A Taste of London
September 21, 2016
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Come prepared to taste and savour at this special event hosted by The Food Assembly and Food At Heart. ‘Taste Of London’ for Urban Food Fortnight is an evening of reflection, tasting, creating and eating.
Take some time out from your busy life to pause and truly taste. Lead by Meredith of Food At Heart, you’ll use all your senses to focus your attention on delicious ingredients sourced from The Food Assembly suppliers.
During the evening you’ll be introduced to tasting meditation and will take part in some fun tasting activities. You’ll also gain useful tips for listening to your body so you can discover the types of foods and flavours that make you feel good. This is an opportunity to explore flavours and create delicious food.
For the main part of the session, you’ll join forces with the other flavour-loving participants to create tasty salads and open sandwiches using delicious seasonal ingredients. It’s a bit like MasterChef’s invention test, but less judgy.
It will show that salad and sandwiches really aren’t boring; with just a few ingredients and some creative flair, you can construct delicious, simple and nourishing dishes using ingredients from The Food Assembly producers. The menu is meat-free, but is definitely not taste free!
The cost includes all ingredients. Tickets are non-refundable, but you may give/sell your ticket to another person.
About The Food Assembly
Launched in 2011, The Food Assembly brings people together to buy directly from their local farmers and foodmakers. Customers join their local Food Assembly, pre-order their food online and pick it up at a local pop-up market where they get to meet the farmers who make it.
All the food comes from an average of 26 miles and there is no food waste as the products are pre-ordered. For every £1 spent, 90p stays in the local economy. Selling through The Food Assembly, farmers and foodmakers get over 80% for every product sold, compared to the 15%-25% that most supermarkets offer them.
