Thoughts from March 2012

forgotten feast

Our friends at Forgotten Feast have lined up another fantastic event for fans of good food and great company. Next Friday 9th March at 7pm, they'll be serving up an elaborate Moorish banquet made entirely from surplus produce at The Russet, Hackney Downs Studios.

Surplus food is delicious, healthy produce that hasn’t made it into the shops because too much was ordered, it’s in the wrong packaging or it’s just a bit wonky. And by coming to this event you'll be saving food that would otherwise go to waste, and also helping raise awareness of the problem.

You can get tickets here, and £1 from each meal will go directly to FareShare which will in turn help feed 4 hungry people. Everyone will be sitting together for the meal, so come with friends or come alone and make new ones. All make sure you come hungry, as there's plenty to go around.

the cosby sweater project

We really like jumpers and so does the dude who made this website. The Cosby Sweater Project shows you all of the lovely jumpers from the show, along with a hand drawn remake of each and every pattern. It even has a sentence to help us remember what was going on in the episode. Marvellous.

We would love to own a few of these, especially the one above, what a beauty.
