Morning manifesto: How to make time
Breakfast & walk | Saturday, August 25, 2018 | 8.00
Morning walk and breakfast at Østergro
"There is an energy in the earlier hours, an awareness I enjoy. In today’s world we tend to wake as late as we can, timed to when we have to work. But we don’t need to chase the day." (Allan Jenkins)
Allan Jenkins is editor of Observer Food Monthly. He was previously editor of the Observer Magazine, food and drink editor on the Independent newspaper and once lived in an experimental eco-community on Anglesey, growing organic food on the edge of the Irish sea.
For the Observer Food Monthly editor, who was raised in children’s homes and foster care, growing food and flowers has been his saving and his solace. In his garden journal cum memoir Plot 29 he unearthed his roots. Now he wrote a new book called MORNING (How to make time: a manifesto) and we are very glad to have him back with us for a very special book presentation.
What will happen?
Join us for a morning with Allan Jenkins. Go on an early morning walk through the Østerbro neighbourhood with the British journalist and find out about his special connections to Denmark and Copenhagen. Listen to birds, experience how the city wakes up and how morning routines can be different and which effect that can have on your day. And life.
Allan will be talking about his encounters and experiences. He kept an early morning diary from his window, interviewed early risers like Jamie Oliver, looked into different cultures and habits and has many morning stories to share with us.
The walk will end on the rooftop of Østergro, where Gro Spiseri and Hahnemanns Køkken will team up to serve you a beautiful breakfast - and you can let this special morning fade out with a view over the city.
Our friends Isabella and Hannah from Books & Company will have Allan's books for you.
The ticket includes the tour with Allan (in English) and the breakfast with coffee or tea. We will meet at 8.00am at Hahnemanns Køkken and it will take about 2-3 hours.
