On Wednesday 15 July 2015, around sixty of the capital’s most passionate community food growers, small-batch producers and ethical chefs came together to make plans for Urban Food Fortnight.
The event was organised by London Food Link as part of its work uniting people in the capital around grub. In the urbane surroundings of generous host The Imperial in Chelsea, attendees met, mingled, munched and made plans for the forthcoming fortnight of hyper-local feasting in September.
To help inspire Urban Food Fortnight newbies, London Food Link’s Sarah Williams introduced Shaun Alpine-Crabtree of The Table Café in Southwark, and Sam Smith of Sutton Community Farm, to talk about previous years’ activities.
It was then back to the chat and tasting, with a spread laid on by The Imperial using tipples and morsels from London growers and small-batch producers, including The Celtic Bakers, Cobble Lane Cured, Crayfish Bob, Crown & Queue Meats, The Dalston Cola Company, Growing Communities, Kappacasein, Organic Lea, Sipsmith, Sutton Community Farm and Tickles of London.
Urban Food Fortnight 2015 runs from 11-27 September.
