Mr V and I love getting involved in any food challenges and events that come our way so when Sara at Cake Communications asked us to participate in Earth Hour, we took her up on her offer.
I hadn’t heard of Earth Hour before. It is an initiative run by the WWF to encourage people to turn off their lights for just one hour on 31st March between 8.30pm and 9.30pm in order to conserve energy and to make us think about the planet that we all share. The plan is to bring people together during this one hour and encourage as many people as possible to turn off their lights.
This year, the WWF are suggesting that you use this time to get together with family and friends and celebrate the occasion with a candlelit dinner. I think this is a wonderful idea so on Saturday 31st, Mr V and I have invited my family up from Sussex to participate in a candlelit dinner that we will be preparing. We will do this live on the night and tweet photos and updates as we go. It would be amazing if you could do the same and we could all keep in touch with each other’s progress through Twitter on the night.
I should just add at this point, this is the WWF as in the World Wide Fund. It has nothing to do with wrestling, much to my brothers disappointment so he has declined the invitation!
To help people decide what to cook at their candlelit dinners, a host of celebrity chefs have got involved including Bryn Williams who has kindly produced some recipes for people to use. You can read Bryn’s recipes here.
If you’d like to host your own dinner party and join us and many others at in foodie celebration during Earth Hour, you can download a dinner party guide here.
I’ll look forward to seeing your photos and hearing about what you are going to cook!
