SAMESH still can’t hold their monthly cooking class for PLHIV and older LGBTIQ+ folk in person, so here are some more recipes for you this week.
Our inaugural cooking class guest chef, the illustrious GK, made this chicken dish for the special Feast Festival cooking class – you may have even been there. A tasty meal which is ideal for warming you up on these cold nights, with chicken and noodles! You could also swap out the vegies for what you have on hand.
This week’s vegetarian option is comes from Paul’s kitchen: delicious spinach and fetta parcels, for a meal or snack. These use only four ingredients, from the panty or freezer. Or you can use fresh home-grown spinach. An economical dish, they can be frozen for later if you don’t eat them all!
In lieu of SAMESH’s face to face cooking classes for PLHIV and older LGBTIQ+ folk, Paul has been developing and trying our recipes again this week.
This week Paul’s savoury course has a retro twist – perhaps you can serve it in ramekins! You can use any kind of mince you have on hand, including your favourite vegetarian alternative. It is an easy dish that you can make for one or more people.
Be creative, add what ever vegies you enjoy or ghave on hand. In this recipe you can use gravy mix, spice mix you have bought, or your own handmade blend. It
can be made ahead of time and re-heated or frozen for future use.
This is a simple yet delicious recipe that is tried and tested, from the Tasmanian Esk Valley. You can make two and spread loads of jam and cream between the 2! You can also add shaved chocolate to the frosting for even more chocolatey goodness. It can even be made and frozen. Who doesn’t love a good chocolate cake (as long as you can come by some flour, which seems to have appeared back in the shops again!).
During this time when SAMESH can’t hold their monthly cooking class for PLHIV and older LGBTIQ+ folk in person, Paul has been busy creating recipes for everyone to try,. This week he made an old favourite – stuffed capsicums, and also tried (and approved) a new dessert – strawberry shortcake.
The capsicums can be easily adapted to vegetarian using lentils or your favourite meat alternative, and the dessert can be made using frozen strawberries as well as fresh.

IPPF have created the new resource pack: A sex-positive approach in Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights programming for youth.
Please start with opening the toolkit which provides additional guidelines on how to use the resources. The toolkit is interlinked with the videos and the presentation hence going through the manual will navigate you through all materials available.
Sexual health and reproductive health are closely linked, but crucial aspects of sexual health can be overlooked when grouped under or together with the domain of reproductive health.
In order to create broader awareness of comprehensive sexual health interventions and to ensure that sexual health and reproductive health both receive full attention in programming (including provision of health services) and research, the World Health Organization (WHO) has reviewed its working definition of sexual health to create a framework for an operational approach to sexual health.
The framework, which is intended to support policy-makers and programme implementers and to provide a stronger foundation for further research and learning in sexual health, is presented and described in full in this brief.
