Bristol Food Connections: Family Pick & Cook

Once again, we're teaming forces with award winning chef Jo Ingleby for a special Family Pick & Cook day as part of Bristol Food Connections Festival!

Kids will be getting hands-on harvesting crops from the fields at The Community Farm, and cooking them up into a fresh, seasonal, organic feast to share.

In-line with this year's festival theme of 'Time', we'll be exploring how long those crops have taken to grow, from seed to harvest and then from field-to-fork!

Children aged 2-16 welcome (accompanied by an adult).

Jo Ingleby (BBC Cook of the year 2015) and Claire Rosling from Earthwise will be leading the day. With their great experience combined, this is sure to be a fantastic experience for those budding chefs and fussy eaters alike!

NB. All dishes prepared will be vegetarian and we always design the menu to accommodate any dietary requirements of the group.


We will be holding two separate cookery sessions as follows:




Our Cookery Days are held at The Community Farm, a beautiful Organic farm South of Bristol, over-looking Chew Valley Lake. Click here for a map.

Parent Feedback:

The setting and the flow of activities was just so perfect! Your team was fantastic and Jo incarnates a subtle mix of charisma with humbleness that adds onto this great ‘feel good factor’! There is so much passion behind your work that it genuinely shines out. We will come back for sure!
Wholesome, holistic, inclusive and rewarding, delivered by a team of smiling ladies!
Awesome (words of my 7 year old)! Great fun in a relaxed atmosphere!
Fun, interactive, interesting, lovely, hands-on
