Whole Larder Love

Zoe Bowden - Wednesday, July 18, 2012

I love food…I love the idea of cooking it and then eating it. I have also recently added growing it, into the mix too. I am a newbie…I am not that good…but I definitely like to read & learn from people who are good.

Cue, discovering Whole Larder Love…firstly…the NAME….I mean…how is that not the BEST NAME EVER for a blog about food & foraging? Damn clever…

Secondly…the blog is brilliant…I am a stickler for good photos of food (thanks to my brother James who seems to take bloody good photos of food – and everything else!) and this blog has them a-plenty…makes me hungry just looking at the photos…

Anyway…I can’t say anymore…you just need to look at the blog yourself…enjoy a cuppa and a nice slow read of the lovely ideas/rants/recipes etc…

I love a happy blog discovery! Especially one about food!

Forest Feast

Zoe Bowden - Monday, April 23, 2012

Forest Feast is a blog that makes me hungry…

Created by Erin Gleeson, a girl who moved from the city to the country and who creates the most beautiful photos and visual recipes…yum…

So simple, so clever and so yummy…

I might have to go and cook something now – I am hungry!

Spring has sprung in the woods! Passover is this week and to kick it off, we hosted a first-night Seder.  We spent 2 days cooking all the traditional Jewish dishes: Matzah ball soup, Haroset (a paste of dried fruit and nuts), Farfel (quiche-like squares), Tzimmes (a sweet potato carrot dish), plus a roasted chicken with rosemary and lemon. The seder plate has items that represent different parts of the meal and the Passover story of slavery and freedom, including a hard boiled egg, horseradish, parsley, matzah, a shank bone and the modern addition of an orange. In this story of Exodus, when the Jews fled Egypt, they didn’t have time for their bread to rise, so this week we eat matzah instead of bread as a reminder that there are still people today who seek freedom.

This salad is so simple and colorful. Just slice or chop 2 carrots, 1 purple cabbage, 5 radishes and 2 blood oranges. Toss together with a handful of golden raisins. Make a simple dressing of olive oil, balsamic vinegar and the juice from one more blood orange. Use a couple of the outer cabbage leaves as bowls for a pretty look. A wintery citrusy delight!Photos and Illustration © Erin Gleeson
