This weekend the Foodies Festival comes to Battersea Park for three days. I went last year and it was lots of fun (& I've still got some of the lovely oils, mustards and other supplies in my cupboards).
"Join us at a Foodies Festival near you this summer for the chance to meet top chefs and experience the most exciting mix of food, drink and culinary talent.
You will see cooking demonstrations from Michelin starred and top chefs including Ed Baines, Levi Roots, Martin Blunos, Rachel Green and Cyrus Todiwala who will prepare their favourite recipes for you and show you how to prepare these dishes at home.
You can sample and buy artisan food from over 100 exhibitors, indulge in signature dishes from top restaurants and sip summer cocktails shaken by expert mixologists.
Enjoy cuisine from around the world, showcased in the Street Food Avenue; relax in a deckchair and enjoy an ice cream on the Jamie magazine City Beach; children can enjoy hands on cookery classes in the brand new Childrens Cookery School.
Make a full day of it with a unique mixture of masterclasses from top experts in the Food and Drinks Theatre, entertainment and music on the live stage."
