Love Food have released a taster of what visitors can expect at this year’s ‘Spring Festival’. The biggest event of the Love Food calendar is now in its third year and promises to be one of the highlights of any Bristol food lover’s diary.
“We are delighted to announce that local legends ‘The Fabulous Baker Brothers” of Hobbs House Bakery will be headlining the cookery school, Tom and Henry will be cooking up a storm at the event following their popular series on Channel 4.
They will be joined on stage by Barny Haughton with his new project The Square Foundation and Arthur Potts Dawson of The People’s Supermarket, along with a whole host of local chefs, foragers, growers and producers. The line up this year is crammed full of excellence and we are very proud to be working with some exceptionally talented and passionate food lovers.”
The Love Food market, made up of over 70 of the finest producers in the South West will see appearances from Trealy Farm charcuterie, Bath Soft Cheese, The Real Olive Company, Thoughtful Bread and many more delicious names.
The festival will also host the Bristol Good Food Awards producers category. In association with Guide 2 Bristol the awards will celebrate some of the exceptional produce we have in the city and will give the public a chance to sample food from both entrants and winners throughout the weekend. Judges include Fiona Beckett, Xanthe Clay, Angela Mount and Thane Prince. Winners will be announced live at the event.
Arts and crafts workshops in the colourful children’s area will provide a magical playground in which to make shields, juggling balls, ribbon skirts, butterfly wings and much more, all from recycled materials. Free cookery lessons, gardening, face painting, wall doodling, an Easter egg hunt and the chance to meet some newly hatched chicks will be sure to put a smile on the face of our younger visitors.
There will also be a Love Book library area with talks, signings and storytelling, a Love Bike area full of cycling fun and information on sustainable transport, and a Love Wine area with tastings, food and wine matching and some superb master-classes.
“I’m very much looking forward to welcoming you to our Spring Festival, we are pulling out all the stops to bring you an exceptional event showcasing all the things that make our city so fantastic, so come along and join in the celebrations!”
What a great start to the Easter holidays!
