When he isn’t shooting films, disputing water rights with the elderly, or fighting for the welfare of whales, actor Pierce Brosnan is at home enjoying a potato and keeping a green kitchen. He recently revealed his food cravings in the February 2008 issue of Bon Appetit saying, “Potatoes-baked, mashed, roasted and boiled, or fried with cold sliced tomatoes. I could eat them every night of the week. I can’t live without a good potato. And Irish soda bread, hot from the oven with lashings of butter.”
Staying in line with his conservation and environmental beliefs, Brosnan is also quick to highlight key points to a greener kitchen. He handed out some tips for those looking to follow suit at home. From the article,
“‘Compost scraps – from banana peels to coffee grounds – and green waste. Purchase a turntable composter and start a green waste pile that can fortify your garden naturally. Purchase all-natural organic cleansers, recylced paper products, organic cotton, and non GM) (genetically modified organism) food products.'”
Respect! It’s great to hear of more celebrities beyond Ed Begley Jr. actually putting some effort into going green at home. Brosnan just finished filming the movie version of the musical Mama Mia! in Greece and will soon step into the well-tailored shoes of businessman/thief Thomas Crown to shoot the sequel to the ’99 hit The Thomas Crown Affair.
