What is Food with Time?
Food with Time is Seasonal & Vegcentric
Food in it’s own time. Fresh fruits and vegetables eaten in their prime are at their most flavoursome: their texture, colour and taste are as nature intended. Giving precedence to delicious seasonal bounty within our diet naturally begets a vegcentric way of eating, which is a truly sustainable diet, benefitting both the environment and the individual.
Food with Time is Fermentation
The astounding complexity of flavour of fermented foods is absolutely integral to good vegcentric cooking; that savoury tang provides the intrigue and excitement on the palate, which vegcentric food (and vegan in particular) can often cry out for. This ancient practice of preserving seasonal bounty (or making delicious use of a glut from the farmers’ market!) enhances and elevates the flavour profile of any dish, and even boosts its nutritional value.
& Food with Time is thinking ‘Beyond the Plate’
Food with Time believes that good cooking begins well before we pull our ingredients from the fridge... How we eat is as important as what we eat. Engaging with ideas of sustainable farming is key, as is mindful procurement and shopping locally. Consideration for the environment is bound to the notion of delicious, healthy food. What happens #BeyondThePlate is as relevant as what’s on it.
