2 April menu: “Distant Thunder”

This week is micro-season 12 “Distant Thunder” : Literally “The Vocalisation of Thunder”! While we are just starting to enjoy the sunshine here in Godalming, in the olden days in Japan thunder and rain would be a welcome sign of Spring. Wasabi is in season and being celebrated with fresh wasabi leaves and wasabizuke- pickled wasabi stems in homemade sake lees. Rare to see, the wasabi greens are more inline with the zing of a radish than the spicy sushi condiment! The sakura (cherry blossoms) are in full bloom too and reflected in the cherry swirl brownies.

As a vegan company, we try to be as Earth-friendly as possible. Our kitchen is powered by renewable energy, and you will see food being reused in different ways in the same bento For example, a carrot is cut, shaped and pickled, the cutout simmered and the peels used for stock. It is also a Japanese concept called “Mottainai”– the regret at things being discarded needlessly).

Why not use PLA plant based plastics? Deciding on packaging was one of the biggest hurdles. Compostable plant plastics (PLA) need to go to a special composting recycling plant and is not home compostable. There are no Surrey industrial plants to take them to (and no easy map to find one, post code location only). You cannot put it with garden waste or normal recycling, so it must go in the bin. The conditions in a rubbish tip does not let it biodegrade so it’s just more waste, if it is not burned first. I’m keeping an eye out for local options, please contact me if you have more information.
Moving forward we are always looking for greener and more sustainable solutions!
