March newsletter

Well we are heading off into March with spring just around the corner. It already seems like spring here in the Cowichan Valley, I think we skipped winter this year, perhaps we should cross our fingers and hope it stays this way.

Amanda is busy planting in CCK’s plot at […]

January Newsletter

I was looking back at our newsletters from last January and February and was reminded of the goals we set for ourselves. We had planned on staring up 5 new kitchens this past year but unfortunately not only did we not succeed in this but we lost two – The Honeymooners in Honeymoon Bay – […]

December newsletter

Merry Christmas!

Christmas is upon us and like everyone else we are busy making plans. Some of our kitchens will be having their usual Christmas bake while others will be doing a combination cook/bake.

Our Cob Oven managers are planning a Winter Solstice gathering on December 21 at the Cob Oven in Centennial Park. Hot […]

November newsletter

We’ve just finished a busy month. We teamed up this month with Cowichan Greens Community for the Culinary Festival on October 4th at our Cob Oven/Kitchen in Centennial Park. The event was made possible by a grant from the Koerner Foundation. This grant also made it possible for staff and clients to attend three workshops […]

October Newsletter

Happy Thanksgiving & Happy Halloween

We’d like to remind everyone of the Culinary Festival on Saturday October 4 at Centennial Park between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

We have no news and like they say no news is good news.

Since it is pumpkin and squash season I am going to share one […]

September newsletter

Would you believe we have had the Cob Oven/Kitchen for a year? Last September we held our Pizza Bake to Christen the oven, we have had three more since then. The Kitchen has proven quite popular. We’ve had several bookings since the warm weather began this past spring.

Amanda is our booking “agent” and she […]

July newsletter

Summer is here (officially 3 days from now) and some of our kitchens will be having thee last cooks this month. Three of us have decided to continue through the summer or at least part of it.

Many of us have been preparing salads and other summery dishes these past two months. One of the […]

June newsletter

It’s not officially summer for another 25 days but you wouldn’t know it by the weather. We’ve had some wonderfully warm weather lately and we at Community Kitchens are hoping it continues to the end of this month (I’m writing this on May 27th) since we have been asked to bake pizzas at the Cob […]

May newsletter

We have completed our stats for April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2014, and we found we cooked less this year than last. The good news is that this is probably due to fewer people needing our services, as we have lost one of our original kitchens this past year.

The Honeymooners in Honeymoon […]

April newsletter


Another winter is over and I hope you are all enjoying the longer days and milder weather.

We have a few new members in two of our kitchens otherwise everything is pretty much the same. Since there is no thing new to report I will use this space for two recipes […]
