Working alongside Jo Ingleby (BBC Food and Farming Awards cook of the year 2015) together we were demonstrating what could be created from a simple veg box (kindly provided by The Community Farm). Jo's Malaysian style vegetable curry was incredibly fragrant, wafting over to tempt the audience whilst I created Arabic flatbreads and a zesty carrot, celeriac & poppy seed salad.
It was a great chance to try and show how exciting, tasty and simple vegetable cookery can be and it seemed to go down well with the crowd who came forward to taste our creations.
This video gives a feel of the whole festival, and includes a section on Jo and I.
Jo and I were working with Darran Maclane as part of The Bristol Good Food tour to try and take simple, healthy food out into communities around Bristol. Please do contact us if you would like us to come to your area or event, we are passionate about making a difference in Bristol in this Green Capital year.
