Raw and Vegan choices at Hither Green Week

May 16, 2012

The Annual Hither Green Week commences on Saturday afternoon with a Craft, Music and Food Fair from 12-5pm. My Kitchen Buddy stall will be stocked with delicious Chocolates, a brand new chocolate cake, raw crackers and Cubes and the famous Pear & Mango Pie!

I baked the first trial new Chocolate Cake yesterday; it is a great success. Finally, I feel I’ve made a cake to delight one and all, using new coconut palm sugar: a far healthier sugar variety 🙂 

So far, I made 4 dozen cubes, orange and ginger chocolate, Signature halva teardrops, Millionaire Shortbread with Cherries + trial cake. Tomorrow … Pizza and crackers.

Also looking forward to seeing the Beauty in the Beast book talk with Hedgehog expert Hugh Warwick, in town in the evening. He’s a lovely author.  At the Idler Academy here:


Wild Food Foraging Walk

April 23, 2012 My first group outing this year includes the following: A 2 hr guided walk through a local nature reserve and woodland as part of ‘Hither Green Week’. The collection of wild foods: Identify and taste local wild herb varieties and learn about their culinary and medicinal uses in salads, teas and tinctures. For old and new ecology, environment and nature lovers. Suitable for all ages. Complete beginners and current foragers welcome. We’ll discover the edible plants that this hidden haven has to offer. This outing combines the insights gained from personal, private and public tours which is made possible with thanks to: Effat (Iranian Wild Food expert), Rob Hull (Funky Raw) and Tim the ‘Wiltshire Wizard’ amongst others, inc my flora and fauna loving parents to whom I owe my early interest in science and medicine 🙂 Imageme out to play
