Green Drinks: Induction Cooktop Demonstration

Emilie FlynnNews

Our latest Green Drinks was a great success, with around forty people attending to see (and taste!) the benefits of induction cooktops. Geelong Sustainability would like to extend our enormous thanks to our cooking expert Mayan Rowling for sharing her expertise and creativity with us. By popular request, she has also kindly shared the recipe she used for the stir fry. Thanks also to Beavs Bar for hosting us, our dedicated volunteers, and to everyone who attended the night.

We talked a lot about the benefits of induction cooktops, and there was a lively discussion around the topic. If you’d like to learn more about induction cooking and the benefits of going off gas, check out Sustainable House Day’s Going off Gas seminar and Open House day. If you can’t make the seminar, consider becoming a financial member to access all the recorded content from the weekend.
