Joined August 2016

I was the product of 2 beatniks went to a state boys only grammar School.and left in 1984 .Then after living in France and Spain for 4 years.Ended up doing an apprenticeship with my father who was an advertising Conceptual creative He ran his own business out of an office on Parkway in Camden town.He taught me Copy writing Sales pitching ,How to package and sell an idea How to manage continuity programs .His business went down in the Thatcher recession and the combination of ill health and economic stagnation and bad choices in working partners .I became disillusioned and never quite grasped that the industry is basically geared around tricking people into consuming and purchasing product,and the increase in profit and market share for major corporations ..I then got into professional cooking for 25 odd years .Passed my city and guilds and went into the industry .I achieved an AA recommendation and learnt to cook to a rosette standard It had its thrills and spills, this point in time I am sick of it and want to re focus my energies into music .I am also very interested in the current political climate both World wide and domestic and am physically revolted by neo libertine ideology .The power of the big banking institutions and how the media control s and manipulates the mood and feelings of the population (brexit was a fine example of this) . .Some way I think I can, when hooked up with the right like minded people help harness the 2 and help Shape a new world that harks back to the political ideology of positive change for the better from the era when I was born .Not the Draconian culture of greed and purposely designed inequality ,hate and fear peddled to the masses today .I believe in Corbyn and I hope and I know that it is possible, that he will get to fulfill his destiny , but it will take people like us to help him otherwise the bad will triumph .Any way that s where I am at and how I feel .I hope some of the people attracted to this campfire concept feel the same and after the festival and meeting alot of you I am sure we are all kindred spirits x Bring it on !

More mid week food experimentation from the Chig Hood .Shared with love within the Campfire Community

Ingredients /Method /equipment

Deep fried Mung bean balls

Ingredients Mung beans soaked over night veg stock cube  /spice I used ground pre roasted nutmeg ,coriander ,cumin ,brown cardamoms,black pepper  and fennel seed fresh turmeric /Fine chopped spring onion and fresh coriander and some Mr Naga Chilli paste

Method put soaked drained raw  mung beans into a suitable container and puree  with garlic spice .and some dry stock cube with a stick blender  .If it needs more liquid add it .Then add the  knife cut ingredients and taste it ,they aren't poisonous raw (They are what bean sprouts are )

For the salad I used the remaining left over quinoa /fine sliced  red cabbage /a grated organic carrot /fine sliced raw broccoli /pomegranate seeds /and fine sliced red onion and chopped flat leaf parsley  and chai seed

Dressing Aldi Organic unpasteurized apple cider vinegar containing the mother culture and good quality virgin press olive oil and seasoning


Heat oil to a hot temperature for deep frying and mix the salade ingredients and dress

Deep fry the balls like falafels .I just formed it into small balls and gently dropped into the oil and cooked until they came up to the top and drained off on kitchen roll They were crisp and brown on the out side and had a nutty pleasant texture inside brimming with flavour

Next dress on plates .and serve
