Another fun project started today: fermenting the exces grapevine leaves. So the abundance of grapes that are already growing (huge relief after last year’s debacle when we got none) will profit more from the sun. And we profit by getting more pickles. Double win. I also dry the leaves, for use in soups and stir-fries.
Trying to make ones life sustainable is more than a personal choice and almost automatically leads to a multitude of decisions you have never even thought of before. On this website we share what works for us, or woefully no longer works, obviously without claiming the same for you.
We hope that our journey towards a supplementary comprehensive celebration of nature’s beauty might just clear a pathway forward for you too, perhaps challenges a revealing reconsideration, or simply provides for an equally indispensable diversion.
Can we change the world through food? We believe we can and we support Slow Food, a global movement of local communities and activists across more than 160 countries. Together we defend cultural and biological diversity, promote food education and the transfer of traditional knowledge and skills.
