Impact of time, place and journey on Shimabuku’s ‘Cucumber Journey’ (p.156 – 157)
Shimabuku’s ‘Cucumber Journey’ is about the relationship of change and time. He embarked on a two-week-long canal boat trip from London to Birmingham. As he made his slow trip, he also made slow food – pickling. His journey is an appreciation of how things move and change through time and place; the cucumbers fermented in the time it took him to get from one place to another. Basically, there are some things that cannot be rushed; ‘There are places to which you can only travel slowly, and there are things that can only be made slowly’.
