Fantastic night in the kitchen recently with some supporters of the Famous Aberdeen Football Club. The 'Fit Fine!' classes in the kitchen have been organised in partnership with AFC Community Trust as an extension to the 'Football Fans in Training' course.


They made roast butternut squash and red pepper soup. It was delicious, healthy, and cost very little to make. Next week we will be making a chicken curry.

We have included the recipe below. You can also download it by clicking here.
