I really like this: The InterContinental in Park Lane is hosting a series of activities to promote local producers from Ludlow, the Shropshire market town, on 9th - 12th July, in their Cookbook Cafe. There are lots of events planned, including lunches and tastings every day. For full details of what's going on day by day have a look here
"InterContinental London Park Lane has announced a taster of the internationally renowned Ludlow Food and Drink Festival on 9th - 12th July 2013. Hosted in the hotel’s Cookbook Cafe, which champions sustainable ingredients, the festival will welcome top independent food and drink producers from the small town with a large reputation for gastronomy.
Executive Chef Paul Bates has worked closely with the festival organisers to pick from the world-class farms and speciality producers in Ludlow, recently named one of Britain’s top spot for foodies. Chef Bates will create a daily-changing lunch and dinner menu that celebrates key suppliers including Oliver’s Cider and Perry Ltd, Brock Hall Farm cheese, Forest Pig, Great Berwick Organic beef, Fordhall Farm organic lamb, and Bonbonniere chocolates.
The Cookbook Cafe Market Table will be brimming with Ludlow produce, local charcuterie and cheeses, and along with daily changing desserts featuring apples, berries and strawberries from Siddington Farms. In addition to Oliver’s Cider and Perry Ltd, diners can enjoy Hobson’s Brewery real ales and Chase English vodka served with local elderflower cordials from Nurses Cottage Drinks.
In the evenings, family-style dishes will be accompanied by a demonstration, tastings, and talks from local producers. During lunch Cookbook Cafe’s interactive cooking station will be transformed into a Ludlow deli, serving made-to-order sandwiches and rustic soups."
