    Where to eat in Brighton : I visited Kindling, a new restaurant in Brighton based on zero waste, local produce & healthy eating. Check out this taster menu! The environment is a biophilic design dream. Scandi wood cabin chic, plants a plenty, and the menu calls out to eat natural and eat local.  Your eyes are drawn from the beautiful wooden tables and chairs upwards along the plants, hanging like a curtain that continue towards the high ceilings. It's like industrial meets plant filled log cabin, it's just lush. It's a stone's throw from Brighton beach and the shops in the Lanes, so the perfect spot.  The all British taster menu we were treated to included UK grown tomatoes, local wasabi, venison and beef from the Knepp estate re-wilding project (and via the gun shop across the road!), and of course lots of wild garlic. Yes, the wild garlic season is here! (if you're after a foraging bag, check this best seller out). Beef is also sourced from Herstmonceux and Ditchling, while lamb comes from Saddlescomb Farm, all in the Sussex area.

    Are you wondering what to do with your leftover pumpkin this Halloween? Before you ditch the inside scoop, put the flesh to one side and pick a Halloween pumpkin recipe (or any pumpkin for that matter!). This is a great step to take as eco activism becomes more widespread, thanks to people like Greta Thunberg. Halloween pumpkins are beautiful, fun and delicious. But this year, more than 8 million pumpkins will be thrown out uneaten after Halloween festivities - this equals 18,000 tonnes of edible pumpkin flesh! 60% of those buying fresh pumpkins don't use the flesh. So surely we should ask ourselves what to do with leftover pumpkin before sending this innocent produce to the gallows. Simple pumpkin soup - There are so many variations on the classic pumpkin soup. So start with this super simple classic pumpkin soup recipe from Cafe Delights, with potatoes and broth, and go from there. You can then choose to add coconut milk, maple syrup, curry powder, chilli or herbs. Why not try toppings like creme fraiche or cream, toasted seeds, almonds, fresh coriander, pomegranate and more.  Photo: Ella Olsson on Unsplash
