I had a gap of 1 day between getting back form NYC and going to the Fresh Festival in Somerset to help with the catering for what turned out to be an amazing 6 days in the kitchen. More on that in a separate blog post though.
So what brought me back down to earth? I met an old work colleague in Tesco whilst shopping for my kale & Avocado salad ingredients and reluctantly got in a conversation with him. We started off well enough but things went downhill after he said, "so, you errrrr, still eating kale then?"
"Is that such a big thing?" I thought. After nearly 2 months around open-minded people in arguably the raw food capital of the world, it's easy to forget that apparently, in Sussex, it is a big thing!
I miss having brunch at Quintessence!
