Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall to open the Food and Plant fair

May 7 2014

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall will be opening this year’s Food and Plant Fair in Horatio’s Garden on Sunday 29th June. The fair will have around fifty stalls showcasing some of the best producers from the local area.

Visitors will be able to choose lunch in the garden from a selection of delicious hot and cold foods, from stone baked pizza fresh from the oven to Thai cuisine. The fair will be a great opportunity for tastings and to stock up the larder with tempting artisan products including breads, cheeses, chutneys, cakes and biscuits, vegetables, honey, oils and Mrs Mack’s delicious organic poppy seed dressing.

Horatio’s Garden, designed by award-winner Cleve West, will be the perfect setting to inspire, with plants on sale and advice available from the gardening team. Toria Britten from Flowers from the Plot will be giving a flower-arranging demonstration.

There will be a wide selection of crafts for sale including pottery and handmade gifts. Matt Belfrage will be selling his garden trugs and wonderful chopping boards made from local English walnut. Mark Coreth’s Stag and Doe sculptures will be on exhibition in the garden.

The Food and Plant Fair will be open from 11am to 3pm and entry is free.
