HOT PLATES: Kate Magic – Broken Beets
Not only is Kate Magic a renowned raw food expert, having written the UK’s first raw food recipe book (2002’s Eat Smart Eat Raw) and the world’s first superfood recipe book (2008’s Raw Magic), but she is also deeply passionate about music and holds down regular shows on London’s Soho Radio and Brighton’s 1BTN radio stations.
Here, she combines her love for raw food with her love for West London’s legendary broken beat movement, with a revitalising cabbage and beet sauerkraut and a mix of soulful and syncopated broken sounds.
Two of my very favourite things in the whole world! Fermented foods and London dance music. I find that my recipes taste better when I play them music while I’m making them, no joke. Everything is frequency: the vibrations of the music affect the vibrations of the food.
This sauerkraut will taste good whatever you play while you are making it, and this mix will sound good whatever you do while you are listening to it; but put the two together and you might just find yourself in bruk bliss.
Takes 15 mins & at least a week to ferment
Makes approx. 16 servings of kraut
Notes: You will need a 2 litre Kilner jar, a large bowl & a pair of disposable gloves
Sauerkraut making is not as tricky as it first appears, trust me.
