Connecting Community and Food

We launched URBean EATING on World Pulse Day 2022 as a portal for sharing stories of how we're beginning locally and thinking nationally about public health using UK registered Beans (URBeans) as the starter ingredient.


Together with community partners, we'll be closing-the-loop between food preparers (cooks and bakers) and food producers (farmers and gardeners).  These are early steps in changing our food culture and our food environment from the ground up.

Local chefs shared recipes featuring Godiva urbeans in a food tasting event organised by 'Tales from Coventry Tables' to celebrate in Coventry's year as UK City of Culture.   Guests at home booked for the online event with many choosing to collect a food Taster Box beforehand to eat-a-long with the online show. The box contained four taster pots of recipes cooked by the chefs featuring beans grown at the University of Warwick research farm.  Recipes included an ‘Almost Naked’ bean dish; a Ugandan/Gujarati fusion curry; Libyan beans with couscous; and a sweet bean bread with bean butter.
