As part of our GULP project had a wonderful food share and work shop at the Mulch Pit in Rapid Creek this November for Eat Local, Feed Global Oxfam campaign that highlights the craziness of our food systems and how eating local can help others further away!.
We loved the use of local eggs in the great frittata style dishes and will be popping some recipes like this on line and in the book-
There were also some amazing curries and of particular note was one that used entirely plants from the garden as the paste- lemon grass, Thai basil, kaffir lime leaves, limes and I think even the green paw paw (the main ingredient) was local and the coconut milk. This was made by Fiona and we decided took the prize- a fair trade food package wit local harvest! (Fiona Left, Emma- GULP- right)
Louise also made a great curry, but someone at the market had made the paste for her (mainly local though)
And Lucy’s salad was quite remarkable, the use a typical savoury root veg. (sweet potato) with pineapple, coconut and herbs and a splash of oil. Delicious!
A wonderful evening of many in The Mulch Pit….more coming up and recipes to be put at http://www.GULPNT.com
