The Tandem Local team travels by bike through the Belgian countryside, giving a voice to the citizens who, in the four corners of the country, are every day inventing new food models that are fairer and more inclusive. What do they have in common? Local action! In this epic trip, the team meets sustainable local food actors and shows us that a distributed food system with proper scale, respecting local people, nature and culture is possible. These actors who are small scale farmers can produce food locally, independent from the risks associated with the global market driven by multinational corporations. The volunteer team of Tandem Local  discovers a new perspective of living and producing food all around Belgium and think that eating local food is the main key for a sustainable future.

Turquerie

Having penetrated the Balkans in the fourteenth century, conquered Constantinople in the fifteenth, and reached the gates of Vienna in the sixteenth, the Ottoman Empire long struck fear into European hearts. 

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.
