I’m writing this the eve before Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day (May 15th- sign the petition), I just returned from a trip to Australia for a wedding and I haven’t managed a shop for three whole weeks… And yet I’m going to cook. Usually I would always say get the freshest most local ingredients possible but food revolution day is about inspiring people who don’t usually cook, who may think they have limited skills in food prep or knowledge of nutrition and who may have different ingredients in their cupboards/ pantrys/ freezers. Well I’m here to say “we all start somewhere”. I’ve burnt water before, I’ve messed up whole meals and cakes (omg don’t get me started on the amount of cakes I’ve messed up!) BUT don’t let it get you down, hell, I still burn things, not as regularly these days but it happens to all of us. All those botched meals are worth the experience of making your own healthy, tasty meal and then plucking up the courage to make a meal for someone else… Imagine the look on someone’s face when they truly love what you’ve cooked! And not just that but imagine all that plastic and packaging you’ll save from landfill by cooking with fresh ingredients instead of processed packaged food in turn not allowing as much waste!! It’s a feel good moment… So give it a try, even if it’s not this recipe, you can start anywhere.
We hope you enjoy this recipe and if you want to see what we really look like check us out on YouTube (and SHARE SHARE SHARE) you can see footage of us and watch us turn this blog into a tv series in Italy by following us on Facebook (farm2face), twitter (farmtoface1) and Instagram (farmtoface) you can see all the behind the scenes stuff soon too! 🙂
