Is Natural Wine Pop Up presence on May 21 at London International Wine Fair 2013 (May 20-22) influenced by the fact that for a couple of days the event has to share the London wine stage with all natural wine all the time Raw Fair (May 19-20).
Some of the offerings:
"Les Caves de Pyrene will host this Pop-Up, with a selection of over 50 wines from its own portfolio as well as others, both available in the UK and also seeking distribution. Producers will include critically-acclaimed biodynamic Rhone estate, Domaine Gramenon; Pheasant's Tears from Georgia; Villalobos with their Carignan made from "wild vines" in Chile and Jura's Philippe Bornard, whose reds and whites are made without sulphur. There will also be wines made in qvevri and amphora; orange wines from extended skin contact; sparkling natural wines made in the ancestral (pre-Champenoise) style, and other gems from a multitude of different terroirs and rarely-seen indigenous grape varieties."
Heard it through the grapevine for Green Day # 250
On my Monday run, I was going down 8th Street towards Central Avenue in Newark and noticed that a formerly garbage strewn vacant lot on corner of 8th Street and 11th Avenue had become a vegetable garden.
Looking for greener ways to celebrate Easter from jelly beans (don't choke on them) made without high fructose corn syrup to organic-fair trade (and sensibly packaged) chocolates and ended up slipping on a banana...sort of...
Visiting Equal Exchange for their latest chocolate news, i found out that they also sell bananas from El Guabo in Ecuador and Cepibo in Peru.
As a recent piece in The Guardian noted, some food choices (Vegan, Vegetarian) are not that earth friendly as ingredients loved by its practitioners often come from far away and in some cases (quinoa) become unaffordable for local populations because of the price inflation caused by demand abroad.
With that in mind, I looked at what is in season in March.
All vegetables (in Europe), they are green cabbage, cauliflower, leeks and the faddish kale.
