The FoodFutures Closing Loops project is launching a recipe challenge that invites everyone in North Lancashire to share their favourite recipe for a North Lancashire Menu. 

Along with your recipe, we’d love to hear the story behind it. Who taught you how to cook this recipe? What do you like best about it? And could it be considered a North Lancashire One Planet Recipe? If yes, why?

What is a One Planet Recipe? 

A recipe could be a One Planet Recipe because it is good for the planet – for instance using seasonal, locally produced and organic ingredients. Or it could be influenced by international cuisines and use Fairtrade ingredients. Perhaps these ingredients were transported by ship to Lancaster rather than plane?  It could also be something really easy to make and budget-friendly, using ingredients from your local cornershop, or your kids’ favourite way of eating vegetables.

The terms ‘One Planet Recipe’ or ‘One Planet Menu’ can be confusing to some and it is open to interpretation. If you have suggestions for other terms that describe this, or other ideas about what makes a recipe a One Planet Recipe, we’d love to hear about them. 

Submit your recipe by 31st January 2022 to be in with a chance to win one of three £25 local food vouchers. 

Your recipe will also be considered for publication in THRIVE, North Lancashire’s community food magazine. 

The winners of the recipe challenge will be announced in March 2023 at Lancaster’s seasonal market.

How to submit your recipe:

  • By email to by email
  • By posting it on social media, mentioning #ClosingLoops #NorthLancsRecipe and FoodFutures North Lancashire
  • Or you could also post it to: Closing Loops, LESS, The Storey, Meeting House Lane, Lancaster, LA11TH
