So..harvest...feast..


So if you know me you know that ever since I was 16 I fasted on Thanksgiving (Oh L yeah I'll have a crazy reflective post on the the origins of that day when it rolls around). [Back to the the Story]-{no BLACK to the story}.

I usually have a pre or post Thanksgiving harvest feast to commemorate Fall/Autumn/Harvest. (still haven't figured out if its going to be pre or post this year). I am also contemplating having the gathering in Mecca (Harlem) or Medina (Brooklyn)so my NYC folk shout out the God.

I have the menu drawn up and the recipes. It'll be a communal preparation. I got the recipes from my man rawfoodfrank. This is the first year I'm doing an all raw feast so be down,you know you want to be.

Cream of Parsnip Soup
Candied Pecans
Pomegranate Vinaigrette
Spicy Sweet Potatoes
Sprouted Wild Grass Stuffing
Walnut and Sage Gravy
Goji-cranberry sauce
Green Beans with Mustard-Almond Aioli
Perfect Pear Tart
Carob Fudge

Peace,I love the idea of having an Autumn Harvest. The menu looks amazing. I wish I was in the area now but next year I'll be there to lend a hand! =)

Makes perfect sense the more I thought about it. Part of my journey is learning to eat locally and in season. Especially in areas where the 'four traditional seasons' are in full effect one of the purposes of the harvest was to store food for the upcoming winter AND have a feast due to the surplus.

It's funny cause the schools are still on the agricultural schedule (which is why they are off all during the summer cause people use to have to help on the farm planting) and they don't need to be yet we can and should be yet aren't. Go figure.
