9th February 2016

Personal thoughts from the Festival Director - not necessarily endorsed by the Festival Organisers.

Notes for the Month - January, 2016

Tweet Pie
I have just revisited a little book called Tweet Pie. Published by Belling, with profits going directly to FoodCycle (the charity that aims to help tackle food waste and poverty across the UK), the book contains 50 recipes in tweet-format - i.e. a maximum of 140 characters. I had a load of tomatoes from the market on Christmas Eve and here is my attempt at a recipe for soup to deal with them. What about writing one youself and sending it to me.

Sweat garlic/onions in pan, add diced potatoes and many tomatoes. Low heat 5mins. Add water/veg stock & simmer 30 mins. Sieve/season with salt/pepper.
