We collect firewood and light up the fire. For one of the fires a hole must be dug into the ground. We dress the hole with large field stones, light the fire and wait until the stones are hot. A second fire will be needed to bake bread in clay pots.
We go to the field where the black Dexter cattle graze, a small breed that has been known for centuries. If we keep quiet, the flock will be curious and come closer and gather around us, so that they can lick salt out of our hands and smell who we are. We greet each other. And we get to know what role the cattle plays in agriculture, how we keep them and care for them and learn about the trajectory of the meat from the farm to the consumer.
In the vegetable garden we smell and taste what is growing there and dig out our potatoes. Later we bake them with cream in a pot and make pot bread. Bread which is baked in a clay pot has a nice crust. We place a good piece of meat in the earth oven. After all the ingredients are put together and after we finish cooking, we eat together by the fire.
