Thinking about mestizaje of food cultures

As we listened to 📻 👉🏼 Norma Listman talking on the mestizaje of food cultures in Mexico and Cali we found ourself putting a spoon of cruchy (do I need to say super organic) 🍴 👉🏼 peanut butter into our veggie soup. How interesting to think about how recipes change and adapt to what ingredients are available.

NATURE VIEW BRISTOL

And than we left Bristol behind and took to the fields, picked up blackberries and cooked them up to eat them with pancakes made of barley flour.

Close your eyes and think of England 🇬🇧

So, I said Adéu Barcelona, and got on a flight to Bristol.

 

Hello England! Season of croissants & tinto de verano is over now, fall came upon us and I will be sipping on organic, red bush, naturally caffeine free Earl Grey with Hemp milk sweetened by honey from Essential Trading Co – operative.

Real feel?

En serio?

So I did a lil shopping therapy in a grocery store.

Aw rite good stuff but walnuts from California double packed in plastic? Why a proclaimed eco – conscious grocery store stocks this product? I really wanted them but immediately felt regrets about it. Hopefully the walnuts will promote some brain health for me!

Out & about

Little reminder, life ain`t bad when you see this on the way to buy sustainable sourced eco Nesquick.

Casa Vincent is one of Gaudí`s earliest works. Currently under reconstruction to be opened for public for the first time as a museum this fall.

 

My shopping is from Veritas, a store hated by some for riding on the wave of Barcelona`s gentrification and loved by others, you know the story. Should I have walked couple of meters down the road to the co – op? Yes! Am I happy my juice has no sugar and my cereals have no chemicals? Yes!

Lessons from the streets

Ressist, re-use, occupy … I guess this aimless wandering around and pretended job hunt has been good for something. I am now shopping from a co-op. No mo plastic bags! I`m so stoked.

Hammock life in Barcelona

hammocks outside

I`ve been missing Central America for some time now and this place could just throw me over the edge. There are hammocks here! Living the crazy life from a hammock is my thing!

Good selection of Juices and Smoothie bowls. It`s a bit on the not that cheap edge but it is definitely yummy. Too much plastic for my liking tho and no wii fi.

Grandma`s cooking

My granny doesn’t believe in a meal without meat and meat less, let alone animal free lunch is just outrageous idea! C` mon! You gotta eat something!

But grandma ….

“Theres only one egg in the cake, one egg is not going to kill you!”

But grandma …

So we looked deep into our “heritage cuisine” and  in the end we agreed on “Halušky” a traditional Slovakian “mountain” meal. Made of finely diced potatoes mixed with flour and boiled, served with fermented cabbage.

The original version is not animal free, granny just had to deal with it! But I came for more and that made her happy!
