The ice cold chills that have swept across the country, have meant that this weeks outdoor crops, as you can imagine, have suffered a little. The good news? We’ve got a slight respite from the scrumptious winter roots, as tomatoes, broccoli, celery and bananas make an appearance in this weeks boxes!
Why not try something a little different with your broccoli – a savoury twist on the sweet Turkish pastry Baklava. This Broccoli, Feta and Almond Baklava can be found here and will be sure to be a favourite at any Christmas do’s that require ‘nibbles’.
Stepney City Farm has some wonderful Christmas events on in the next few weeks. Highly recommended, based on last years performance is The Salvation Army’s Nativity Play which is at 2pm this Sunday.
