Wise Traditions London 2011 – DVDs Available Now

With the Wise Traditions conference here in the US just around the corner I thought it appropriate to post this series of DVDs from the London 2011 Conference. Great series. Samples from many of the talks are available on Vimeo here. Unfortunately I’m not gonna be at the conference this year. Too much going on! I am just barely getting back on my feet after a week of a biodynamic craniosacral therapy training followed by the Raw Milk Rally with Michael Schmidt on day 33 of his hunger strike. Thanks be to God he is eating again now.

Burmese Dining in London

Semolina CakeI was very excited to get a message from a friend in London who was taking her man out for his birthday dinner to Mandalay, which is a very good Burmese restaurant in London, one of the few Burmese restaurants outside of Myanmar in the world. There is also a very good one in San Francisco and a couple in New York, if anyone else knows of any others, please let me know!

Burmese food is really it’s own thing and I highly recommend trying it out if you get a chance. Kat’s message follows:

I just got back from the restaurant and the food was fantastic! I had that coconut chicken noodle soup (Kaukswe) that you recommended and it was divine! It reminded me a bit of Penang Laksa only better ‘cus they use chicken breast which I prefer! So no bones or funny offal stuff that you sometimes get in noodle dishes. I had battered veg for starters a bit like tempura and some lovely chicken samosas. For dessert I had a tapioca pudding in coconut milk (a bit like Gula Melaka) and Jake had a lovely semolina cake (pictured above).
