Organic Food Festival Bristol


10am -6pm, 12th September - 13th September 2009


Bristol Harbourside

You can pick up cooking tips from Raymond Blanc and Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall at this year's Organic Food Festival Bristol. The celebrity chefs are joining more than 250 organic producers at the two-day event, the biggest of its kind in Europe.

Street Food Bazaar
As part of the Soil Association's Organic Fortnight the Harbourside will host the 2009 Organic Food Festival Bristol - a street food bazaar filled with dozens of food pavilions and cafes. There are lots of activities but undoubtedly the highlight of this year's festival will be the cooking demonstrations from Britain's celebrity chefs Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall and Raymond Blanc. They'll be joining the Bordeaux Quay cookery school who'll be showing you how to cook real food on a budget.

Ethical Ale
The event isn't just about learning to love crooked carrots though. There's a wealth of ethical produce on offer at the Organic Food Festival Bristol including an organic bar with wines, ales and ciders available for you to take home. You can also pick up a range of homewares that are kind to the planet from the Health Beauty and Textiles Pavilions where there'll also be clothes, skincare products and cosmetics that are ethically and organically produced.

Grow Your Own
One of the aims of the Soil Association is to encourage people to create localised food systems, and at the Organic Food Festival Bristol you can learn how to cultivate a very, very local food source. Riverford Organic have offered to share their tips and tricks on growing a veg patch at home. They'll be at the Gardening Pavilion offering advice on effective pest control, where to get your seeds and the best tools to use. There'll also be the chance to find your own plot of land through the festival's allotment networks.

Food Heroes
A new feature for the festival will be the Organic All Stars area, a showcase of the Soil Association's Organic Food Award winners. There'll also be a Taste Activities Tent for children and Granny Skills Workshops which are aimed at encouraging inter-generational sharing of basic cooking skills.

The Organic Food Festival Bristol takes place at the Harbourside from 10am - 6pm, 12th September and 10am - 5pm, 13th September 2009. Entry is £5, but admission is free for under 16s and Soil Association members.
