Go Out but Stay In
'Oishī' Means Delicious!
Moto Priestman is back with another recipe straight out of Okan Brixton. This time, it is a no-cook Fennel Goma Salad, that perfectly combines fennel's aromatic bite with a savory-sweet tahini and honey dressing. Give it a go in your kitchen - or bring Okan to you with takeaway and delivery options still running.
Go Out but Stay In
This week, we've taken baby steps back towards a reality before 'pandemic' was in our daily vocabularies. If you've had a stroll around your neighbourhood, you've probably seen shops and restaurants are still mostly shut, but are adapting how they trade to stay in business during this uncertain spell. Today, we shine our "who you support" spotlight on our collection point partners that are doing their best to support themselves and their communities. Your choice of where you shop is now more important than ever, and Local Greens is certainly partial to keeping it local. It is, after all, the best way to ensure our high streets thrive and our gathering places can reopen after all this. Find your neighbourhood spot below and click through to see how you can share your support, and have the fun of going out by staying in.
