Lo and behold, the rain stopped at 11.30am, and we were in business, although we already had a marquee up to make sure we had a dry space to prepare in. The volunteers started the ball rolling, picking and preparing potatoes and coriander from our plot, and then other guests came, mainly from the Acorn Day Centre, and the volunteers helped them to pick mint and harvest onions ready for our food.

We ran the rocket stove, which performed really well, getting oil hot enough to cook pakoras. We made several batches of these, with different veg, including onion and potato, onion and cauliflower and onion, aubergine and peas. They went down a storm.

We also did a chicken curry, and Jas got lots of us involved in making chapatis which were really easy, as long as no-one was marking us on how round and thin we got them!

Steven brought along chana dhal, which was delicious, and got snapped up.
