Red Herring’s Special Pampered Chef Evening 29th July 2010 at the Linden Center, Huntly
Pampered Chef: Nom Wright // Local vegetables: Huntly’s Harvest
NEXT RED HERRING’S PAMPERED CHEF EVENING: THURSDAY 26TH AUGUST 2010
My trip around the issue of foodmiles and footprint in the particular context of Huntly in Scotland is coming to an end.
Understanding this context is not just about a question of packaging, distribution process or processing route. The context which seems to me the most relevant to address is people and their perception of food. Before buying it, how do we comprehend it, how do we access it and how do we integrate it into our lives.
If there was no more shops, and we all had to make our own food, what would you do? I know many of you around Huntly are doing it, but what about the majority of Huntly’s population. How would you go about getting your food locally?
Who is your nearest farmer?
Where is your nearest vegetable garden?
Red Herring will conclude by taking your fridge to the nearby garden and look at how it could be filled differently.
