Re: Food Revolution Day, May 19!

I baked a loaf of "pane di fiori" (hop flowers yeast), I was not sure it worked after two years, and it did! I brought it to the inauguration of a reconstruction of a prehistoric village, and handed it to the man who bakes bread in a hole in the ground, after making fire. He has a sort of earth pan now with two flat handles and a hole to let the steam go out, which can be put on the loaf as an oven. I hope one day I'll have one aswell. They have been discoveredby archeologists in Trentino on the Alps.
There were school children learning and listening to a friend of mine explaining the use of herbs, her husband teaching how to make tools from stones, another passionate ragazzo letting children discover things under sand and telling them how you do that without breaking or spoiling and and and
I felt good there sitting on a woodden chair near an open fire in a hut ...... so familiar to me, I would have stayed there waiting for something bubbling in a huge pan on the  embers smile
somehow I felt I was celebrating a good  Food Revolution Day

my pics do not want to appear on the blog section, so imagine them please wink

Re: Food Revolution Day, May 19!

Grandmadamada , that sounds a fantastic day and yes .. I can imagine that oven .. And I can almost smell that bread as it bakes !

I also had a good weekend as I went into Cardiff to see the food revolution event at Jamie's Italian  , they were making a huge 'Welsh Dragon ' picture from pasta .
The pasta , for the picture ,was being made outside the restaurant in the street for all to see  by one of the chefs . Children and passers by we're adding lengths of pasta to make the picture .
Sadly I could not stay and see the picture as it finished , but I can say I was there at the start!
I shall add pictures to my blog later today .
I had a lovely chat to Antonio, who was making the pasta and he spoke to me about the difference in the texture of pasta made with just water and flour compared to  that with eggs added to make the dough.

He also told me of the fantastic time he had had with Fifteen 15 year olds from a local school who had spent the day ,(earlier in the week ) at Jamie's Italian learning to make pasta , salads and bread . He told me about the way their faces showed complete concentration ,then joy and
excitement seeing what they had made .It sounded a lovely time.

Sunday , I went to give a bit of help taking leaves off herbs do that they could be used !

Re: Food Revolution Day, May 19!

Wow, I thought I had a busy Food Rev day but I seem to have been put to shame, especially by tstucky! I did, however, successfully poach my first egg, which despite being a decent cook is a skill that has evaded me for a good few years. FIt must have been the magic of the day!

I actually spent most of it chopping lettuce, but also going to bake sales and helping Danny out with his and Rocket&Squash's amazing pub lunch supper club.

I popped a blog up on here, as well as on my own blog (which can have more pics!) so have a look at what we all got up to at Jamie HQ.

Re: Food Revolution Day, May 19!

My update on the 3 Supper Clubs that we ran last weekend for Food Rev Day - such fun, hard work but very rewarding.
