A host of exciting names in the UK’s food scene will be joining the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) for its Festival of Flavours: a new ‘plot-to-plate’ extravaganza, taking place at RHS Garden Harlow Carr, this Saturday 22 – and Sunday 23 October.
Vibrant world dishes overflowing in flavours from the garden will be prepared live using freshly picked ingredients by participating chefs. The schedule of talks, demos, and tastings, is aiming to encourage people to grow a range of flavours in the garden, on a balcony or in a window box.
Multiple Masterchef participants will cook up world recipes with locally grown ingredients, including 2022 Masterchef Champion Eddie Scott, 2022 runner-up Olayemi Abimola Adelekan and Afsaneh Kaviani – the 2012 finalist on a mission to spread her passion for Persian food. (We're across her amazing recipes at Mag North.)
The cookery theatre will be packed all weekend, with demos from local chefs including Iain Wilkinson (Head Chef at Yolk Farm Kitchen) and Farmison & Co (ethical butchers).
There's also going to be numerous trade-stands and street-food vendors for visitors to sample from, as well as ‘Kiddycook’ workshops for families. Don’t miss the eye-catching displays in the Late Fruit and Vegetable Competition, or the Northern Fruit Group Apple Display, where you can bring in your own apples for RHS experts to identify and offer growing advice on.
