Cooks follow twitter recipes
August 14, 2010 by Michael
Printing services in Glasgow will be required as a creative and art group in the area team up with Landshare and the River Cottage to launch an exciting new cooking project that will feature on a pamphlet distributed at Glasgow’s Central Station.
The Glasgow based group, NVA, is a public arts organisation that have teamed up with Landshare, the organisation that tries to bring together people who have a passion for home grown food but may have little or no land. Landshare is an organisation that came out of the TV programme River Cottage with Hugh Fearnley –Whittingstall when the TV chef helped some families from Bristol to grow vegetables on their derelict council land.
The Landshare movement has spread nationally to now have over 50,000 members and NVA are working with them to launch twEATs, which will be a live cook-along featured on Twitter. Twitterers will follow chef, Tim Maddams, in the middle of August to cook a recipe along with him live from his base at the River Cottage Store in Axminster. Every stage of the recipe will be tweeted as he goes along so that people can follow the progress and photographs will be included so that fellow chefs can check they are on the right lines!
The live tweet project forms part of Glasgow Harvest, which celebrates growing in urban areas – hence the tie in with River Cottage and Landshare. Glasgow’s Central Station is also involved with commuters being given a limited edition run of the illustrated twEATS recipe pamphlet at the end of August.
