Hedgehog Awareness Week 2017

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!

  1. This dish is too beautiful! I love the pop of colors!
    The idea of Hedgehog Awareness Week interests me so much because (although being an obvious animal lover) it helps remind people that we share this Earth with other wonderful creatures and should be extra precocious for their sake.


    1. Thank you! Yes it's important to remember the smaller creatures as well, I'm also promoting the bee cause, as they are very much in danger in Britain.

  2. i adore hedgehogs and our echidnas in australia. such cuties. love your hedgehog dish.
