The Bennington Sustainable Food Project is cooking up a storm in the kitchen in preparation for the Co-op’s debut at Sunfest tomorrow.
Hey! I’m so flattered to get a personal question. That’s awesome that you are vegan and also like to cook + bake. Unfortunately there isn’t a local Whole Foods, but there is a natural foods market, Spice n’ Nice in town. There is also a green market (to which I have not yet ventured) in town once or twice a week.
I am revising my plan of study right now to focus on food’s representation in art throughout history and now. In this, I will focus mainly in photography-to capture food photos- and Italian to study a society where food is of major importance.
About the meal plan- almost all students are on it, and it is not an easy task to get off it. I am on the meal plan, which is beneficial for getting lunch in between classes or if I have too much work to have time to cook. The vegan options are good. I usually cook for myself and friends for dinner and often leave leftovers of what I make in the house.
We have house coffee hour on Sundays, and each person in the house buys or prepares food for one in each term. My coffee hour is coming up, so I am searching for some tasty desserts (possibly chocolate peanut butter cups or these muffins.
Please email me if you want to chat (or have any dessert ideas). My email is email@example.com
These are the two adjectives that describe my day with my Field Work Term advisor perfectly. We prepared a cleanse for her client in 6 hours, which is 2 hours less than expected, and the food was so good.
This was my lunch today- green lentil curry with spinach and butternut squash, collard greens, 3 types of squash, sweet brown rice with roasted pumpkin seeds, and oolong tea on the side. It is exciting to see how all of the steps- shopping, washing, preparing, cleaning- culminate in these beautiful, tasty dishes.
The color combinations in the dishes are extremely important to Amy, which has opened my eyes to an art form that involves food preparation and arrangement. More food photographs to come in the next few weeks.
There’s an organic store called “Spice n’ Nice” in town, which has a great selection of organic food, including fresh fruits and veggies. I love to cook, as well, so this is my go-to spot. It’s about a 5 minute drive from campus (a bit longer on the bus).
Also, as I mentioned in another post, we have kitchens in every house on campus, so you can cook whenever inspiration, or hunger, strikes.
I’m really picky about food and I’m always the first to criticize the dining hall. But dinner tonight was actually really good I thought. I ate herbed pasta with lots of parmasean (melt it a little in the microwave, oh yeah) and really yummy greenbeans and basil chicken. And coffee ice cream with walnuts and sprinkles and chocolate syrup. Just saying.
