On 16 October 2013, we joined in the celebrations of World Food Day with a special workshop focussing on how we can have a positive impact by eating local, seasonal, plant-based food and making use of the invisible abundance around us. We were delighted to be joined by Gemma Harris from Urban Harvest who led us in a discussion about what it means to eat sustainably and respectfully. The evening featured live cookery demonstrations of spelt roti bread, almond milk and a salad made from foraged ingredients, as well as a chance to taste acorn crackers, pea and bramley dip, spelt sushi, falafel made with Hodmedod‘s UK-grown pulses, edible pastry plates and quince fruit leather.
