Clementine Sandison (artist, grower, and creative producer of Culture Kitchen) will be teaming up with Najma Anwar (passionate cook and volunteer with the Hidden Gardens Cultural Cookery Group) and Kathryn VandenBerg (community gardener and co-ordinator of SAGE) to embark upon an epic road trip around Scotland passing recipes from one community to another.
We are launching the Culture Kitchen Relay at The Hidden Gardens in Glasgow on Sunday 19 August, 12-2pm and will be visiting about 14 community growing projects, farms and local food producers, many of whom will be involved in hosting Blasda celebrations in September.
The focus of the recipe exchange is family dishes that have been passed down through generations and are based on local produce, including home-grown fruit and vegetables, foraged wild plants and berries, freshly landed fish and seafood, and locally farmed meat and dairy. And, best of all, we’ll be documenting all the cooking tips and stories that we hear along the way.
Highlights of the route include: Eileen’s Torta Pasqualina using organic farm produce from Ayrshire with Petrie Fine Foods, Nettle and Potato soup made by pupils from Dunbar Grammar School, Chilli and cheese oatcakes with Bread in Fife, Stovies with allotment potatoes in Huntly, beer-battered vegetables in Black Isle, Fish pie made with local prawns in Achiltibuie, Isobel’s carrageen (seaweed pudding) at The Orasay Inn in Uist, and a foraged wild food feast on the beach with Galloway Wild Foods to round the trip off!
The Relay will result in a collection of recipes and a series of photographs which will be exhibited at The Briggait as part of the Glasgow Blasda celebration on Saturday 15 September. For more info contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
