5 Ideas For a Special Easter

02/04/2015

So the holidays are almost here, huh? What we usually do when we have many days-off lined one after the other is to succumb to our escalating levels of laziness and spent all of our free time eating and…

We are hungry

12/10/2014

Since we have been accepted in Seedcamp our journey has been both tough and inspiring in equal measures. We landed in London on the 05th of September with no place to live, a lean budget and big dreams. The past month has been like a blur, time speeding at a fast pace, trying to prove to the world that we can make it happen. We stopped measuring time in hours, but rather used milestones. We crashed at friends homes, couchsurfing between places, spent the weekends at the farmer markets and on the…

Back to School

14/09/2014

farmhopping wishes a great start of the school year to all the little farmhoppers out there. We use the occasion to turn to their caring mothers, hoping this 15th of September marks a better start - one that is greener, healthier and more sustainable. There is nothing worse than peer pressure. What power does a mother have to fight with the temptations of the chocolate bars, shiny wrappers and one-meter-long chewing gums. At least that’s what was hip during our childhood, who knows what’s…

Veal Done Right: Just to Make Sure You Don’t Bite Off More Than You Can Chew

18/08/2014

Cooking veal takes more than just intuition, but can’t go without it. Some instructions sure come handy, so do take notes. We start with the logical, though often ignored, golden rule #1 - know where your food comes from. You sure don’t want it travelling 3 continents, frozen for three years. Even fresh veal isn’t straightforward, so here comes rule #2 - set it aside for 5 days or so. If you ever did your best in the kitchen, followed your gut and still got it wrong (i.e. it took a…

Soul Food @ Sofia Breathes 2014

08/08/2014

Sofia breathes again throughout another August. Sofia breathes, sings, laughs, goes out for drinks, cooks, sews and learns crafts, creates something from nothing, with full lungs, crowded to the limit and beyond, full of faces, smiling, loving, excited, distracted and strict. Umbrellas up, sandals on, under the sun, at the park, at Popa, sitting on a bench, in the little streets painted with graffiti, in front of the theater, behind the library, at Ariana, up at Kopitoto, up to the knees in lime puddles.…

On Diversity

03/08/2014

Diversity is a very favorite word for our generation, unlike for the generations of the past. They were amazed by standardization and by one-size fits all principles. Any customer could have a car painted any color that he wanted so long as it was black. That sure was efficient and efficiency was the principle upon which a civilization of industrialization was based. In that era, the fittest survived. But is this the principle by which we should move forward? If calculated efficiency is what we are…

The Good Food Battle

28/07/2014

We guess you have already heard about the widely discussed battle between the cook of cooks Jamie Oliver and the king of fast food chains McDonald’s. For those who need a reminder: Jamie has been out to get all those standing in the way of a healthy food movement, and it comes as no surprise that the fast food leaders were first on his list. The entire story could amount to a novel, starting with on air revelation of the process through which the meat in our burgers is processed. The view has…

Farmhopping in good company with Airbnb, Snapgoods and Side Car

11/07/2014

              We’re going to speak about shared economy. What else could an economy be if not shared? Well, that’s a good question! The idea behind the term is that property is an outdated concept, and it isn’t that cool anymore to have all that many gadgets that you get rid of every month because of the newest trend out there. The tendency is towards finding the most innovative way to get the job done, without all those excessive possessions, or at…

Meals on Wheels - Our Goodies on the Move

08/07/2014

                  When summer comes, the right spot for your lovely dinner counts, sometimes even more than the dinner itself. However amazingly tasty the meal, it could only get better with the refreshing breeze after a hot day under the sun (better yet by the sea coast). If you are short of ideas for the perfect spot, Karavan Kitchen is there for you. You might already know the idea, it definitely wasn’t invented in Bulgaria, but it applies pretty well…
