Eat your way to a better world

So you don’t need the muscles of an Olympic champion. It turned out to be surprisingly easy to pedal a smoothie on this marvellous reinvented bike that seems to be making a name for itself at foodie festivals around Scotland.

The Fife Diet’s smoothie bike  travelled from the Big Tent festival in Fife during the summer to  Blasda Edinburgh the great green harvest festival of local foods – home-grown and home-made – in Out of the Blue Drill Hall last week.

On each occasion World Kitchen in Leith has also been there – feeding performers and volunteers at the Big a pan of potato curryTent and mixing up a medley of multicultural potato dishes at Blasda.

Next week you will see more pedal powered smoothie action at the brand new Newhaven Fest, another inspiring local community celebration of good food and music.  But this time the World Kitchen will be elsewhere – back in Out of the Blue cooking up a multicultural brunch for Nourishing a Global Community with film, music, food and discussion organised by Take One Action. Their simple but powerful slogan: eat your way to a better world.

Both of these events deserve lots of support. Unfortunately the World Kitchen in Leith team  can’t be in two places at once but it should be possible for foodie enthusiasts to get from one to another.  On a bike maybe…

Nourishing a Global Community is in Out of the Blue from 12.00 to 4.30pm

Newhaven Fest is at Newhaven Harbour from 12.00 to 5pm
