A short post this week.
The Climate Revolution team here at the studio have organised in conjunction with Camden Town Council, a day’s festival based around the idea of getting closer to nature in an urban environment. It takes place tomorrow.
There will be a bike ride which Vivienne is taking part in as well as an introductory speech she will be making & there will be lots of stalls & events to take part in.
Catherine Hamnett will be giving a talk about protecting bees & ‘Farm the city London’ will be showing how to get creative with urban gardening.
Check out these & all the other events on https://www.facebook.com/UrbanOutdoorFestival
This week we have some recipes for you. All through my life my mother has been concerned with healthy eating & she has always been an adventurous & delicious cook.
Maybe she got some inspiration from her mother, my grandmother Dora who was also a brilliant cook. Nothing complicated, just good eating (& Dora lived to be nine days shy of 93 before she died).
I remember when I was about eight that Vivienne got into macrobiotic food & there was always an iron pan full of brown rice in the kitchen with seaweed. She used to ask me to go out to the grass areas of the street we lived in, in London to dig up dandelion roots with a desert spoon & also to collect the leaves, as these were good for a salad. The roots were delicious when sliced & lightly fried to be eaten with the rice.
I wasn’t so impressed with the bread she made at the time as although it was tasty, she didn’t use yeast & it was hard as rock. It used to take ages to cut & chew it .
At about the same time we used to eat out at a restaurant called ‘Cranks’ in Macclesfield St which was one of the originators of organic eating. It later became ‘Wholefoods’.
About 20 years ago she got into the Haines diet which as far as I know was about not mixing protein foods with carbohydrates because the digestive enzymes concerned with each, clash & stop the body assimilating the food properly. No butter on your toast. No milk with your cereal (we had goats milk & butter instead).
We did eat meat at the time but it was always free range & organic. I used to get it once a week at the Wholefoods butchers in Baker St.
Now she is vegetarian & hardly ever eats grains of any kind. Uncooked raw foods are the best.
Whilst I was living on my own some years ago she quickly wrote down some simple recipes for me for a Waldorf salad, Guacamole, Coleslaw, a salad dressing & a few snacks (cucumber(sliced), carrot & Fennel(grated)). I thought that I would share these with you.
As mentioned on the earlier ‘Savages’ post I have two more videos supplied courtesy of Simon http://punkpistol-seditionaries.tumblr.com/archive , here is the second. Continue reading
