During our 2018 Ginger and Spice Festival, we hosted a series of educational food demonstrations and workshops about the importance of fresh, seasonal and locally produced food. This was followed by a celebratory community meal in collaboration with local chefs, sponsors and Love British Food Ambassador, Olivier Blanc.
The celebrations, which took place during British Food Fortnight 2018, were at the Zone and then Longland’s Primary School, Market Drayton.
This community fringe event championed local producers such as the farm shop on the high street, ‘The Field’s Kitchen’, Morgan’s Country Butchers, Longslow Bakery, Flower and White and local gingerbread manufacturer, Original Biscuit Bakers. The event was also sponsored by Alliance in Partnership, the company who provide daily schools meals to Longlands Primary School and who are specialists in educational catering.

Olivier, who is the founder of the award winning educational food and nature app for children, ‘Henri Le Worm’ based on a character of his chef father, Raymond Blanc, OBE, used recipes inspired by the app which incorporated fresh, seasonal vegetables grown in the school’s community garden and seasonal produce, kindly donated by sponsor Alliance in Partnership.
