Mandel reports on improved sleeping conditions, talks about community and tradition, and puts out an open call for art and collaboration at RAW:almond.
Mandel beds down for night three of twenty-one on the frozen confluence of the Red and Assiniboine rivers in Winnipeg. He gives thanks for good people all around and reflects on the most challenging night for crew of RAW:almond 2014 so far. Our intrepid chef realizes his routine is changing. That his spirit is changing. He receives a powerful gift.
