About The Event

Danny will be donating royalties from the sale of each book will be donated back to The Good Kitchen in Sicily.

After twenty years of volunteering and working in food-focused social enterprises, Danny McCubbin launched a community kitchen in a remote town in Sicily called Mussomeli. Every week Danny rescues surplus food from the supermarkets and then puts that food to good use cooking for vulnerable people of the town and delivering meals to the elderly who are alone.

Danny shares the pivotal moments of his journey, the life lessons, the human connections, and the food and recipes behind it all since opening the Kitchen’s doors in July, 2021. Simplicity is at the heart of every meal, cooking with vegetarian surplus food of all kinds – proving that delicious meals can be prepared from the most inexpensive ingredients.

Danny provides recipes from The Good Kitchen that stay true to the rich Sicilian food tradition while being adaptable according to the ingredients available. He also shares various hints and tips on reducing food waste, which comes as second nature to most Sicilians. The book offers inspiration and advice for anyone who has dreamed of creating a grassroots project with social value.

The book features recipes from Danny’s friends and supporters, including: Jamie Oliver, Stephanie Alexander, Anna Jones, Gennaro Contaldo, Fabrizia Lanza, Antonio Carluccio, and Ali Noor.

Our event space is wheelchair accessible via a stair lift. Please contact with any additional access requirements and/or questions.
