If you are looking for a great day out for all the family head down to the Real Food Festival at Earls Court, London. From 5 - 8 May join in with a celebration of extraordinary food and drink all of which has been sustainably and ethically produced. There will be a chance to see, smell, taste and buy food directly from the producers who make it as well as learn from experts and professionals about the food they eat. In attendance will be 500 of the finest artisan food producers.
In addition the Real Food Theatre will be packed with top chefs including Giorgio Locatelli, Jason Atherton and Valentine Warner and the Real Food Cookery school will offer both children and adults the chance to hone their skills in the kitchen. Visitors will be able to get more hands-on experience at butchery and artisan food workshops, pick their own tea in a Cornish botanical garden and learn more about cheese, wine and chocolate with special talks, demos and tastings.
In the Kids Taste Tent children will have the chance to learn how to make butter, bread and even shuck oysters. Garden Organic will also be there with their 'Grow Your Own' workshops - popular with all those with green fingers.
