Hippy Gourmet Newsletter - August'09
Happy Summer everyone!
By now you ought to be fully enjoying all
of the organic & juicy ripe summer fruits, berries and of course sweet summer corn! Summer is a time to use
the longer days to reconnect with friends and family and to slow down a bit from the hectic pace of our busy
you considered building or buying a solar oven for backyard or
vacation use? There are plenty of great plans on the internet
for free on how-to build your own solar cooker, something great
to do with the kids by the way! Or you can check out www.SolarOvens.org
to see their Solar Sport oven that is an incredible piece of simple
technology. The solar cooker can get up to 400 degrees in less
than 30-minutes, just by pointing the box toward the sun light
in the morning. Then you can put your favorite recipes together
in black camping pots or cast-iron pans and let physics do the
cooking for you! Tastes great, no charcoal or lighter fluid, saves
so much energy and you don't have to turn the AC on to compensate
for your oven or stove!
Living TV travels to New Zealand!
As part of our 10th season of shows we were so blessed to hook
up with www.OrganicExplorer.com to get a 3-weeks filming tour
of pure and sustainable New Zealand! We traveled from Christchurch
in the south island to the Westport area on the wild west coast,
up to Abel Tasman National Park and then to Kaikoura on the east
coast of the South Island. Then we traveled by Inter-Island Ferry
to the north island of New Zealand traveling to Wellington, Rotorua,
Auckland and then completing our filming tour in the far Northland
area of Kerikeri!
Zealand is a magical place where the air is clean, the water pure,
the produce is primarily organic and the wines bio-dynamic! We
met so many wonderful people along our route and enjoyed such
tremendous hospitality on Air New Zealand and through our friends
at Organic Explorer. New Zealand is a must-travel to place and
we're sure once you go you will want to return again and again!
Don't forget to mention Organic Living TV with the Hippy Gourmet
when you follow our tour, as you will receive very special treatment
for being part of our family!

local PBS station, as the "P" in PBS stands for Public and that
