Food Festival - a new discovery


I was recently invited to do a Q and A session at the UK's first ever Children's Food Festival with chef Raymond Blanc and food writer Sophie Grigson keanly supportive of the whole event.  It was one of those beautiful English summer days, in an idyliic setting near Wittenham Clumps in Oxfordshire. You can see from the thumbnail photo that Ruthie was my expert guide (sitting on the hay bails to my left and Lucia championing her sister from the audience.

The Festival was very well attended with lots of focus on healthy eating and food for children with allergies of different kinds.  My Q&A session was lively with lots of excellent questions that I have tried to capture in the FAQ section of this website.  


Whilst at the show, I wanted to mention a new discovery of mine, Genius GF bread - absolutely delicious plain or toasted - a major evolution in the standard and quality of GF bread (that, let's be honest had a major way to go up until now). Congratulations to Lucinda Bruce-Gardyne, a lovely, committed baker. For more, go to:
