Food Hall

Step inside the harvest inspired food hall where you can pick up something delicious for lunch or take home for tea.  You'll find our Cookery Theatre here too which is home to top chefs throughout the weekend.

Cookery Theatre 

Hosted by award winning author and broadcaster Mark Diacono, this is the place to be if you love seasonal cooking and local produce. 

On Saturday, fresh from the Great British Menu ad Saturday Kitchen, chef Andi Oliver shares her passion for cooking.  Celebrating our theme of fruit and flowers takes Andi back to one of the dishes on her first menu at her restaurant Andi's.  A Persian spiced rubbed slow roast shoulder of goat studded with medjool dates, mujadara and crispy onions. The juxtaposition of rich goat shoulder with the deep sweetness of the dates is a thing of great beauty.

The Raymond Blanc Cookery School treat us to a culinary journey from plot to plate, discovering heritage fruit and vegetables on the way.

Judith Hann, former Tomorrow's World presenter, joins Mark to talk about her career and rustles up some tasty herb inspired treats.  The demo will be followed by a book signing where you can buy Judith's latest book Herbs: Delicious Recipes and Growing Tips to Transform Your Food. 

Join Selasi Gbormittah on Sunday, the charming, laid-back star of Great British Bake Off 2016, as he bakes up a treat using fruit and flowers. 

Barman of the Year Gianluca Austin-Rizzo, from The Cottage in the Wood, joins us both afternoons to muddle and mix a selection of delicious cocktails.

Throughout the weekend Mark will rustle up delicious harvest inspired dishes with the help of the food producers exhibiting in the hall.
