13 Sep Say hello to: street food from Jhal Muri Express
The OctoberFeast Street Food Feast has evolved for 2016, featuring not just the Harvey’s Hop Bar and a top selection of street traders but a teaching kitchen with masterclasses from five of our favourite chefs. We’re most excited to be hosting Jhal Muri Express, who will be serving up the finest Indian street food – perfect fodder for lunch outdoors with a pint of beer. Here’s a little introduction…
Who are you?
The Everybody Love Love Jhal Muri Express.
How are you involved in Lewes OctoberFeast this year?
We will be making Jhal Muri outside Harvey’s Brewery on Saturday the 17th.
What recommendations would you give those who want to experience the best of our region’s food and drink?
Go to the source of were your food comes from – the farm shops, small independent butchers, the fish huts at Hastings and local veg box schemes.
What concerns or pleases you most about how we eat?
My biggest concern is that much of what people eat is nutritionally void and energetically dead – not true of our food, I hasten to add!
If you could pick one dish that sums up what Jhal Muri Express is about, what would it be and why?
Jhal Muri is snack from Bengal that is balanced nutritionally and ticks all the boxes, made fresh to order with care and consideration.
What is your favourite ingredient that is grown or made in Sussex and why?
Sussex is blessed with many foods that grow wild such as fruits, herbs and greens. Free to all and coming out just when our bodies need them.
