We have a blog for this event i am working on :
It is worth looking at as we have writers, journalists, illustrators, film maker (well me….) all contributing, and it is updated a lot throughout the day.
So Thursday was a little chaotic as all first days are, i had technical nightmares including my editing software programme failing on me, and then when i resolved that, my (very expensive) video camera completely broke down, kind of a problem considering i am in charge of video at this workshop….and then the other girl who is supposed to film the entire event managed to arrive…without her video camera.. Still managed to get stuff done though…
Food is a big part of the workshop programmme, was is today’s dunner menu:
Dinner 20th – SUD SUD SUD!
the tradition of Southern Italy, simple food from a humble land: bread products – “pucce” (small breads with olives and vegetables) to be eaten with tomatoes, rocket and tuna, “pittule e cottu” (small fried bread balls with vine molasses), dried tomato soup, “pitta de mennule” (almond cake). Sweet bread for the breakfast of 21st.
Bread making with “pasta madre” during the afternoon, open to participants – the original technique of leavening, the transformation of flour into bread and more.
It was very very good!
