It's March, the time to take stock of the first quarter of 2019. With the indulgent festivities finally over, it's time to re-look at our eating habits, opting for the simple over fancy, easy-to-make over store-bought.
Coincidentally, March counts down to the highly-anticipated Earth Hour at the end of the month, which campaigns for the connection with earth, nature's importance and protecting life on earth - all of which are such intrinsic values that Super Farmers advocates.
In this month's Self-Care workshop series, we will focus on recipes that are simple and mindful to our dear Mother Earth; Recipes that require hardly any cooking, to conserve energy. We will also show you how to eat off the earth, by foraging in Singapore for wild plants that have exceptional therapeutic benefits.
An interesting feature ingredient in this month's Self-Care workshop series is Ikan Bilis. This little and unassuming anchovy is earth-friendly and nutrient-dense. Wildly caught and never farmed, these tiny fish have such short life cycles, they're not as susceptible to heavy metal contamination as other bigger fishes are.
Recipes you will be learning:
1) Foraged Wild Pepperomia Salad
2) Instant Ikan Bilis Broth Powder (no more store-bought stock cubes)
3) Lady's Fingers with No-cook Sambal
What you will learn:
-How to cook using solar infusion methods
-How to forage
-How to grow your own herbs
-The nutritional benefits of edible plants
What you will bring home with you:
-A jar of Ikan Bilis Broth Powder or No-cook Sambal
-A growing project
-Notes & Recipes
