Gathering the Harvest - Low Carbon Cookbook - 11 October

Last month the Low Carbon Cookbook crew met at the Friends Meeting House for a Kitchen Conversation at the FoodCycle Cafe. Our meal and discussion came just after watching The Shock Doctrine at Little g's first film night and it was hard to concentrate on the niceties of domestic food waste, after watching the violent way Chile, Argentina, Russia and the UK had been chewed up and consumed by the voracious appetites of the Chicago School of Economics.

The food however was delicious and the atmosphere very buzzy in its spiritual surroundings: Thai nut curry with rice and mixed salad and organic bread, followed by a knockout blackberry and apple crumble, served with a seriously industrialised Dream Cream (ah, the perils of freegan food!)

This month we are celebrating a year of low-carbon cooking and sharing and talking about everything edible and grown (including the kitchen sink) with a harvest meal. We are also deciding now how to cohere all our findings and get down to our winter work of Writing The Book.

If you would like to contribute to this TN project or come along and find out what we are up to do get in touch Charlotte Du Cann rootsshootsandseeds@hotmail.co.uk
