Good Food, Good Friends, Good Oil

Last night I had the honour of dining with Henry Braham and Glynis Murray, their gracious (and top chef!) son Ben, a few of the friendly folks from Splendid Communications and a gaggle of London's food blogging usual suspects:

eat like a girl - Epicurienne - Fake Plastic Noodles - Food Stories - Hollow Legs

Good times (and Good Oil)! It was awesome hanging out with everybody and a delight to feel so welcome in Henry and Glynis's home. See below for my Londonist write-up.

Good Oil Dinner Party

It’s always inspiring to hear about Londoners making a go of a dream, especially when the dream is based upon a healthy, sustainable idea. Take West Londoners
Henry Braham and Glynis Murray for example. Not content to rest on their laurels and relish in their successes in the film industry, Braham and Murray have connected to their farming backgrounds to produce Good Oil, a “high-quality and healthy UK product” made of hemp seed. According to the cinematographer and film producer partners, the reintroduction of hemp seed (one of the oldest crops to be grown in the UK) to British soil was just the inspiration they needed.
