Interview: Benjamin Baldwin

September

The Slowpoke: BENJAMIN BALDWIN // Photo by: Hilary Walker Benjamin Baldwin is a man who opts for time honoured methods over modern shortcuts. He finds beauty in every join and detail and the time and skills required to get there. And as a maker who works only with recycled materials (and machinery!) he knows the value of a decent piece of otherwise discarded timber better than many.

Honey-roasted pumpkin + borlotti bean salad

June

The Slowpoke: HONEY-ROASTED PUMPKIN + BORLOTTI BEAN SALAD With pumpkins in abundance it’s a great time to tuck into a warm salad of them roasted with ethical and locally sourced honey. Hearten it up further with a good serve of beans and hazelnuts. This recipe is a great one from Chrissy Freer’s new book on the power of legumes, Superlegumes.
