The events, part of the Ginger and Spice Festival 2018 in the town, feature Olivier Blanc, creator of the award winning educational food and nature app for children, ‘Henri Le Worm’. Olivier will be joining local chefs, community project leaders and school staff for an inspired celebration of local, seasonal and home grown food during the fortnight, taking place during Market Drayton’s Ginger and Spice Festival 2018.
All demonstrations and workshops taking place will promote the importance of healthy, local and seasonal food choices as well as highlighting the importance that nature plays in the food cycle and food production process.
Olivier will be demonstrating with recipes inspired by his chef father, Raymond Blanc, OBE, using the fun and creative characters featured in the app Henri Le Worm. He will be incorporating fresh ingredients grown in the school’s community garden as well as other seasonal produce kindly donated by sponsor and Longlands’ Primary School caterer, Alliance in Partnership. AiP will also be serving seasonal British produce to the school children for the duration of British Food Fortnight.
AiP will also be providing a smoothie bike for the school children to enjoy and learn from on the day.
The Ginger and Spice Festival will be taking place during British Food Fortnight from 26th to 29th September 2018, and will include an eclectic mix of festival fringe events celebrating the culinary heritage on the town of Market Drayton.
