Welcome to River City Cookery

We’re so happy you found us, welcome to River City Cookery!

River City Cookery was started by two Professional Home Economists, Elisabeth and Melissa, to share our passion for food and food skills.

We’ve noticed in our own lives that people don’t know what to do with food. We buy foods and ingredients, often for a single recipe, and have no idea how to to use it again. We want to help you gain confidence in the kitchen by both improving your skills and knowledge¬†about food and cooking.

In this space we will share trustworthy information about food and cooking as well as some of our favourite recipes. We hope to one day expand our offerings to include other materials such as e-books, online courses, and in-person workshops.

To celebrate the launch of River City Cookery we are giving away a copy of one of our favourite cookbooks – Homegrown by Mairlyn Smith! You can enter to win your own copy using the widget below.

  1. Good luck on your endeavour! I am looking forward to your content. I am always looking for new recipes and tips – particularly focused around quick meals, one pot meals, or make-ahead type dishes. I’m not sure if you’re going in this direction, but would love to read about using local ingredients (and even growing them!).
