The Hedgehog Awareness Week 2017 #hedgehogweek is being observed 30.04.-06.05. It's an annual theme week organised by the British Hedgehog Preservation Society trying to raise awareness about the problems that hedgehogs face, and what each one of us can do to help them. Have a look in the link above, if you want to help in any way, as there are some really good tips. Some things are really easy to do and help hedgehogs a great deal. This cause is of course close to my heart, and it would be great, if more people would think about these things and get involved. This year there is a special strimmer campaign reminding people to check all areas for hedgehogs before using strimmers and other equipment.
I usually make a hedgehoggy dish to celebrate this week, and I have made many different hedgehog ravioli in the past, so I thought I'd make something different this year. I ended up making hedgehog shaped polenta snuffling in a nice colourful realm. There were roasted bell peppers, honey and chilli glazed halloumi, pomegranate seeds, chicoree, lambs lettuce, semi-dried tomatoes and edible flowers, and of course the herby polenta hogs. It was quite a tasty plate of food.
Have a nice week!
