Dear <<First Name>>,
I promised you a classic gazpacho recipe last week and in fact faced with so much bounty in the market I got a bit over excited and ended up with in fact a rainbow cocktail. Its that "salad days" time of year for easy food so blend up some gazpacho, have a slice of "pissaladiere" with some salad leaves, peel a ripe pear and sit back with a glass of something nice. I know we all live busy lives and the convenience of supermarkets is beguiling but markets are support systems and tie people and produce back to the earth. Products really do taste better plus its much more entertaining. Go on..make some time!

My grandfather came from farming stock and he was fond of looking at soil and saying "thats a good piece of dirt". He knew the value and the power of the land. Michael Pollan is best known for his books and writing on real food and how we eat. In this fascinating article co-written with Debbie Barker, Director for Food Safety, US they examine the power of soil to reverse climate change "We think of climate change as a consequence of burning fossil fuels. But a third of the carbon in the atmosphere today used to be in the soil, and modern farming is largely to blame."
