Our collaboration choice this week was to give each other a recipe and to interpret it.
Here is a recipe: (I found it in an old old sketch book)
How to: make a lei from an old frock and recipe book
Cut patterns from the fabric, cut recipe book for stiffened backing, sew the two together. Form, plait, or slot. Place fittings on, use something interesting from the kitchen or the house (e.g. brushes, toothbrushes) for the flower stamens, thread on stainless steel fishing line (or any other thread).
I sent Fran this-
Beetroot & berry chocolate cake
Grate a cup of Beetroot , 1/2 cup of berries ( any type ) 1/2 cup coconut oil- melted, 2 cups ground almonds, 1 cup coconut sugar, 4 free range eggs, 1 cup cocoa , 1 1/2 tsp baking soda.
Add all ingredients into a good size bowl. Using a good mixing spoon carefully mix all together. You can use loaf tin, muffin tin, or cake tin. Bake in moderate oven , keep an eye on them ,time depends on which baking tin you have a used, when skewer comes out clean it’s ready .
‘The collaboration is giving me a clarity around my own process, it forces me to make when I don’t have the time, its forcing me to make the time, this is a very good thing’
‘What a yum recipe Nadine has sent…how the hell do I translate this into something…’
