A special thanks to Charmaine and everyone involved in organising yesterdays superb meeting in North Queensferry. Thanks to to Ryan Nelson (Nelson’s Farm Ice Cream, Blair Mains, Culross, Fife KY12 8JW ) who came and served some of the best ice cream I’ve ever tasted. Ryan was inspired by a trip to Italy where every village had superb ice cream and asked himself, why do we have to eat yellow coloured synthetic rubbish? You can buy it at Culross Post Office and at Dunfermline and Kirkcaldy Farmer’s Markets.The Sunday Herald has launched its Eat Local campaign as a response to the growing global food crisis saying: “Scotland could have a particularly important role to play in future as global warming damages the ability of other regions of the world to grow food. But as well as helping the world’s poor there are sound health, environmental and financial reasons for changing our diet and concentrating on seasonal produce.” You can see the start of the campaign here. Today’s paper promises links and a wider ‘local eating campaign’ which I don’t see yet…
