Got some organic mince meat from my brother, who gets it straight from a nearby farm. Also added some fresh new carrots, peas and onions from the marketplace to this homemade bolognese, and seasoned and garnished it with herbs from our garden. All through the years, I have made sure that the family gets together at least once a day around the table to eat and share the day’s news. These have been important and cherished moments.
We are very much into cooking from scratch, with fresh, local – organic if possible – produce. Our teenager, especially, is very adamant about ethic principles when it comes to food. For example, she will only eat meat of free-range animals, or fish that has been proven sustainable in our waters. Good for her! Wish more young people would give up fast food in favour of healthier and more environmentally-friendly alternatives.
