2012 – Terra Madre Day

with one comment

December 10, 2012
Terra Madre Day
Made From Scratch

In 1986, the Slow Food Movement was created to promote and preserve regional food as well as cultural traditions. While it’s primary purpose was to promote local small businesses and try to deter the globalization of agriculture, the intentions have grown roots in everyday people.

The Slow Food Toronto group on Facebook had an interesting idea, an open event to encourage people to celebrate Mother Earth. They decided to creat an open event, inviting people to participate online from December 8th until the 10th. Since I had made some chicken stock prior to the event, and the weekend of the event was swamped with Christmas and Chanukah parties, I decided to begin on the 8th by using the homemade stock and create a simple chicken soup for lunch!

On another day we made whole-wheat Italian-style breadcrumbs and used them to make roasted chicken breasts.

The Stock
Chicken carcass, meat mostly-removed (roasted previously )

2 Stalks Celery
1 large Carrot
2 cloves Garlic
1 medium sized onion
dried hot pepper
Salt and pepper
Bay leaves
Lemon juice
Soup
2 cloves garlic, crushed
chicken breast meat, cubed
Mashed carrot, celery and onion from stock
Mushrooms
Broccoli stalks – sliced (leftover, waste-not-wank-not)
Water
Salt and pepper
Roma tomatoes
Italian parsley
Brown rice made with the chicken stock
