WTF you might be thinking?! A spiralizer is a contraption that you put veg into and it comes out the other end spaghetti shaped! Ta-daaa. Favoured by the health conscious. Check out the picture - spiralized courgettes in a faux spag bol concoction. Nice.
Ideally we don't want food waste, but until that day happens, it's a good plan to put it to positive use rather than chucking it all on a landfill site. Graphene is being touted as a 'wonder material' that can help us become greener so if we can make it with food waste then that's bonus green points, surely?
The Mazi Mas restaurant is all about giving migrant and refugee women a place to show off their amazing cooking, gain valuable paid work experience and training, and connect with their local community through their passion for food. Please watch this video if you have chance to hear Mazi Mas' founder, Niki, present her vision. A really important, exciting project for London, I'll def try out the restaurant next time I'm in the big city, it opens 17 March.
Whether you're a Jamie fan or not, this festival looks pretty ace - good music and brilliant food in the middle of Alex James' farm (yep, the one from Blur who is a born again cheese maker, who knew). Groove Armada seem to be a musical highlight with the ubiquitous (and rather lovely) Hemsley sisters and Deliciously Ella cooking up a storm in the Feastival kitchens. I'd probably go for these three street food vendors alone - super amazing pimped up mac cheese from Anna Mae's, epic burgers from The Original Patty Men and fab flavoured meatballs from The Bowler - so good.
