Waste Proposal Unit at Outhouse, Norwich

Im up in Norwich continuing a project I started last year with Critical Practice called Waste Proposal Unit. I was invited here by Outpost Gallery as part of their series of short residencies this summer for CAN 09 entitled Outhouse.

During the last few days I've been meeting local growers, producers and food retailers and developing recipes based on these interactions.

More information here: Bantamweight. Also, do make a visit Outpost Gallery's blog.

If you're around in Norwich on Tuesday night, come to Outpost Gallery's Outhouse building from 6pm for an event where we'll be cooking with the recipes of the last few days. It's on Colegate, look for the A-board outside. Hope to see you there!

Norfolk Basil

As a follow-up to (and in the spirit of) Mike Knowlden's "Waste Proposal Unit" here is a picture of the basil cuttings we bought from Norwich Market on the day of the event (14th May), which still survive in a glass of water on the windowsill back in London. The bunch of basil cost us 1, and has been used to cook for fifty two people in a gallery, and now continues to provide us with basil over a fortnight later.
