Annabelle

A mere fortnight after a bumper crowd had assembled for the Massive Scran Salon at Badabing, we were back to our usual, more modest format, with a return to Hemma for the usual first Monday of the month event.

Opening proceedings we had Annabelle from Mornings Reinvented, an innovative food workshop programme looking to redefine our relationship with food, not least breakfast. I’d been along at one of the workshops just last week, so know first-hand about the fun mix of practical learning and very slow eating that the sessions encompass. Details of upcoming events are available of their website.

Next we had Ruaraidh from Ror’s Kitchen. He told us about the inspriration he drew from Edinburgh chef Neil Forbes for his upcoming events. These will run over the weekend of 30, 31 October and 1 November. Make sure to check them out.

Then we had Pru from the Edinburgh Coffee Lovers, a great Edinburgh blog focussing on the joys of coffee. Pru told us about the highly successful Edinburgh Coffee Festival, which took place just a couple of days ago, highlighting the photo exhibition they directly contributed. Check out their website for lots of excellent coffee inspiration.

Finally, we had a call out from Emily from Fresh Revolution, who was looking for potential sites for a night market in Edinburgh. We’ve been working with Emily on this and haven’t found the council at all good to deal with in progressing things. It would be good to track down a sparkling private space to host the event, so let us know if you find somewhere.

And that was it for another event. All that was left was to highlight the following #scotfood Twitter chat which this month focussed on seafood. I rounded off with a mention that it is indeed Seafood Week running from 9 to 16 October, so I encouraged people to get involved in that.

Next month’s venue has not yet been confirmed, but we’re very much hoping to return to a place that was a real highlight of 2014. Stay tuned for further details!
