way to get kids involved with cooking and talking about the importance of access to nutritious food for all.
Serve as breakfast, lunch, or a snack with your favourite dipping sauce!
We hope you have a fun and safe March Break!
