Rachel will demo how to create a delicious wild food and cricket dukka as well as easy to make protein 'cricket' balls; the perfect way to introduce insects and wild food in to your diet. On arrival you will receive an Urban Food Fortnight special Jensen gin that Rachel has gently infused with wild ingredients. After all the thought provoking conversations, The Table’s Shaun Alpine-Crabtree will treat you to a delicious light vegan supper* which will be served with a glass of wine or London beer**.

Six Legs Farm is a family enterprise breeding high welfare insects, currently crickets, as a sustainable alternative protein source in the UK. Rachel currently teaches preserves at River Cottage and wild food cookery at Made in Hackney. She’s the author of Less Meat, More Veg, Five, and Tonics & Teas.

We’re giving away two tickets worth £60. To enter, you need to join London Food Link before 18 September and we’ll put your name into the hat!
