Thanks to Yinka for hosting a fantastically fishy feast amongst fabulous art (see above) at his place in Bow.
An eclectic mix of old friends and newcomers, we kicked off with a smogasbord of fish treats from Phillipa’s homemade potted mackerel to Kasia’s Russian herring salad.
Mains included a Samoan fish and sweet potato stew, a ‘fake’ tuna bake (for the resident veggies), and Manuel’s banana leaf wrapped fish and crabs – ready to be hand cracked.
We were all full but everyone made room for dessert as Ptolemy’s Alaskan blackberry cake and sorbet took centre stage. Alex’s Facebook pictures are here, Alison’s are here and Sephira’s are here.
Thanks to everyone for a wonderful evening.
Feast by the light of the silver full moon… at Alison’s in Kennington this Friday night.
Urban folk are invited to share a cuisine of vegetarian delights during a moon-struck, moon-touched, super-natural evening. With celestial views across the metropolis – north and south, east and west, come and commune with magickal powers, werewolf spirits and the creative feminine lunar-forces!
‘Early peoples believed that the moon made all things grow and governed all life-giving moisture. Its changing phases were associated with the coming of rain, as well as the torrents that produced floods. The moon’s fertilising power governed not only plants and animals, but human beings as well. It was believed that women who slept beneath the rays of the moon would become impregnated by them. Thus, as early humankind developed cosmogonies and mythologies, the deities associated with water, fertility and fecundity were also associated with the moon. Some farmers still believe that crops sown near a full moon will be ready for the harvest a month earlier than crops sown during a waxing moon.’
Your Food: from germination to imagination; food for the night and the moon, for earthly friends …something ancient, something seasonal… (Enough for 4)
A roll of silver foil: to make a form, a moon, and a star, to cover a body, a vessel?
Wear something silver: be shimmering, bring glamour to the night…
