Audible Weed Walk – ep.37 “New Year – everywhere: local, weedy, wilds to eat”

Happy Indian New Year to all. Should I say Asian since several SE Asian nations – Bangladesh, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand all celebrate new year around the same time/date as us? Yes, let’s be inclusive and say Happy Asian New Year to All! In this podcast delve into the traditional celebratory meals from different regions and try to rummage through the popular meals to find what was traditional and if they made sense with what is to be eaten at this season – bitter, astringent, and a touch of sweet. I also share a recipe or two if you listen carefully. They are recipes for bitters of the season but try them out – they are really yummy. We also kickstart earth-week that runs from 16 to 22 April, the Earth Day!
