Well the weather has been shining the sky has been blue – what better way to celebrate the fact that spring has finally sprung than by a foodie festival this weekend.
The Love Food Spring Festival takes place this weekend 10.30 til 6 on Saturday and 11 til 5 on Sunday and offering an abundance of mouth watering local food producers with the best that the west country has to offer – including Trealy Farm Charcuterie, Love Pattiserie, Tyntesfield House, Bristol Cider Shop and Grape & Grind.
Particularly exciting for me is the cookery school which will not only feature free food from top chefs such as Freddie Bird from The Lido but also classes on how to make everything from pasta to butter, cupcakes to sushi!
Those interested in growing their own food can get advice from local growers Glenholme Herbs and at 1pm each day there will be Rude Health Rants from speakers including: Arthur Potts Dawson of The Peoples Supermarket, Geoff Sayers of The Well Hung Meat Co. Dr Angela Raffle of Bristol’s Food Policy Council, Phil Haughton of The Better Food Company and Sam Leach of Mark’s Bread
The other big temptation will be the Taste Theatre hosting sessions on pairing food and drink including names such as Orchard Pig, Bristol Beer Factory, Trethowan’s Dairy and Bristol Cider Shop.
So come on down, put your feet up eat some great food and indulge in a tipple or two of west country cider – best of all it’s FREE!
