MOSHI MOSHI IN DECEMBER
Shell & the Arctic 30
Many thanks to all of you who signed the Free the Greenpeace Arctic 30 Petition – it turns out you are in esteemed company.
Paul McCartney also wrote a private letter to Vladimir Putin, who is a big Beatles fan. In the letter Macca shares the admiration we all have for the Arctic 30 and, most importantly, he calls for their release.
A favourite line reads: "Forty-five years ago I wrote a song about Russia for the White Album, back when it wasn't fashionable for English people to say nice things about your country. That song had one of my favourite Beatles lines in it: 'Been away so long I hardly knew the place, gee it's good to be back home.' "Could you make that come true for the Greenpeace prisoners?"
Although eight activists have now been discharged, as I write, 26 are still on bail with charges hanging over them that may still result in imprisonment. Our thoughts are with them.
It was a heartening moment to see footage of the two Russians being released, and their unrelenting determination to keep working for the good of our planet.
Denis Sinyakov and Andrey Allakhverdov kiss their wives for the first time in over two months. See the footage here.
Celebrate Christmas at Moshi Moshi!
Book your Christmas party with us before December 5th for a glass of plum wine on us!

Terra Madre Day December 10th
Please join our annual celebration of Slow Food's Terra Madre day on December 10 again this year.
Recently the BBC's Monty Halls invited us to participate in a workshop looking at how to do just this – and we inspired a few pioneers to have a go for themselves. If you want to join them and find out more, click here.
Forgotten Foods Program
Join us on December 10 for a complimentary Gloucester Old Spot pork tonkatsu!
The Forgotten Foods Program travels the country collecting small-scale quality produce threatened by industrial agriculture, environmental degradation and homogenization.

Last year, when we launched the world's fist QR code sushi alongside the Marine Stewardship Council MSC, a French TV company filmed our exploits and it has recently been shown in France. The UK seems ahead of the French on traceability, which is, on the face of it, surprising. Especially as we are governed by the same European laws. But then again, perhaps less surprising when you recall the 'horsegate' scandal – a travesty that emerged from a country so legendary for its food culture.
See the documentary here.
That's all from me, but I'd love to hear from you if you have any comments on the menu or a recent experience.
