Falling into the soup - Low Carbon Cookbook - 28 February

“Wasn’t this meeting supposed to be the one where we got down to the business of actually writing the book?” said Erik. We’d been talking casually over potato curries and salads and Erik’s very tasty winter vegetable soup with pumpkin and lovage. We’d spoken about how meeting up monthly for the unwritten Low Carbon Cookbook had increased our awareness of food systems and radically changed our approach to food and our shopping habits. But it was coming up to 9 o’ clock and no one so far had mentioned the W word. To be honest we’d got a bit cosy.

So the three of us got up from Bee’s kitchen table and in the next hour came to an agreement to write something by the next meeting which we would then bring to show each other. Bee will write on the hungry gap and the carbon footprint of cooking, Erik on a calendar for home food growing and I’ll write about freegan and foraged food. All the low carbon cooks from past and present meetings are free to contribute - Erik will contact you about that.

Now, what to say about that freegan tofu… Mark Watson.
