Food for Thought

By Guest Blogger, Production Assistant & Chef Extraordinaire, Emily, whilst away at a devising retreat in very rural Beaford, Devon

Kilter is away, making and creating The Last Post.  It’s a five day devising extravaganza with lots mental and physical  exertion. With all that output we’ve learned it’s really important to eat and fuel ourselves for maximum brilliance. But, as we all know, when you’re away from normal routines, it can be hard to prepare and eat food in a positive way.

So for this trip, we made a concerted effort to break our bad touring food habits. On top of this, we’re devising theatre about supporting your local services so it’s important that we walk the talk!

With ten or so vegetarian meals to cater for, and six hungry mouths to feed, this involved quite a bit of planning ahead. We visited a couple of farmers markets and became inspired by the copious amounts of courgettes, delicious british peppers, amazing smelling tomatoes and incredible range of local cheeses. After that, the menu panned out easily.

It was so lovely to be able to exchange goods for currency while talking to a local farmer about Kilter theatre and our devising week away. Filling our bags with fennel bulbs, tubs of tomatoes, earthy potatoes and some complimentary sweet peas, I left heavily laden with goods ready to cook up a storm.

Many thanks to Arcadia Organic, Bakers of Bath, Jacob’s Finest and Havest Wholefoods: we’re having a tasty and productive time! Right I’m off to cook a Cauliflower Curry!
