The Delicious Flavours Of Apulian Wines Capture The History Of Life And Death In The Region.

We had started the day meeting the little kids in Carpignano Serrano, Scuela de Infancia – Castriniano. With all their lives ahead of them, they were so sweet, all lined up in a row, waving their National Flag proudly as they sang Nursery Rhymes. I felt very privileged to be thought of as an ambassador. […]

Virgin Olive Oil – A First Time For Everything

They gathered together giggling like girls, four elderly ladies in traditional scarf and swooshy, full skirt. Brandishing a witches broom each, they demonstrated how they used to harvest olives in days gone buy. Gathering at the base of an olive tree, they swept across the surface of the earth, picking up the ripe fruit. They […]

Restaurant Risorgimento – Something A Little More Sophisticated

You know that really tired feeling, when your head throbs slightly and things seem a little distorted? We had had such an amazing day but it wasn’t all over yet. Vita certainly had packed a lot into our Grundtvig week. We walked in a chattering group, through the beautiful, noisy and vibrant streets of Lecce, […]

Pasticcioto at Donno’s Bakery, Cutrofiano

I have to say at this point, after a considerable feast at Bakery Caroppo earlier today, I didn’t think I could fit another thing in! It was exceptionally dark in Donno’s Pastry shop in Cutrofiano, lit with only a couple of very green strip lights,  stretching my Canon 5D Mark 2’s high iso capabilities to the […]

Loving Lecce – Life-long learning through cultural exchange and healthy food production

Rich aromas of baking bread drifted towards me as I meandered around the streets of Lecce last week. Just in the shadow of an old amphitheatre in Piazza San Oronzo was what could be described as a farmer’s market, thronging with visitors. It was intoxicating, the musical sound of the Italian language, the hues and […]

EBS “Riot Of Colour” Turns A Few Heads At RHS Hampton Court

With only 4 hours to visit the largest horticultural show in the UK, I was hard pushed to get round it all. Following the Edible Bus Stop’s crew through each stage of the build via Twitter and Facebook, I was determined to hit their installation first and wasn’t disappointed. It was a large plot replicating […]

Changing The World One Bus Stop At A Time

Last Saturday, I visited the Edible Bus Stop Community Allotment project in Stockwell’s Landor Road, London SW9. I had been following its progress with great interest on Facebook for some time, because my childhood friend Mak Gilchrist is one of its co-founders. Just over a year ago, Mak and three other Edithna Street residents, Will […]

Never Underestimate the Power of a Catchy Jingle…

Here’s a video I shot on the spur of the moment featuring my not so little bro. Just goes to show those advertising guys have got this down pat. We might find these tunes annoying but it’s stuck in the old bonce now for good.   Link to PR week

ZED Tunnel Guidance Systems in Hersham win the Queen’s Award for Industry : Light years ahead for Adobe Lightroom 3.

Doink! Down popped a message from my trishgant.com contact form. It was a local company, ZED Tunnel Guidance Systems,  needing a photographer to shoot a presentation. But is wasn’t just an ordinary presentation…oh no! It was the Queen’s Award for Industry presented by HRH Duke of Kent. Blimey! Since 1975, ZED Tunnel Guidance has specialised […]
