Lucio's monocolour clothing days in New York turn to an attempt at monocolour eating across the ocean. When an urgent need for colour was felt, dinner was organised and a colour chosen. Meals were planned together and made together for the most part, with the exception of black, which was a grand potluck for Els' birthday. Absolutely no artificial food colouring allowed.
