One of Jeremy's friends is a wine merchant with a 'penchant' for sweet wine. Mark will come and talk to us about the nuances behind this generic term and will advise us on how to marry them with food.

Cost: £20 per head, providing you with the wine and nibbles.

Children's Food Festival

27 Jun 2009 - 00:00

After quite a few meetings, our proposal is taken shape and has been accepted by Slow Food UK and the Festival organisation committee

Therefore there will be a Slow Food stand at the Festival, managed by Slow Food UK with heavy support form our little convivium...

The idea is to walk kids through the senses allowing them to enjoy food on the basis of guessing games

We obviously need volunteers on this, the more the merrier... even a couple of hours of your time during the weekend of the 27-28th of June would be greatly appreciated!
