Sadly the year in our veg garden hasn’t started too well, since we just had a couple of trees taken down and our raspberry canes and rhubarb got rather crushed in the process. Fingers crossed for a speedy recovery.
But, for all of us hoping to eat some produce from our gardens (or allotments) this year, the Edible Garden Show this weekend sounds like just the inspiration needed to get us back on our feet. Now, if they could just organise plenty of sunshine for our north-facing plot….
The Edible Garden Show, Alexandra Palace, London, 20th – 22nd March 2015
For Foodies, spring heralds not just warmer, longer days, but also the opportunity to celebrate the best food from the most passionate growers and producers at the country’s many and varied food festivals. To kick start things, there are a couple coming up at the end of this month for those of us in the south of the country.
First of all the Brighton Vegfest happens at the end of this month, then moves to Bristol in May. A full on festival of all things vegan, the weekend includes among other things, cookery demos, film screenings, comedy and yoga area, as well as exhibitors and food village.
VegFest Brighton, 28th – 29th March 2015, Brighton Centre BN1 2GR
The same weekend, but in Islington in London, is the Chocolate Festival. Promising the country’s top artisan chocolatiers under one roof, this sounds like a chance for some serious indulgence. The Health Trail features raw and free-from chocs if you feel like staying on the right side of virtuous!
The Chocolate Festival, 27th – 29th March, Business Design Centre, Islington, N1 0QH.
