Good quick tukka: cook it, plate it, share it

 

Overview

The aim of the Good quick tukka (GQT): cook it, plate it, share it program is to increase the number of meals being prepared at home among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The philosophy of the project is to increase cooking skills, and to have fun gathering, preparing and consuming nutritious meals. A unique aspect of the program is to pass on the recipe to family and friends at home.

Objectives of the GQT program include:

The GQT program is a 10 week program but it can be adapted to suit the needs of the community.
