Veg Box Newsletter 24th February: Lookin’ Cool, Kale

Hello Folks, The green kale we get from chapel farm, and the green kale we’ll soon have again from our very own Locavore farm, isn’t much like the kale you get in the supermarket. It isn’t shredded, but whole leaves. They curl beautifully, looking very much like an ariel photo of some wild green hills…

Veg Box Newsletter 17th February: Unbeatable Beetroots

Hello Folks, Beetroot is a precious thing. It’s dug up from the earth, all rough and dusty. Cut it open and it gleams like garnet. This week, we have golden beetroot in the boxes. Well, the clue is in the name: it shines inside. When you eat beetroot, you can taste the soil it’s grown…

Veg Box Newsletter 10th February: Can’t Stop the Carrot

Hello Folks, As luck would have it, I am munching on a Locavore carrot as I write this. Pulled just days ago from the damp soil of Chapel Farm, it is sweet and crunchy, having somwhow turned the scant North Berwick sunshine into plenty of orange brilliance. It is carrots to which I think we…

Veg Box Newsletter 3rd February: Fun With Onions

Hello Folks, Let’s continue our tour of the underappreciated staples and turn our gaze to the humble onion. An onion is a game of pass the parcel for one. It is a package of flavour wrapped in brown paper. When you unwrap it, the flesh is pale and translucent. Raw, it is fierce. It adds…

Veg Box Newsletter 27th January: Potatoes! Potatoes!

Hello Folks, Potatoes. I love them. They aren’t the most glamorous of veg (that is, of course, the artichoke). What they are is delicious, and also versatile. They go well with any other veg you can think of- certainly everything that’s in our veg boxes this week. You might just have to experiment with them…

Veg Box Newsletter 13th January: Just Call it Joy-nuary

January can be so glum and dour but there’s a joy to be found in eating even the grey seasons. Perhaps we’re all getting a little tired now of the root veg, the beetroot and celeriac and sprout tops and what not, but that is inspiration to be a little more creative.

Veg Box Newsletter w/c. 2nd December: the calm before the storm

Hello Folks, Today was a beautiful day, with a clear, blue sky and frosty ground. Veg Box HQ looked ethereal in the clear afternoon light. It’s almost December, which, let’s face it, means it’s basically Christmas, so I know all the whirl and rush is about to start. I love Christmas, and even the hustle…
