Food Legacy and Ethical Eats to host festival and street food workshop on 8th May

Food Legacy and Ethical Eats will host a festival and street food workshop on Tuesday 8th May, 2012.

This half-day workshop is for festival and street-food caterers looking to learn more about building healthy and sustainable food principles into their dishes.

Festival and event organisers may also be interested in participating, to find out what they should be asking of traders and building into their food policies.

We’ll also be launching our new Festival Food Guidelines, which highlight the issues and provide practical solutions for festival and street-food traders.

The workshop will include sessions on:

  • using local and seasonal produce
  • sustainable fish
  • higher-welfare meat
  • waste
  • healthier catering.

An ‘ask the experts’ panel will cover topics such as working as managing costs, working as collective, and communicating good food credentials.

Over lunch, stallholders will have the opportunity to network and to ‘meet the suppliers’, with a selection of local-to-London producers showing off their produce.

The event will kick off with a tour of the New Covent Garden wholesale market, where attendees will be introduced to market suppliers, and taste some of the produce on offer.

Cost: £15, with a discount price of £10 for London Food Link members, Sustainable Restaurant Association members and signatories of the Food Legacy Pledge
